BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
Twist in the plot, this is a review for the new one! "While visiting their getaway cabin, five friends succumb to a flesh-eating disease." I like the first one, and shock horror, without giving too much away as this is only the start of this review, I liked this one...
Cabin Fever, as in the new one, is entertaining, and it's fun, and, please, no one strike me down, I would say it's almost as good as the original. I see Cabin Fever as a fun little number, and the remake does exactly that. Not much of a storyline, a cabin, and a flesh eating skin virus - what more could you want?! The new one does that to a T, some might say they didn't feel this was needed as there was nothing wrong with the old one, but I don't see anything wrong with it. The new one isn't trying to take over from the old one at all, just maybe standing side by side with it instead...
One thing about me is I love gore, and another thing about me is, I don't often hate remakes. You know why? Because remakes tend to turn the gore up to 11 and also it tends to be more realistic. Cabin Fever doesn't really need this treatment as it is a film made by Eli Roth, but still, it's great. It obviously takes its gore inspiration from the first one and it does it well, very well. I was happy. Nothing much added from the original gore wise but nothing lost.
As much as people hate remakes, this one is not that bad, I have seen worse, way worse. It doesn't really add anything to the story, but it doesn't lose anything. It's a simple little film and has some good but stereotypical characters that are nice to watch. It's simple! I like both the films, I have no complaints.
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
