    Much of the credit must go towards the makeup crew. It's a Fangoria funhouse up in here: Cabin Fever: Patient Zero has some of the most disturbing, disgusting gore effects of all-time. This is a movie made by people who have studied some of the worst injuries known to man.

    Vincent Guastini's makeup effects are the star here, a refreshing change from the inky CGI morphing of too much modern horror.

    A pandemic thriller infected with horror-film clichés, Cabin Fever: Patient Zero ditches the nasty allegory of Eli Roth’s original and Ti West’s studio-butchered first sequel for far duller, standard-issue conventions.

    The first act of Cabin Fever: Patient Zero is so defiantly stupid that I imagine most who rent it or struggle through it in a theater won’t care that there’s actually some material in the final act that clicks, mostly due to some incredibly strong makeup work.

    Less methodical and witty than its predecessors, Patient Zero often turns its infected characters into mindless, lurching zombies.

    This is less a movie than a dutiful renewal of a recognizable title's licensing rights.

    [A] slack, dumb prequel.
