Cabin FeverDirector: Eli Roth
Five college buddies retreat to the woods for a little R & R and end up getting a horrific lesson in infectious disease in this low-budget shocker. Cabin Fever stars Rider Strong as the geeky Paul, who hopes to settle in around the campfire with his brash buds Jeff (Joey Kern) and Bert (James DeBello), and make the moves on the nubile-but-shy Karen (Jordan Ladd). Unfortunately, a wayward, forest-dwelling vagrant (Arie Verveen) stumbles into their lives, his skin badly desiccated by a mysterious virus. Fearing for their own lives, the quintet decide to do away with the man, with little success: He stumbles away from the campsite and into a nearby stream, where his disease quickly infects the local water supply. It isn't long before the oblivious co-eds get a taste of the man's illness, and in their desperation, each learns that he or she will stop at nothing to survive. Cabin Fever premiered at the 2002 Toronto Film Festival, where it was snapped up by Lions Gate for a fall 2003 release.

This movie is great! Not really scary, but very entertaing and funny! I recommend this to any horror movie fan.
This has got to be one of the worst horror movies I've ever seen. I was actually rooting for the illness because the campers were stupid and they deserved to die. It would've been scarier if I could've cared for the characters.
this was the most clever horror movie i've ever seen. it kept me on my toes (unlike most horror films). it was scary as heel and GROSS!!!! Loved it!!!!
Amazing movie about AIDS. It might take you a while to figure it out, but the movie is worth you money. Eli Roth did an amazing debut.
I have to say that this was one of the worst attempts at a horror movie I have seen in a very long time. Not only was it not scary, but the storyline and characters were horrible. If you dare attempt to make it through this movie the last scene before the credits will surely re-affirm what I have told you. If only I could put less then a star!
Talk about lots of blood/gore. Bit much. But its a horror movie--theres suppsoed to be a lot of blood. Dont watch if you get queasy. Overall this was an ok movie--gave me a few scares. And there was a few funny moments too.
Cabin Fever was by far the most fantastically scary, bloody, and entertaining as a horror movie could get. The basic idea is friends go camping and they get a flesh eating disease that kills them off one at a time. While this is all going on the characters in this movie are freaking you out too. And what makes this movie so scary is that it takes place in remote woods. Don't watch this if you are home alone, out camping, or easily disturbed by blood or horrifing images. Ladies and Gentleman this is the greatest horror movie of all time forget all the other ones. This should have won all of the oscars and then some. Oh yeah, there is somehot girls in this for all of you guys.
honostly i don't even know why i am waisting my time wrighting this review. This movie was absolutly terrible. I never want to see it again. It was literaly painful to sit through this movie. I really hated it. It was not scary, it was not thrilling, it just was not a good movie. Although the acting in the movie was very good it is covered up by it's lame plot. They try to improve the movie by filing it with sex seans and drugs but that didn't help. Don't even waist your time to rent this.Don't even pick up the box to read about it.
you might remember Rider Strong from the 90's sitcom Boy Meets World but he became an adult doing a scary film in 2002 the movie Cabin Fever about a bunch of teens by a cabin getting killed sorta like Friday The 13th but probably much better im starting to enjoy horror movies im sure i'll enjoy this one
The movie Cabin Fever is not scary and not gross, but funny. I expected more on the flesh eating virus, I thought the people were going to die like the Nazis in Raiders Of The Lost Ark. It was great to see the moron with the gun shooting at some bum.
When i was introduced to this film, it had been a long time since i had actualy enjoyed a newer horror flick. this one hit home. I enjoyed how hatefull and angry the teenagers were. Reminded me of a couple of my friends and alot of people i know. It was just gory enough especially when the girl was shaving her legs and flesh just came right off her leg. Definately one of my favorites
Five college students were on Spring break, and they decided to rent a cabin that was surrounded by forest and also contained a lake nearby. Everthing seemed to be going fine till a diseased man came knocking on their door. First, they slammed the door shut, frightened, frightened that the disease the man contained might be contagious. The man went too far when he tried stealing their truck, so they went after him with everything they had. They also noticed that the man's skin was eating itself. One of the cautious kids accidentally set the man on fire where the man fled to the lake and jumped in to try to stop his flesh from burning anymore than it was (where he decapatated). Now the lake was poluted with diseased water that if it were to touch your lips your skin will automatically start to eat itself in a day period, and the kids are unaware of this; unaware of the poisonious water. The worst thing is, the lake gave the kids their water supplies (like showers/tubs and sinks), and if one kid catches it, chances are more will......
This is a terrible horror film is it suppose to scare you or something, I have to admit the gore effects were pretty entertaining, but it was mostly acting like one of the South park episodes.
This is a must see movies. Just dont drink the water in the woods when u go camping
This movie I liked a lot. It really kept my attention,I couldnt keep my eyes off the screen. It was funny, gory, weird and as scary as a movie could get. I had to sleep with the lights on and since im a horror movie FANATIC that is rare! Watch it,buy it.
