It tries to take itself seriously and it fails miserably. And this remake was very, very unnecessary in every aspect. The characters die in the sane order as they did in the original. However, that's not saying much, as they're both pretty shitty. This brand spanking 2016 version had so much potential and even the Cabin Fever series isn't a talked about franchise, this film still had potential but it's just an extremely lazy remake. While not a shot-for-shot remake the angles and cinematography are different , this remake uses the same script as the 2002 original with slight alterations. The remake, admittedly working with Roth's original script, keeps a lot of that flair and adds a few nice touches of its own.
Later that night, the infected hermit comes to the cabin in search of help. The blood n gore effects seem to be up higher than the original. I was very captivated of it. Just a bunch of teens dying in various gory ways although i can tell there will be an unrated version as some scenes were obviously cut. Nothing attempts to sell this more than the overly-ambitious music score, which is so epic at times that it feels like it belongs in a big-scale war movie. Zariwny also discussed and incorporated aspects that Roth wanted to include in the original but wasn't able to. The acting in this remake is atrocious and the dialogue is even worse.
It has been 14 years since the original Eli Roth gore-fest and some of the audiences that this is aimed at were toddlers at the time. However, Paul convinces Winston to let him go instead. Honesty, I have seen found-footage films with better acting than what some of these no-talents pulled off. In , it was released on April 28, 2016. I didn't enjoy this remake at all it's nothing, but watching the same movie you already seen. The whole team, apart from Karen, tends to make some sort of pact of consuming just draught beer along the few days with no realizing the place that the deceased is. Man I really had to pull myself together to watch this movie until the end credits.
The group seem very hesitant about letting him join, but warm up to him after he shares marijuana with them, before he abruptly leaves with his dog. Fearful of contagion, the other four friends lock Karen in the boat shed outside and check each other for signs of infection. Although i could live with these things, they can be kind a laughable in some movies, but what i don't understand is why every single character in this movie act like a moron in any given situation? Hell, even the gore is lame. There's something about low budget horror films that I like and Cabin Fever had that. Despite this seemingly pointless exercise, I was prepared to give it a chance and not hate it for failing to aspire to anything original. But everything from the acting to the gore has taken a considerable hit with this remake as to effectively make it Cabin Fever-lite.
Startled by the hermit, Bert accidentally shoots him, but his concern turns to fear when Bert sees that his skin shows signs of a deadly infection. Unable to finish the job of splitting her face with a shovel, Paul sets the shed on fire and burns Karen alive. People including myself would choose the second one even though the other 3 films are corny but not lazy like this is. Is it normal to set a guy on fire when he ask for help? Bert appears infected and the store owner recruits his friends to help him chase down Bert. The thing is, is that claustrophobic horrors can actually be quite good but director Travis Z Z for Zariwny goes to far in trying to make this a horror not convincingly and not enough focusing on the claustrophobic feeling. The college friends John, Karen, Bert, Marcy and Jason rent a good singled out log home within the woodlands to pay every week collectively.
More gore, and even more stupidity, but these types of movies aren't ever going to be logical. Especially since the 2002 movie was quite alright. Paul rents a cabin in the woods to vacation with Karen, Bert, Jeff and Marcy. As for positives, there aren't many. Overall, this is a shallow remake of a bad, low budget horror film from 2002. Karen discovers that the lower part of her body is infected by the flesh-eating virus. The characters are portrayed as having at least half a brain on their shoulders at the start, but that soon disappears.
Paul escapes in Tommy's truck, but crashes it into a tree. No it's humorless and quite frankly just cheesy and there are some really cheesy films out there all of which are better. It's everything you seen in the original just with different actors in these scenes. Paul returns to the boat shed where Karen begs him to kill her. The characters are very unimportant to this movie or at least they felt like it. The story is almost identical, with a few minor variations. The original Cabin Fever was a pretty bad movie but I wouldn't even recommend this film to Eli Roth fans, as it is a pretty pointless remake.
Winston receives a radio call from the sheriff announcing to shoot Paul on sight. The entire film is permeated with a depressing lack of passion on or off camera. Paul succumbs to infection and drops dead in the woods as the boy, Dennis, peers at him from around a tree. It would be better to watch the first one again because this one copies every word from the original script, and that's not to say it's a bad thing it's just that this one is just so bad. Nearly all the scenes of the original are redone shot-for-shot, but they're handled in a much messier manner.
