Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


A guilty pleasure for all gluttons for gore and those with a sick sense of humor, we discuss Eli Roth’s twisted cult classic “Cabin Fever”.

We ran a poll on social media platforms to see which film we would look at in our “Battle of 2002” edition. Would it be Queen of the Damned, Teenage Caveman, or Cabin Fever? In the end, there was one clear winner — a film many argue is Eli Roth’s best, Cabin Fever.

Alongside NHE host Scott Murphy, we have a regular favorite on the show, writer/director/producer Michael Peterson.

Over the course of the episode, the pair talk about the film’s long production history, discuss whether Eli Roth is the most divisive director in horror, and debate whether this is a super dudebro film or if it’s trying to satirize dudebro-ism.

Plus we talk about the movie’s gore effects, how the film might be built for YouTube, and, of course, PANCAKES!

You can watch Cabin Fever right now on Epix or rent it on most VOD platforms.
