Genre: Horror

Audience: Teenagers and adults REVIEWER:
Dr. Tom Snyder CABIN FEVER is
a gross horror flick about
several college students who
rent a cabin in the woods for
a wild weekend. What they
don’t know is that a
flesh-eating virus from
polluted water has infected
the area. An infected hermit
attacks them and one of the
students starts showing signs
of the infection. After much
arguing, they isolate her, but
dissension continues among the
group when all their efforts
to get help fail. Their
situation gets increasingly
desperate until the movie’s
violent, gruesome, distasteful
finish. CABIN FEVER is a
thoroughly unappetizing horror
movie. It doesn’t even have
any of the wit and humor of
the old NIGHT OF THE LIVING
DEAD movies, which it most
closely resembles. Even fans
of the horror genre may find
this movie unappealing. One
can only hope. Furthermore,
the movie takes a Romantic,
pro-environmentalist,
over-the-top approach to its
material. Human society
completely pollutes nature, it
suggests, and there may only
be hope when all the people
are dead. Of course, the real
pollution is the mental and
spiritual pollution that comes
from watching this story play
out. The best part is the end,
when it comes to a
stop. Please address your

Content:

(RoRoRo, EEE, PCPC, AbAb, LLL, VVV, SS, NN, AA, DD, MM) Very strong Romantic worldview with a very strong environmentalist message and politically correct stereotypes of rural people who speak with Southern accents, and young man’s Good Samaritan attempts fail; about 137 mostly strong obscenities, eight strong profanities, 10 light profanities, racial epithet used twice (once as a joke), and people vomit blood several times; extremely strong violence and gore includes gross human and animal corpses with bones showing through bleeding skin, point blank shootings, skin tears off people, and vicious dog attacks; depicted fornication; upper male and female nudity; alcohol use and drunkenness; smoking and marijuana use; and, young police officer parties on the job, sleazy college students, and selfishness.
