Despite the lukewarm reception from fans, Eli Roth himself is 'blown away' by the Cabin Fever reboot, telling IGN:
“It’s great. And I’m saying that honestly. I saw it and I was blown away. I couldn’t believe it. Travis Zariwny the director did a fantastic job.
I saw the cut and thought that what Travis did was so smart – he kept the original script, but he changed the deaths, so all the kills are different.
And it looks awesome – it’s a really fun movie. I’m happily surprised at how it’s turned out.”
