*Taken from the back of the DVD*
~Jeff, Karen, Paul, Marcy and Bert embark on a vacation deep into the mountains. With the top down and the music up, they drive to a remote cabin to enjoy their last days of decadence after college. Then somebody gets sick. Karen's skin starts to bubble and burn as something grows inside her, tunneling beneath her flesh. As the others try to save her, they look at one another and realize that any one of them could be next. One by one they turn on each other and the rest of the town and realize that the disease is the least of their problems.~
-----All I have to say about this movie is one word, brutality. Unlike lots of people I have spoke to who recommended for me to stay away from this film, I trusted my gut and watched it, and I enjoyed it. From now on when I think of Cabin Fever, I will think Dead Alive. Cabin Fever is just as brutal and gross as Dead Alive ever was and has some comedic aspects as well (Probably why Peter Jackson was quoted on the front of the DVD).
The acting in this film is amazing and emerses you into the story with them. Also, the score was great with some of the horror-esk music that I have grown to love lingering over the casts every move. The only thing I did not get was the ending, but I guess I am not alone.
If you are not grossed out easy, take a gander at this film and it might just get you. If you like violence and brutal deaths then definately make it a point to check it out.
