The film centers around five recent college graduates, Jeff, Karen, Paul, Marcy and Bert, who trek to a remote cabin deep in the woods for some rest and relaxation with some promiscuous behavior and copious amounts of alcohol. But before they know it the campers are also visited by a stoner camper, Justin (aka Grim), who has a large dog named Doctor Mambo. Bert goes hunting, and accidentally shoots a drifter in the woods. Although not apparently seriously injured, he is extremely ill with some unknown disease, and Bert leaves him to die. The man later turns up at the cabin, even sicker, asking for their help and seeking medical attention, but when he recognizes Bert, the group panics and turn him away without assistance. He attempts to steal their truck and in the scuffle Paul and Marcy accidentally set him on fire and he runs into the woods where he falls into the cabin's water supply, which is now infected. It isn't long before the oblivious graduates get a taste of the man's illness, and in their desperation, each learns that he or she will stop at nothing to survive. Cabin Fever picked up Best Make-Up at the Catalonian Film Festival.
