Cabin Fever: Patient Zero (2014)



What a day. Between crazy traffic, a dismal attempt at a nap, and one miserable homework assignment in my writing class, I am ready to hang it up. Before I can do that though, I must venture into the blog, and finish what I had planned. Next up, the 2014 prequel Cabin Fever: Patient Zero.


Plot/ When a group of friends enjoying a bachelor cruise in the Caribbean stumble upon a research facility on a remote island, a deadly virus is unleashed. The group must find a way to survive before the flesh-eating virus consumes them all.


Every virus has an origin (like Ebola and the CDC), and in this installment of the Cabin Fever franchise, we can see the beginnings of one of the most grotesque virus to scroll across my screen. While this flick lacks a huge budget, it does not disappoint with the amount of violence and gore. Unfortunately, that budget impacts a lot more. The acting is so-so; the scripting uneven, the lighting sporadic, and there is an overall cardboard feel to all of the characters. In the end, it was definitely better than I expected, but it definitely did not come close to matching the awesomeness of the original. Sure, it is entertaining and has some positives, but it leaves no lasting impression inside your head. Unless you have no other selection, stay away.
