Storyline

An art teacher spends his nights painting. One night he hears noises in the loft over his. Investigating, he discovers an interloper, who claims he is going to rent the area despite the landlord's earlier assurances that he would not rent the area. Shortly after this incident, the landlord is found murdered. The investigation turns towards a drunken evictee who was seen arguing with the landlord. However, his unwanted neighbor appears threatening and malevolent. Plagued by nightmares, the artist also starts acting irrationally and becomes a suspect.

Trivia

In an interview in the Fever dvd special features, Alex Winter said he wanted to get back to a type of filmmaking that is more about atmosphere than cutting and more about quiet than about sound. See more »

Quotes

Nick: [complaining to tenant who just moved in upstairs] I'm an artist, and at night, I work in my room.
Will: What's that got to do with me?
Nick: It's not you, it's the noise. You'll hear for yourself these walls are paper thin. Well, the landlord, he told me that he only used the top floor for storage.
Will: So what? You want me to move at 2:00 in the morning?

User Reviews

Ultimately Disappointing

To sum-up: Fever is a very dark, shadow-filled look into the formation of emotional disease and discomfort. The acting is very good on Henry Thomas' part as well as the direction by Alex Winter (Bill from the infamous Bill & Ted films) but the storyline has a few out-of-place moments and enough awkwardness to make even the sleepiest of viewers cringe.

Pro's & con's:

+ Henry Thomas' performance (you'll have trouble believing that it's the kid from E.T.)

+ Alex Winter's high quality and sometimes colorful directing style (including some nice, steady camera work which was more fitting for a film like this)

  • Very cheap visual effects


  • By the time it ends you'll feel like you've wasted your time
