Directed by Eli Roth, Cabin Fever follows a group of college graduates who rent a cabin in the woods and begin to fall victim to a flesh-eating virus, which attracts the unwanted attention of the homicidal locals.

More gory than scary, Cabin Fever isn’t a horror masterpiece but some parts are incredibly enjoyable to watch. One of its best moments is found at the end of the film when one of the teenage protagonists (Joey Kern), who survives all the deadly shenanigans by simply hiding out with gallons of beer, celebrates his unexpected good fortune. He, however, is quickly shot to death when the police mistake him for one of the infected.
