High above the city of New York in his multi-million dollar penthouse, Danny Rand a.k.a. Iron Fist is haunted by the choices he’s made. Choosing death over life brings with it many consequences. But when a message from Iron Fist’s mystical homeland of K’un Lun calls Danny back – he’ll be forced to revisit the blood soaked origin of betrayal and vengeance that has plagued him for so long. “Danny is going to be put through the wringer like never before,” says Kaare Andrews in an interview with Marvel.com. “I love to punish my characters. To make them bleed. Watch them struggle against impossible odds, and see if they can find the strength inside themselves to survive—the truth that will be the biggest hurdle of them all. He's been hiding from it for too long. He doesn't have to uncover it, so much as survive it. »
I really really wanted to enjoy this film. I did. Im pulling for the man in the directors chair. I found a very strange degree of satisfaction from Kaare Andrews 2010 effort Altitude (I know the general consensus is that the movie sucked an epically large golf ball and Ill admit it wasnt a perfect piece of work by any stretch) and I thought his work in ABCs of Death was solid (he handled the V for Vagitus segment). It shouldnt come as a surprise that I anticipated an extremely gnarly addition to the mans rsum. Forward momentum seemed inevitable for Andrews. And Sean Astin is attached for heavens sake Im heartbroken to say that we just didnt get the revolting prize that could have been. Its not here. »
Although it has little to nothing to do with the original “Cabin Fever” or the Ti West-directed sequel, someone felt the need to incorporate this nasty little virus-oriented thriller into the series. While “Cabin Fever: Patient Zero” could easily be a standalone feature, they’re using the “Cabin Fever” name to hook in unsuspecting horror nerds. Okay, okay. I’m probably picking on “Patient Zero” a little too hard. The movie is actually quite disturbing and thoroughly entertaining, especially for a low-budget sequel. The girl-on-girl fight scene at the end of the movie is truly something to behold, especially if you love really good gore. Director Kaare Andrews and writer Jake Wade Wall’s flick probably looks great on the big screen. Image Entertainment recently snapped up North American distribution rights to the flick. If all goes according to plan, then “Cabin Fever: Patient Zero” should arrive in a few theaters this summer. »

Let's just get it out of the way from the beginning: it'd be really hard to make a worse Cabin Fever (2002) sequel than Cabin Fever 2 (2009). Arguably the only weak movie in Ti West's filmography (and he's not a big fan of it himself), Cabin Fever 2 was the victim of endless studio tinkering, release delays, and really sloppy post-production decisions. The sequel has gone on to earn a small but vocal fanbase, however, and Eli Roth's original squirm-fest continues to bring in new horror geeks all the time. So surely there's some gas left in this franchise's tank, right?
Shockingly... yes! That's not to say that the slow-starting, frequently predictable Cabin Fever 3: Patient Zero is some sort of miniature classic, but if you liked Part 1 and you struggled through Part 2, you'll certainly find a few meaty morsels of splatter-laden lunacy in Part 3. Plus it has some of those »

Director: Kaare Andrews. Review: Adam Wing. What's that you say, Cabin Fever 3? What the hell happened to Cabin Fever 2? Spring Fever, you say? Nope. Still doesn't ring a bell. In all fairness, you'd be forgiven for missing the second part of this unwanted trilogy altogether. Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever was a mess of a movie, a film so terrifyingly bad even the director disowned it. To be fair to Ty West (The Innkeepers), the finished article was nothing like the film he envisaged, having abandoned the film at the start of post-production, but the studio stepped in and Cabin Fever 2 emerged, the product of too many cooks and not enough good taste. The original entry in the series, directed by Eli Roth, was one of the better cabin-in-the-woods movies, with unpredictable twists, a welcome dose of homage, sharp humour and gore aplenty. Now comes the horror sequel nobody asked for, »
I distinctly remember the hype surrounding the release of the original Cabin Fever movie – written and directed by then newcomer Eli Roth, the film was touted as a new breed of horror, made for genre fans by a genre fan. I also remember when the film was eventually released there was somewhat of a backlash, after all it wasn’t much more than a mix of backwoods horror and “melt movie”. But the film did well enough to warrant a sequel which, after wrangles between director Ti West (House of the Devil) and the films producers – who re-edited the film to such an extent that West disowned the movie, was released in 2009. Slammed by even those who loved the original film, Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever »
