Fever is a 1989 Australian erotic thriller film about an Australian policeman who finds a suitcase full of money, and the course of events which unfold when he decides to keep it. The film was directed by Craig Lahiff, and stars Bill Hunter, Gary Sweet, and Mary Regan.
Sergeant Jack Wells, a tough country cop, discovers a bag of cash after a shoot out. He decides to keep the money so he and his wife Leanne can start a new life. However Leanne has a lover.
The movie was the second of three low budget thrillers Craig Lahiff made in succession. It was made with the assistance of the South Australian Film and Television Financing Fund.
The film was meant to be shot in Port Pirie but the budget did not stretch to location shooting so it was filmed Port Adelaide.
