When Marcus, Dobbs and Josh find their way into the main laboratory of the facility they are met by Bridget, Dr. Edward's assistant. She is wearing a mask that is covering her mouth area. We hear her perfectly speaking to them without any problems in pronouncing any of the words of her sentences. But when Camila, the other assistant shows up and forces Bridget to remove her mask and show them her skin we see that Bridget's lips are gone due to the virus attack. So how was she speaking naturally before removing the mask? Then she wears the mask again and in the coming scenes we hear her perfectly speaking again. See more »

Not a necessary addition to the "Cabin Fever" movies...
Well, while the other "Cabin Fever" movies were entertaining, then "Cabin Fever: Patient Zero" was just too much. Sure there were some nice moments here and there, but it was just like the entire movie was directed by a randy teenager.
The storyline was adequate, didn't really always make coherent sense, but it was enjoyable. The movie doesn't require you to have you brain on while watching, so just sit back and relax.
The story, roughly summarized, is about a group of people going out to what they believe is a quiet, secluded island to celebrate a bachelor party, but come to find a bunker-like building on the island, and inside are ghastly secrets.
While the storyline is adequate, and doesn't really bring anything new to the genre, then what makes the movie worth watching is the effects and seeing people deteriorate and basically come apart.
But, this is also where the aforementioned randy teenager part kicks in. I am thinking about the unnecessary oral scene in the movie that ended with ... well, I am not going to give away spoilers here, but it was just ridiculous. But this is not the worst of things in the movie. There was a cat-fight scene, yep, that's right. But it gets better it is between two deteriorating women, where once again this was highly unnecessary for the movie, especially when a massive sex toy was brought into the fight.
While there were really badly chosen scenes added to the movie, then the make-up team really worked magic, and there were some really nice effects on the people as they deteriorated. And that alone was enough to make the movie watchable. Although, the movie just barely manages to sneak up on a 4 out of 10 stars rating.
"Cabin Fever: Patient Zero" is not a groundbreaking movie in any sense, nor is it one that really brings anything new or anything that the "Cabin Fever" movie series just wouldn't be the same without. So this movie hardly qualifies as a 'must watch' in order to come full circle with the previous movies.
