CABIN FEVER goes AMERICAN PIE on a NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD as college kids stay at a riverside cabin in the woods for a weekend of debauchery. Little do they know they are right next door to a lodge of beavers mutated by toxic waste into rabid zombie critters. Let the fur fly and the blood flow as sexual shenanigans get hampered by the rampaging rodents on a flesh-eating frenzy. A massive Tribeca hit, this fast, funny and smart high-concept B-movie revels in its horror parody styling, hilarious gore, cute practical creature special effects and self-aware performances. Especially when those humanoid zombeavers arise… Delivering deliciously deadpan humour, copious amounts of gleeful joy and a ton of racy beaver jokes, this is the guilty pleasure of the year. Don’t forget to stay through the end credits for the blooper reel and street crooner Nick Amado’s fabulous easy listening theme tune.·
