Cabin Fever: Patient Zero (2014) Review
Cabin Fever: Patient Zero (2014) is an American sci-fi thriller horror movie that is 99 minutes and was filmed in the Dominican Republic. Director Kaare Andrews (The ABCs of Death (2012), Altitude (2010), ’...nettirwnU’ (2005)) did an okay job executing his second full-length movie. The film contains a flesh eating virus, sexual content with no nudity but it is not suitable for children, extreme violence, gore, bad language and gross graphic images.
Cabin Fever: Patient Zero revolves around four friends who only wanted to have an enjoyable weekend with a bachelor party on an isolated private island. The friends soon learn that they are not the only ones on the island and the island houses a deadly lab with a fast flesh eating virus. The virus was contained but escaped, and the four friends are in danger as they have to survive each other and the virus. Porter (Sean Astin - The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002), The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003), The Goonies (1985)) is a prisoner on the laboratory because he is a carrier of the virus and is unaffected by the virus. The scientists in the lab are working on creating a vaccine but was not quick enough as Porter infected a mouse and forced a lockdown of the station.
Two of the friends became infected after swimming in the water, and they began to look for help when they stumbled upon the lab. Everyone in the lab was either infected or dead, and there was not much to be found. The rest of the movie is predictable and should only be seen by Cabin Fever fans because no one else will like the film.
I assumed that this film was going to enlighten us about where the virus came from since the previous two movies did not but I was wrong. Almost all of the characters are likable and did an awesome job with their performances. Cabin Fever: Patient Zero is not a bad film but is not necessarily a movie that I can watch more than once. Cabin Fever fans who like the previous two installments will enjoy this chapter as well, and if you did not like the two previous installments, then this movie is not for you. I dislike the face full of blood scene performing gross (graphic image) sexual act on another person. I did enjoy the catfight between 2 grotesque-looking females who were pulling rotting flesh off of each other - it was gut churning but entertaining. The movie’s pace was too slow for my liking, and although I wanted to fast forward on numerous occasions, I did not. The good old fashioned and nasty gore, gross-out horror, and disgusting scenes were not enough for me to rate this movie anything above four because it was too boring for most of it.
