Cabin Fever
from Film Forum, 09/18/03

In Cabin Fever, some college students are attacked by a flesh-destroying virus during their weekend vacation in a cabin deep in the woods. And sure enough, the camera captures the whole gory mess.

This is the third movie this year to show people running from a monstrous affliction. Dreamcatcher had a nasty alien that entered people's bodies and provoked a great deal of ugly havoc … including terrible reviews. 28 Days Later, however, won raves with its tale of a virus that turned London into a city of zombies. Cabin Fever? Christian critics wish it would disintegrate under the influence of its own disease.

Loren Eaton (Focus on the Family) calls it "Vile. Gruesome. Exploitative. Mean-spirited. And just plain gross."

Movieguide's reviewer calls it "a thoroughly unappetizing horror movie. Even fans of the horror genre may find this movie unappealing. One can only hope." The critic also condemns the movie for being "pro-environmentalist." (So, we should hope for horror movies that promote pollution?)
