IFC Midnight has released a trailer for producer Eli Roth’s remake of his gory 2002 classic Cabin Fever. Travis Zariwny helms the film from Cabin Fever writer Randy Pearlstein’s original script. While the plot remains the same, producers stress the kills are new and “ingenious.”
Cabin Fever follows a group of friends as they fall victim to a disgusting flesh-eating virus while vacationing in an isolated cabin in the woods. “Teen Wolf” star Gage Golightly toplines the film and co-stars with Louise Linton (The Echo), Dustin Ingram (Paranormal Activity 3) and Nadine Crocker (Deadgirl).
Trailer looks every bit as fun as the original Cabin Fever and touches on its most memorably gruesome moments, making us curious to see how more outrageous the new stuff will be. As a direct-to-video franchises, it’s one of the best – Patient Zero especially exceptional – so we’re feeling good about this.
Cabin Fever strikes Feb. 12 in limited theatrical release and VOD.
