This is one that I really have not understood since it was announced but it appears as if the deed is done and the remake of Cabin Fever is ready to assault audiences and IFC Midnight has released a trailer to make sure we know it’s on its way.
When the synopsis begins with “This story is familiar”, I think you can kind of figure out where this one is heading.
Yep, pretty much a shot for shot remake from what that shows us. Here’s that synopsis I referenced above:
“This story is familiar: fresh out of college, a group of five friends retreat to a remote cabin in the woods for one last week of partying- only to become snacks for a gruesome, flesh-eating virus. What’s surprising are the ingenious new deaths, which offer a fresh spin on a horror-comedy milestone.”
Gage Golightly, Dustin Ingram, Nadine Crocker, Matthew Daddario & Samuel Davis all star. Eli Roth has an Executive Producer credit.
IFC Midnight is rolling things out in LA and NY on Feb. 12th. I’m just kind of assuming a VOD roll-out will be following shortly.
