  • Alex Winter's FEVER tells the moody, haunting story of an urban-dwelling twentysomething who begins to show signs of physical and mental deterioration when faced with the suffocating pressure of living alone in New York City. Nick Parker (Henry Thomas), a struggling artist, pays the bills by teaching drawing to the elderly. Living in a squalid Brooklyn tenement, Nick avoids contact with his family, including his sister Charlotte (Teri Hatcher). When his landlord is discovered murdered one morning, Nick receives a visit from Detective Glass (Bill Duke), whom he is unable to help. Around this time, a mysterious new tenant moves into the upstairs apartment. The man, Will (David O'Hara), disturbs Nick with his matter-of-fact attitude and hidden past. As Nick's health becomes more and more fragile, rendering him pale, frazzled, and disoriented, the realization that he has once again begun to sleepwalk disturbs him even more, triggering an ultimate understanding that just might destroy him. Winter, working hand in hand with cinematographer Joe DeSalvo (ALL OVER ME, JOHNNY SUEDE), creates a stylish, claustrophobic world that is revealed strictly from Nick's scattered point of view. In maintaining this distorted vision, Winter allows the audience to truly view the story through Nick's muddled eyes, resulting in an eerie, dark thriller.
