Cabin Fever 3: Patient Zero (2014)

logoDirector: Kaare Andrews

Writer: Jake Wade Wall (Screenplay)

Starring: Sean Astin, Currie Graham, Ryan Donowho, Brando Eaton, Jillian Murray, Mitch Ryan, Solly Duran, Lydia Hearst, Claudette Lali

 

Plot: A group of friends think they’re going to the perfect spot for a bachelor party; a secluded private island. They quickly learn the island is not as private as they thought. The island is home to a lab thought to be empty, but in actuality a deadly, extremely fast acting, flesh eating virus has just escaped containment. Now everyone on the island has to fight not only to survive the outbreak, but also to survive each other.

 

Verdict: Origin Of Cabin Fever Virus

 

Story: Being the third in the series we know all about what the virus does, and how it is spread. This take out the explanation levels need in the film. We focus on the usual group of young people have a fun weekend, the drinking, drugs and sex. On the more interesting side of the story we follow a doctor who has captured an immune patient and is trying to figure out a cure. This is the strong point of the film as we see how he gets tested against his will while not being aloud contact with the outside world. The two stories play out, side by side before coming together for the conclusion which as always is a form of twist ending. It comes off as a usual franchise film because it isn’t the same level as the original but gives a few more answers than the original. (6/10)

 

Actor Review

 

Sean Astin: Porter the immune patient who gets locked away while a doctor tries to find a cure, he doesn’t play along and tries to break out but spreading the virus onto other people. Good performance as a man captured against his will. (7/10)

Currie Graham: Dr Edwards the man trying to find a cure, but is he trying to find the cure to make himself the famous doctor who cured the virus which has taken so many lives. If you ever want to see a traditional doctor who is out for his own good this is what you call the standard for that. (5/10)

Ryan Donowho: Dobbs best friend of Marcus who ends up going looking around the island with Marcus looking for help after the virus starts to affect their friends. Typical friend performance who is there to be a disposable character. (5/10)

Brando Eaton: Josh Marcus’ brother who get infected by the virus and tries to find a help while the rest have gone their way, he wants to save his girlfriend. Another typical group performance designed to be disposable. (4/10)

 

Jillian Murray: Penny Josh’ girlfriend who is the first to get infected by the virus, she also has connection with everyone in the group. She goes through the most including a fight with another infected person that really tests the special effects. Good performance as the victim who suffers the most. (6/10)

 

Mitch Ryan: Marcus the bachelor who reluctantly agrees to go on the trip because he is growing out of the party ways. He ends up leading the group in their fight for survival. Good performance as the unlikely leader. (7/10)

Director Review: Kaare Andrews – Good direction to help the franchise continue, with some very good special effects scenes. (7/10)

 

Horror: The virus being flesh eating works to add plenty horror. (8/10)

Thriller: Doesn’t really have too much suspense, but I feel the film idea isn’t designed for suspense. (4/10)

Settings: Stuck on an Island in the middle of nowhere makes a great setting for a horror film and the quarantine idea. (9/10)
Special Effects
: Great special effects used to create the effects of the virus. (9/10)

Suggestion: This is one for all the horror fans, you should check out the whole franchise and this is a welcome addition. (Horror Fans Watch)

 

Best Part: The Nurse vs Penny great show of special effects.

Worst Part: The group is very genetic and boring characters.

Kill Of The Film: A guard tries to stop Dobbs.

Believability: This is a very real outcome of a virus potentially out breaking. (9/10)

Chances of Tears: No (0/10)

Chances of Sequel: Still open for more.

Post Credits Scene: Yes

 

Oscar Chances: No

Runtime: 1 Hour 31 Minutes

 

Overall: Let The Virus Spread
