Cabin Fever

By

Source: Catholic News Service

Campy gorefest about five oversexed college slackers trapped in a remote woodland cabin who find themselves pitted against each other when some of their number become infected with a virulent flesh-eating virus. Playing on viewers' growing unease over biological pathogens, director Eli Roth raises thought-provoking questions about the way we treat those ostracized by society, but any serious discussion is cut short by the film's formulaic premise and predictable reliance on blood, beer and babes. Excessive gory violence, sexual encounters with nudity, recurring drug abuse, as well as pervasive rough and crude sexual language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.

John Kanty: John was a country lad who made good in the big city and the big university of Kraków, Poland. After brilliant studies he was ordained a priest and became a professor of theology. The inevitable opposition which saints encounter led to his being ousted by rivals and sent to be a parish priest at Olkusz. An extremely humble man, he did his best, but his best was not to the liking of his parishioners. Besides, he was afraid of the responsibilities of his position. But in the end he won his people’s hearts. After some time he returned to Kraków and taught Scripture for the remainder of his life. 
<p>He was a serious man, and humble, but known to all the poor of Kraków for his kindness. His goods and his money were always at their disposal, and time and again they took advantage of him. He kept only the money and clothes absolutely needed to support himself. He slept little, and then on the floor, ate sparingly, and took no meat. He made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, hoping to be martyred by the Turks. He made four pilgrimages to Rome, carrying his luggage on his back. When he was warned to look after his health, he was quick to point out that, for all their austerity, the fathers of the desert lived remarkably long lives.</p> American Catholic Blog If we can see the face of God in the child whose birth we celebrate, then we will see the face of God in the man whose death has set us free, whose blood inebriates our hearts and causes them to sing, glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.
