If you like blood this is your movie
Now this isn't a great movie but maybe a good one.But I doubt you've seen so much blood ;it comes out in rivers from the people and even an animal or two in this film.The plot is nothing special---more silly sexed up teens meet some of the local weirdos while at the same time battle some sort of gross skin disease that is going around.

At least this movie holds your attention throughout.It is well worth a 2 buck DVD rental and I hear part two is already in production.My only complaint is that the locals didn't have that dirty greasy haired look that I like.They tended just to dress funny.I like that unwashed inbred look on my yokels.Anyway see this film unless you have something better to watch like "Deliverance" which is the king of 'dangerous inbreds' movies.

Trivia

During her sex scene with Rider Strong, Eli Roth wanted Cerina Vincent to be completely naked. But Vincent, who had previously played a student who never wore clothes in Not Another Teen Movie (2001), was concerned that over-exposing herself would lead to her being typecast as a 'nude scene chick', and refused to bare her rear in Cabin Fever. The standoff between the director and actress became so intense that Vincent informed Roth that if he truly wanted a naked ass in the scene, he would have to get another actress to play the role of Marcy. Eventually the two hammered out a compromise - Vincent would show one inch of her ass on film, no more, no less. When the scene was set to be filmed, Roth bought along a ruler and literally measured one inch of Vincent's butt crack. Bedsheets were then taped to Vincent's ass at the designated level before the sex scene was shot. Ironically, Vincent later volunteered to bare her breasts in a scene that didn't call for them. During the bathroom scene where she discovers the rashes on her back, the script had her wearing a robe, which she lowered when she turned her back to the mirror. But Vincent thought this scenario was too unrealistic and volunteered to do it topless.

Goofs

After washing her face in the washbasin, Marcy turns around to examine her back in the mirror, while clutching a hand towel. As she does so, the shot switches to a close-up. There is much more of the towel fanning out above her hands before the close-up than after.

Alternate Versions

Lions Gate cut 2 minutes from the film for the US Theatrical Release. However, the uncut version did play at a few festivals before Lions Gate bought it. This version was released in North America on Blu-ray on February 10, 2016. A full list of scenes cut are:

  • The scene where they are in the shop in the beginning is removed from the "uncut" version and is replaced with an extended scene of them driving the truck through the woods. Then they stop when Burt says he left something back at the store and they have a longer conversation about the map.
  • The scene of Rider Strong going behind the building to wash his hands after Dennis's bite and he pets the stray dogs is removed from the "uncut" version.
  • A different angle of Jordan Ladd's character Karen swimming away after the "kiss" scene on the dock with Rider Strong.
  • When it is discovered that Karen has the disease during an intimate scene, there is an additional scene that follows the "Don't...Leave...Me!" where Burt comes into the room and yells at her about how the truck isn't ready yet, and they have to finish cleaning up the bum's blood.
  • An extended scene of everyone arguing around the fireplace when Burt makes a joke about his burnt marshmallow.
  • A scene of Burt sitting outside guarding the shed with his shot gun. This immediately follows when they hear the dog trying to get Karen in the shed and they shoot a bullet and tell Karen that they will stay outside with her to keep the dog away.
  • The gunshot to Burt's head in the cabin is bloodier. In the "R" rated version it cuts away quick and only shows the aftermath from a difficult-to-see angle.
  • An additional scene where Rider Strong grabs the long-haired hick after the attack and drags him down to the cellar. He yells at the hick as he throws him down there and says "When they get here, tell them I didn't do it!", then slams the door.
  • The human-bonfire scene when they say "We got another one in the basement" immediately goes to a shot of the cellar door opening from the inside, then a bunch of shotguns appear and start shooting like crazy. We see blood all over the walls. Then they pour gasoline and one cop lights a match and cellar goes up in flames followed by more shots of blood and guts on the walls, ceiling, and floor.
  • The end is switched around a little. Instead of just the cops drinking the contaminated lemonade followed by a country song with the townspeople, the whole entire town shows up and has a cup. There is additional dialog among the townspeople, different shots, and it shows the FDA man walking around more testing and the Water supply truck is in view longer.
