Cabin Fever Movie Image Released. What a strange time to be alive. A horror film by Eli Roth is already being remade. I shouldn’t be too surprised, really, since everything under the sun is fair game, as long as there’s name recognition of the brand. In any case, Roth’s first film, Cabin Fever, is getting remade, and the film hits theatres (or VOD) this very year.
Cabin Fever got me into Eli Roth. I loved his excitement, palpable from the film, his audio commentary, and the bonus features on the DVD release. This was a young guy, a film student from NYU who loved all the same shit I loved. I, too, loved Cannibal movies, Italian schlock, and Euro-thrillers. This was a guy who made a movie straight out of film school, hooked up with Tarantino, and now lived in the Hollywood hills, chilling poolside with his (my) idols. His enthusiasm, success, and love for horror films was infectious – like the virus in Cabin Fever.
So, now, there’s a remake. I can’t see this being of any interest whatsoever, for anyone, unless – a premise executed effectively works for anyone. It’s a basic story, after all – a group of friends is secluded in a cabin, scared of a virus they’re trying to ward off. Slowly and surely, however, the survival rate drops down dramatically. This same premise could probably be remade once a year, and if done effectively, would be worth watching annually. So, I suppose, this could, technically, work well. Forgive me, though, if I have little to no faith.
In any case, here’s the first movie still. It depicts the familiar scene in which the infected stranger warns the newcomers of disease.
Cabin Fever‘s plot synopsis: “A group of five friends are terrorized at their getaway cabin. A remake of the 2002 film, ‘Cabin Fever’.”
