Cabin Fever Review

Synopsis:

While visiting their getaway cabin, five friends succumb to a flesh-eating disease.

Cabin Fever (2016) is an American horror movie that is 99 miserably minutes long and was shot in Oregon, USA. Cabin Fever is a horror movie remake revolving around a cabin in the woods with teenagers, gore, chaos and a flesh eating virus. Director Travis Zariwny (Scavengers (2013)) did a horrible job directing his first full-length movie that failed in almost every possible way. Cabin Fever is not a new director vision (I know it is a remake) because it appears to be the same script as Cabin Fever (2002) where the acting is worse, and there are major editing mistakes that are noticeable from a distance. I do not see the need for a remake to be made in a movie that is less than 15 years old, so it was a pointless remake that was a waste of money.

Cabin Fever is basically about the same as any other cabin fever movie. We have a bunch of kids/young adults going away to an isolated cabin in the woods for a weekend getaway so they can party hard, have fun, engage in sexual acts, smoke whatever (weed) and encounter chaos as they are attacked. The folks/teenagers were attacked by a flesh-eating disease that melts its hosts into a cheesy substance.

I gave this movie a two because, with all said above, I have to admit it was well shot and professionally produced. Negative about the film, bland actors who did not show that much effort in their performances, no suspense, no thrills, no real storyline, cheesy cheap, jokes, bad editing, goofs/mishaps, awful dialogue and bad makeup job. The movie contains nudity, sexual content, violence, bad language, and gore. I would recommend all horror fans to stay clear of this film and watch a rerun of your favorite show.
