Fever is infected with the most common scary-movie plot of them all: A group of college coeds go into the woods for a weekend of beer drinking and bump-and-grinding, and, one by one, they meet an untimely deaths. But what makes this gross-out number stand out from the menacing movie masses is not that it's shot with gritty, low-budget cinematography but that it's freakin' nasty.
It seems all of the money was spent on fake blood. When a flesh-eating skin disease strikes a crew of kids in the middle of nowhere, they start bleeding to death and seeing red with one another. While there are plenty of unbelievable characters and actions, the mere idea of a flesh-eating disease, (based on the writer-director's own experience with an unidentified bacteria) is enough to make your skin crawl for days afterward. Oh, and it will haunt you in your sleep, too. When was the last time a horror flick gave so much?
