“Cabin Fever: Unrated Director’s Cut” on Blu-ray

Eli Roth’s 2002 directorial debut, “Cabin Fever,” was just released on Blu-ray Tuesday.

If you haven’t seen the original film, it’s pretty gruesome to begin with.  However, in an online article from Paste Magazine, Roth says not to expect only more violence and nothing else on the new unrated directors cut. He promises that “the movie as an experience is much more fun.”

In a nutshell, the film follows five college students who head out to a cabin in the woods for spring break. Soon after arriving, one of them gets infected with a flesh eating disease from a crazy local.  I bet you can guess what happens from there, but I wouldn’t want to spoil anything for you…

  1. It works as a gory homage to the old 80’s horror classics, but doesn’t work when it tries too hard for comedy, and random satire. Check out my review when you can!

  2. Nice review! It works because it’s campy and that’s what Roth was going for. What doesn’t work is “Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever,” directed by Ti West. What an insult to film…
