The Gruesome Horror Remake You Need To Watch Before It Leaves Netflix

If you're looking for a super-twisted horror flick with an unexpectedly relevant plot, Netflix has you covered... but only for the next couple of days.

Netflix is stocked with plenty of horror movies, from beloved classics to new spins on the genre, giving horror fans plenty of choices for a good jump scare or brutal death scene any time they want. However, the fact is that Netflix adds and removes new titles every single month, which means that if you have certain movies waiting on your streaming queue, they very well might disappear before you get a chance to check them out.

Fans with a high tolerance for bloodshed and strong stomachs will definitely want to check out Cabin Fever, a remake of Eli Roth's 2002 horror movie of the same name produced by the horror auteur himself. If you're interested in Cabin Fever, though, you'd better act fast; the title will leave Netflix on December 4, 2020. Here's why you should watch Cabin Fever before it leaves Netflix.

Cabin Fever recreates one of Eli Roth's earlier films

Directed by Travis Zariwny under the stage name Travis Z, the 2016 reboot of Cabin Fever, reimagines Roth's 2002 bloodfest with an entirely new cast. However, Roth was still on hand for the remake; he served as executive producer and co-writer, along with fellow writer Randy Pearlstein.

In the film, five friends — Paul (Samuel Davis), Jeff (Matthew Daddario), Karen (Gage Golightly), Marcy (Nadine Crocker), and Bert (Dustin Ingram) — decide to take a camping trip to a remote cabin, but unbeknownst to them, a mysterious disease is spreading throughout the area. Before long, they encounter a hermit infected with the super-contagious disease, and it's only a matter of time before the group is forced to fight for their lives.

Unfortunately, the film didn't fare particularly well with critics or fans, who considered it unnecessary at best and gratuitous at worst. In fact, the film earned a 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with critics saying, "No need for a quarantine — enthusiasm for this inert remake is not contagious." However, while Cabin Fever is still on Netflix, you can decide for yourself, but you'll want to hurry. Cabin Fever leaves Netflix on December 4.
