Beware of flesh-eating viruses in the woods.
WHY WE PICKED IT: Horror director Eli Roth’s debut pays loving, bloody homage to genre classics ‘The Evil Dead’ and ‘The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.’
Five college friends head to a remote cabin in the woods to blow off some steam when their celebrations are interrupted by a hermit dripping in blood and begging for help. Terrified, they refuse – but not before the first of them becomes infected with a horrible virus that violently eats its victims from the inside out.
