IFC Midnight Secure the Rights to the Remake of Cabin Fever

Posted on: September 10th, 2015

At the end of last year it was announced that Eli Roth’s Cabin Fever would be receiving a remake. To satisfy the needs of a new generation apparently we need to see an updated version of a horror film originally released in 2002. Was that really that long ago? Has Cabin Fever really aged that terribly? It all seems a bit bizarre in my opinion, but the maddest part of this announcement came with the news that Eli Roth’s original script would be used for the remake. So, what exactly is going to change? Surely, we’re going to have the same characters – albeit, played by different actors – going through the exact same events and story as the original film. I don’t get it. However, what do I know about what horror audiences want?

We can now let you know that IFC Midnight have secured the rights to this Cabin Fever re-imagining, so it probably won’t be long until we can see it for ourselves. I, for one, can’t wait. Eli Roth has described he was “blown away” by the remake, so it must be good. I also hope they remake the sequels with the exact same scripts, too. Travis Zariwny is directing and the film is set for a 2016 release. We’ll leave you with the trailer for the good, old-fashioned Cabin Fever to remind you just how damn good it was, back in the day.
