As a last hurrah after college, friends Jeff, Karen, Paul, Marcy and Bert embark on a vacation deep into the mountains. With the top down and the music up, they drive to a remote cabin to enjoy their last days of decadence before entering the working world. Then somebody gets sick. Karen's skin starts to bubble and burn as something grows inside her, tunneling beneath her flesh. The group is so repulsed, shocked and sickened watching their friend deteriorate before their eyes; they lock her in a shed to avoid infection. As they debate about how to save her, they look at one another and… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"... disgusting and brainless ..."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Cabin Fever starts small, and stays small, never reaching the transcendent Blair Witch heights of the biggest low-budget successes."
‑ Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
"If you take away the shocking makeup-effects work of KNB EFX Inc. there's not much there at all."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"[Director] Roth hasn't an original creative bone in his entire body..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Les références aux classiques de l'horreur, l'humour franchement drôle à certains moments et tout le gore réussiront peut-être à ne pas faire regretter l'achat du billet."
‑ Louis-Jérôme Cloutier, Panorama
"You've got to love a horror movie that wears its bloody influences so happily on its sleeve, and then proceeds to roll it up and start swinging the axe in a different direction."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Movies about flesh-eating viruses don't come along every day. Cabin Fever, which opens today, demonstrates why."
‑ Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
"...a nail-biting horror movie that has audiences alternately covering their eyes in fear during scenes of gory revelation, or guffawing out loud..."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"What it loses by trying to be a comedy, it makes up by trying to be a showcase for the grotesque."
‑ David Cornelius,
"Fever packs its share of jolts and none-too-shabby black humor, both worthy of a place alongside Romero"
‑ Jay Antani, Los Angeles Alternative
"You won't want to eat, drink or be touched after a bout of Cabin Fever."
‑ Mark Rahner, Seattle Times
"Like much of Cabin Fever, the performances are competent and uninteresting."
‑ Bob Campbell, Newark Star-Ledger
"An unabashed homage to grungy '70s and '80s rural horror."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Tenta desesperadamente criar uma aura cult ao estilo Evil Dead, mas consegue apenas ser patético em seu racismo, sua homofobia, sua misoginia e seu senso de humor adolescente."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Like 2000's Ravenous, it mixes up the gruesome and the funny so that your own reactions - laughter tinged with outrage - startle you."
‑ Jake Euker, F5 (Wichita, KS)
