Five college buddies retreat to the woods for a little R & R and end up getting a horrific lesson in infectious disease in this low-budget shocker. Cabin Fever stars Rider Strong as the geeky Paul, who hopes to settle in around the campfire with his brash buds Jeff (Joey Kern) and Bert (James DeBello), and make the moves on the nubile-but-shy Karen (Jordan Ladd). Unfortunately, a wayward, forest-dwelling vagrant (Arie Verveen) stumbles into their lives, his skin badly desiccated by a mysterious virus. Fearing for their own lives, the quintet decide to do away with the man, with little success: He stumbles away from the campsite and into a nearby stream, where his disease quickly infects the local water supply. It isn't long before the oblivious co-eds get a taste of the man's illness, and in their desperation, each learns that he or she will stop at nothing to survive. Cabin Fever premiered at the 2002 Toronto Film Festival, where it was snapped up by Lions Gate for a fall 2003 release.~Michael Hastings

Modern day classic. I'm a big Eli Roth fan and his debut film Cabin Fever made an impact on the horror scene. One of the best films of that era of horror.
all these years later, this gonzo little movie still more than holds up. a highly entertaining love letter to all decades of horror, cabin fever is a guaranteed hoot of a night in with friends. the directors cut blu ray looks and sounds amazing, and the deleted additions are very welcome, though don't expect extra gore. shame losing the original dvds plethora of commentaries, but i guess you can understand why. at least they recorded an anniversary commentary and ported over a few old features.
This movie has a very solid storyline with loads of blood/gore in it. I enjoyed the movie when I first watched it back when it came and out still do to this day. It has a pretty good cast in it as well as some comic relief. If you’re into horror movies and haven’t seen it you really should give this one a chance.
So glad to finally own this movie. I remember seeing it in theaters and feeling so freaked out by what happens to the cast. It also has some strange yet humorous bits that make you go "WTF?", but are pretty funny. Also the bluray quality is really nice on my 46" screen. Has lots of good featurettes as well about behind the scenes, commentary,etc.
I have been a fan of this movie since its release. The movie has all the things a teenager from the 80's expected from a horror movie. The movie is very graphic as was expected in the 80's. Eli Roth really delivers the goods with this movie.
