Prepare To Catch More Cabin Fever
Third and fourth infections on the way

Prepare To Catch More Cabin Fever

You might have thought that the second film had killed the franchise, but steel yourselves for at least two further doses of necrotising fasciitis: Cabin Fevers 3 and 4 are on their way, and will shoot back-to-back next year.

The original Cabin Fever was the debut of one Eli Roth, way back in the pre-Hostel days of 2002. A cabin-in-the-woods (hence the name) horror ick-fest, it had the neat hook of a flesh-eating virus instead of a slasher killing its collection of pretty teens. Cabin Fever 2: Spring Break belatedly arrived last year. That one was directed by House Of The Devil's Ti West, although he disowned it and unsuccessfully asked to have his name removed from it following post-production producer interference.

That hasn't dissuaded the Beverly Hills-based Indomina Group from picking up the rights, however. "We see tremendous potential with the Cabin Fever franchise," says Indomina's Singh Mann. "We are committing to two new Cabin Fever films because there is a real demand from a devout fanbase." Movie producers, unlike historians, are not required to back up their statements with reliable source material.

Cabin Fever: Patient Zero is being written by Jake Wade Wall (the remakes of The Hitcher and When A Stranger Calls), and involves a cruise ship encountering an abandoned research vessel. There are, at least, plenty of cabins on cruise ships. Cabin Fever: Outbreak meanwhile, takes the virus to a Caribbean island, and will be penned by Adam and Deborah Marcus (Jason Goes To Hell, Texas Chainsaw 3D).

The current plan is to shoot both films next spring, in the Dominican Republic. Look out for them in Kim's Video Dungeon as and when. Indomina are also working on a movie of the manga and anime series Afro Samurai.
