Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
This gloomy chamber piece rises above its seriously sullen tone thanks to riveting central performances and an ending that is not necessarily apparent. There are some who will figure out what's going on pretty early in the game, but Henry Thomas' performance is cagier than it seems. His dementia -- if he's demented -- may be a red herring and the answer is more obvious than suspected. Then again, who knows? Teri Hatcher, who plays Nick's protective sister, is cast in a thankless role that is defined by looking worried and chain smoking, but her fans will appreciate that it's more than a cameo appearance. Film students will enjoy studying the evocative, nearly expressionistic tones of gray and black the film is shot in -- Nick is an art teacher, after all -- and director Alex Winter sustains an oddly captivating mood of paranoia that holds until the end. Not for all tastes, but for those who crave something offbeat, Fever might raise the temperature a little.
