Hello, and welcome to day three of the A to Z Challenge.
Today’s letter is C, and our word today is caboched. The definition is: showing the full face, but nothing of the neck; the head of a beast in armorial bearing. Please to enjoy the following image example:
And there you have it.
Today’s “C” movie is Cabin Fever.
Released in 2003, this comedy/horror film has the following plot: Five college graduates rent a remote mountain cabin in the woods and begin to fall victim to a horrifying flesh-eating virus, which attracts the unwanted attention of the homicidal locals. As it spreads among the friends, their true personalities emerge as they struggle to survive the virus, the homicidal locals, and each other. Stars Rider Strong, Jordan Ladd, James DeBello, Cerina Vincent and Joey Kern. This movie had the lowest budget of any Lion’s Gate Film released in 2003 ($1.5 million) and was their highest grossing film of 2003 ($22 million). It was also the most profitable horror film released in 2003. Watch all the way to the end (I can’t remember if it is before, after, or during the credits) to see Matthew Helms do some great stuff with a stick.
Again, nothing Oscar worthy happening here, but if you’re in the mood for some gore and a bit of dark humor, this would fit the bill.
