I think this movie has a lot more to offer than you might expect. "On the surface, Cabin Fever might seem like just another ripoff of the Michigan-made cult class The Evil Dead," writes critic John Monaghan of the Detroit Free Press, "but it has a style and sense of humor entirely its own." Plenty of suspense and gore, Roth definitely proved himself with this movie. If you are familiar with the horror genre, you will notice and appreciate the nods to the masters like Wes Craven and George Romero. This is a well-written, clever, and bloody film that is every bit as infectious and gross as the virus it depicts.
Oh, and just a little word of advice - don't mess with Dennis and his pancakes.
