CABIN FEVER

USA, 2002 (MIFF 2003, International Panorama)

Director: Eli Roth

An isolated cabin retreat, six cocksure teenagers, a highly-infectious disease, crazed hillbillies—the perfect ingredients for a slasher hybrid marked by its knife-edge wit and knife-wielding characters. Director Eli Roth got his start assisting David Lynch with the set-up of his amazing website; the Lynch connection to the film is furthered with a haunting score by Angelo Badalamenti.
