Cabin Fever (2002)

An American horror comedy directed by Eli Roth.
A group of college students are vacationing at a cabin in the woods. They encounter a sick man whom they set on fire. He falls into the water supply and they get sick.
This is pretty standard for the horror genre. I thought it was unoriginal and banal. The plot had a few unexpected twists, but was uninspired in general. The characters were so stereotypical and shallow that some of them could have been animatronic and nobody would have known. Of all the humor in this, the only funny joke was a guy swallowing a harmonica. The video was over-done in a cheesy way that was almost entertaining. The audio was decent and I could hear everything at the proper levels. Overall, the modern equivalent of cheesy '80s horror, but with less style and originality. I rate it o.k.
