Cabin Fever: Family Friendly Version (2004)

This bonus feature runs just over a minute and starts off with director Eli Roth talking about how people told him he should make an alternate cut of CABIN FEVER so that they could also sell it to families so this here is the family friendly version of the movie. Of course this thing isn't meant to be taken serious and is pretty much a one-note joke. As I said, the actual movie runs less than a minute without the Roth introduction and is just a few clips from the non-nudity, non-violent and non-gory moments of the film.

I'm not sure if there was a point but I'm sure fans will enjoy the wink.

Three for the Road

3/10

Since "Cabin Fever" (2002) was rated "R", this family friendly version was produced for the film's DVD release. Apparently, it was decided that a brief opening scene featuring Rider Strong, Jordan Ladd, and James DeBello cuddling in the back seat of a truck was scene most worth seeing by the entire family. Certainly, it is one of the sweetest moments in the film, and highlights the latent homosexuality in the character played by Mr. DeBello, who sheepishly rests his head on handsome Rider Strong's shoulder, while wearing a hat that seems to be asking, "f u?" Handsome Mr. Strong appears undecided. Note that in the non-family version, DeBello is the only one without a sex partner; and, instead of shacking up, he immediately decides to hunt squirrels, because he perceives they are gay. Probably, this indicates he is "in the closet." Unfortunately, this version of "Cabin Fever" ends too soon.
