When the Fever Breaks is a movie made with one of the smallest budgets possibly, probably written, produced, directed by a few friends that decided to try their luck with a horror, a cheaper experience, especially if you bind it with the zombie or in the woods genre.
What I truly disliked about it is the fact that they didn't try to develop their own vision, but copied everything already seen on the screen, in order to make it feel like a movie. So we have the most stereotypical characters combined with standard dialogue lines and reactions that make no sense but always seem to find their way in these movies. The action is easy to predict, fighting scenes are sped up but constantly with shaking blackouts, and overall a bore of a view.
When you start from rock bottom, usually, your only way is up, but somehow sadly here they decided to crawl along, move a little and call it a day. I wish I could appreciate the effort put into it, but there is none, even tho they found a way to make this work, a horror in a house, zombies outside, easily a tribute to Night of the Living Dead, yet the final product is weak and uninteresting.
I say, do try, and try again, only that next time, be brave and show us something different. Something that came from your own imagination and not copying what others did so many times before. I look forward into that.
