When a group of friends enjoying a bachelor cruise in the Caribbean stumble upon a research facility on a remote island, a deadly virus is unleashed. The group must find a way to survive before the flesh eating virus consumes them all.
The college friends Paul, Karen, Bert, Marcy and Jeff rent an isolated cabin in the woods to spend a week together. When they arrive, a man contaminated with a weird disease asks for help to them, but they get in panic and burn the man, who falls in the water reservoir and dies. The whole group, except Karen, makes a pact of drinking only beer along the week without knowing where the dead body is. When Karen drinks tap water and gets the disease, the group begins their journey to hell.Written by

An unreleased scene, which would have gone shortly after Jeff and Marcy's sex scene, showed them having a violent fight, complete with them throwing objects at one another as well as harsh verbal abuse. It was intended to add another layer to their relationship and depict them as being locked in a volatile pattern of passionate sex and passionate aggression. See more »
In scenes immediately before and after she sleeps with Paul, Marcy is wearing a silver ring on her right hand, yet it seems to disappear during the sex scene. Considering how impulsive the act was, it is unlike she would have stopped to remove it, and then replaced it. See more »

I usually hate to add a comment to a film with so many similar entries, but "Cabin Fever" was such a horrible movie watching experience that writing something down about it may cleanse my mind of the crap it just ingested.
One can certainly expect a B horror teen film to be stupid, pointless, badly written and poorly acted, but "Cabin Fever" deserves a special prize. Almost aggressively puerile in its focus and lack of understanding of even the most basic human motivations, "Cabin Fever" is what you'd come up with if you gave a drooling idiot 1.5 million dollars and a crew and said, "Shoot something!" I would need 6 hours to catalog the inanities that make up the plot, but suffice it to say that the film has no act one, act two or conclusion, just a bunch of bad ideas strung together. It fails at being either scary or coherent and only really qualifies as a film because it's bordered by titles.
The DVD makes the experience even more maddening because you actually can see the self-satisfied and talent-deprived director at work.
Note to director: If you're making a film about monsters, make a film about monsters. But if you populate your film with humans, it might help if you did a little research into how human beings behave (they have these things called feelings) and unless your entire cast are sociopaths, audiences like to relate to one of them. Clearly comic books have been your guide to date. The WORST!
