What movie was that...?

Cabin Fever

directed by Eli Roth

While I am not a fan of Roth’s torture horror Hostel films, I am a fan of his skin peeling, psycho bacteria monster gem, Cabin Fever. Roth got the idea for his opus when he contracted flesh-eating bacteria that resulted, one morning, in his shaving off some of his face. Gross? Yes, it is, but it’s also a campy, suspenseful and clever addition to the genre. As is the case with The Blair Witch Project, if you can make a scary movie without even having a villain you can see, then you must be onto something. But, I suppose I will watch anything that has a crazy hillbilly kid doing karate and yelling “pancakes!”
