Cabin Fever: Patient Zero (2014)
" This Is why the water went bad"
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 consumes them all.
Let me begin by saying I'm a big fan of Eli Roth's cult classic Cabin Fever that started this whole thing off. when the sequel came out I was thrilled about a sequel but after seeing that movie, I was highly disappointed where they took things, so when I heard about this next installment I wasn't really looking forward to another movie thanks to the second movie.
After sometime of its released I decided to give in a finally sit down and watch this movie to see if I would enjoy it or further be disappointed by the Cabin Fever sequels.
After a few days have passed since viewing Cabin Fever : Patient Zero I admit I enjoyed it way more then the second movie. Patient Zero has a much darker tone then the first two movie which is a contrast but at the same time refreshing but it still has the black comedy moments that the first movie had a few stand out examples is when one of the friends goes down on his girlfriend and comes up with blood all over his face (every guy and even some girls worst nightmare during sex) and another which is a big highlight being death by a huge black dildo LOL
The acting here is good with the exception of maybe one or two characters but that's typical in these type of horror movies, Sean Astin (The Goonies, Lord of The Rings trilogy, The Strain) as Porter aka Patient Zero does probably some of his best stuff here with how he plays the role. I guess he's finding a new niche in the horror genre now since his Lord of The Rings big Hollywood days are gone.
Cabin Fever: Patient Zero is basically what the direct sequel should've been with how it further moves the flesh eating virus story along and also introduces something new to the franchise as well.
It wouldn't be Cabin Fever with out the gore fxs and this movie delivers that in big ways and every horror fan would appreciate that. with how this movie ends hopefully there is another sequel that follows the events of this movie since this is supposed to be a prequel to the first and could lead into how the events of the first movie came about.
