The movie adds up to a few good ideas and a lot of bad ones, wandering around in search of an organizing principle.

It's just a watery, undeservedly smug update of the low-budget, kids-stranded- in-the-sticks bloodfests of the 1970s and '80s.

Camping-trip slasher flick stomps wearily over ground that, however blood-soaked, we've all gone over before.

... disgusting and brainless ...

Mishmashes together every plot element from every slasher film you've ever seen, without adding anything new.

A loud, derivative grade-Z horror film of no particular distinction.

Roth and co-writer Randy Pearlstein choke up the occasional belly laugh in Cabin Fever, but they're so busy selling their jokes and their film-geek smarts they never figure out how to scare us.

A half-witted knock-off.

[Director] Roth hasn't an original creative bone in his entire body...

It's wince-inducing for sure, but then again so is a paper cut

Tenta desesperadamente criar uma aura cult ao estilo Evil Dead, mas consegue apenas ser patético em seu racismo, sua homofobia, sua misoginia e seu senso de humor adolescente.

Only the true aficionado of the horror/slasher/ deadly virus/ mutant-hillbilly movie will appreciate Cabin Fever at all, much less make any sense of it.

Deals more in 'arrrgh, gross!' moments than in genuine fright.

This movie may appeal to the youthful, midnight-madness crowd, but there isn't enough in it to bestow it with classic B-movie glory.

The movie is well shot and decently acted for its genre, but it lacks the distinctive vision to make it of value to anyone not already convinced of the inherent entertainment value in flying body parts.

Despite what you may have heard, this is not the rebirth of the horror film.

Les références aux classiques de l'horreur, l'humour franchement drôle à certains moments et tout le gore réussiront peut-être à ne pas faire regretter l'achat du billet.

If you take away the shocking makeup-effects work of KNB EFX Inc. there's not much there at all.

It's so by-the-numbers and clumsy that it will only appeal to that little sect that's managed to wear out their Evil Dead, Friday the 13th, Halloween and Nightmare on Elm Street DVDs.
