  • Cabin Fever: Patient Zero 2014

    ★½ Watched 13 Oct, 2014

    Say what you will about the first two Cabin Fever movies, they were at least idiosyncratic and unique to the sensibilities of their directors. Eli Roth's original was enjoyable because of the gleeful manner in which he tortured his cast and audience. It's a movie that knows you're grossed out, and loves that. Ti West's studio butchered sequel is a mess, but underneath it you can see the John-Waters-style-sex-comedy/David-Cronenberg-style-body-horror film that the studio felt uncomfortable with and edited into oblivion.…

    ★★½ Rewatched 13 Oct, 2014

    This film is atrocious, and my ranking represents a clear-eyed, objective view of this film's merits. My personal, subjective rating would be around a 4.
