Cabin Fever (2002)

A group of college kids decides to take a nice little break from the college grind by going to a cabin in the middle of nowhere. Little do they know that an infectious disease is starting to spread in the area and shit’s about to get real ugly.

This is Eli Roth’s first movie and while this seems like an obvious premise that has been done too many times to count, what makes it different is the way it’s delivered. The characters and dialogue are both fresh and fun. In particular, the sheriff’s deputy is hilarious and there are a couple of scenes with a weird kid that add some quirkiness to the mix.

The cast includes Rider Strong, James DeBello, and Joey Kern. There is so much blood and gooey guts. It’s nasty. All in all, it’s a fun time to be had.
