Cabin Fever 2016 Review…

Cabin Fever is remake of the 202 film of the same name. Like the original it’s about a group of twenty-somethings who decide to vacation at a cabin in the woods. But, there’s a catch, there’s no psycho killer or monster. Instead they face off against a deadly skin eating bacteria.

I am not sure why this movie was made? It doesn’t add anything to the original story. It’s not scary, the gore doesn’t succeed in being as disturbing as in the first film. As I watched this film, the only thing I liked about it was that it had some strong female characters. It’s a well made movie, the acting is fine, the special effects are decent. But overall this was just a big waste of time. It took a fairly descent horror movie and remade into a stunning pile of crap which is a shame because the actors were great. Sadly, great acting can’t save a stagnant story. And, to top it all off, one of the characters is such a dumbass, so fucking stupid, that I couldn’t wait for his painful death to arrive. And, the fact that the rest of the people were actually friends with this dumbass, made me loose interest in the rest of them. It’s hard to care about the characters in a film when there’s very little to like about them.

If your looking for some well made gore and some gross-out scenes give this movie a go. Check it out on Amazon. But, if you’re looking for a good horror movie, skip it or watch the original.
