Zombie Film Fridays: Cabin Fever
Pancakes! What a great line to have in a Zombie movie! If you haven’t seen Cabin Fever and are looking for something fun and campy, you really should give this movie a chance.
An offbeat horror tale about a group of five college friends on vacation at a remote mountain cabin when one contracts a flesh-eating virus. As it spreads among the friends, their true feelings and personalities emerge as they struggle to survive the virus and each other.
My Rating: A-
Interesting Facts: Joey Kern was rushed to the hospital four separate times for different eye injuries, Peter Jackson stopped production on The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King three times to screen this movie for the entire crew (Jackson was so enthusiastic about the film he gave director Eli Roth publicity quotes), the “pancakes” scene was made up during filming after the director saw Matthew Helms practicing tae kwon do during a break (he discovered that Helms was a real-life black belt, so he decided to add the scene to give a chance for Helms to show what he could do), and it was also the most profitable horror film released in 2003.
