With a set inspired by the Evil Dead series, a soundtrack inspired by that of Twin Peaks, and a cast inspired by the assholes I went to high school with, Cabin Fever is almost a fun watch, but ends up gross and dated. This movie is something of a meeting place for child actors, a lot of the cast is recognizable but I couldn’t put my finger on why, but aha! Child actors, all grown up. A group of early 20 somethings go to a cabin for vacation, end up on the menu for some flesh eating bacteria. This movie isn’t scary - it’s gross. I am not a big fan of body horror. Fifteen years ago, this might have been a pretty wild watch, but I think we can all move on with our lives and never watch this again.
