Travis Zariwny’s Cabin Fever is looking for love this February.
Bloody Disgusting has scored the first official image from IFC Midnight’s Cabin Fever, a remake of Eli Roth’s 2002 film of the same name, starring Gage Golightly, Matthew Daddario, Samuel Davis, Nadine Crocker, and Dustin Ingram.
In addition, I’ve been able to confirm a limited theatrical, VOD and Digital HD release on February 12, 2016.
We’re working to confirm this, although we’re told this is correct.
“Cabin Fever follows a group of five college graduates who rent a cabin in the woods. Soon, all hell breaks loose, as the group falls victim to a flesh-eating virus that attracts the unwanted attention of the homicidal locals.”
Travis Z’s take is from a screenplay by Eli Roth & Randy Pearlstein (based on a story by Roth).
“It was a great opportunity to recreate an iconic film for a new generation of horror fans,” said Travis Z when the acquisition was announced. “I am a die hard fan of horror films and the king of horror Eli Roth trusted me to re-imagine his film. I was not going to fail.”
Back in March Roth said he was “blown away” by the remake.
The film was produced by Evan Astrowsky, Christopher Lemole and Tim Zajaros, and was executive produced by Roth, Cassian Elwes, Jerry Fruchtman, Peter Fruchtman and Ike and Jaclyn Suri.
