Get Infected With a Teaser for Cabin Fever: Patient Zero

So, yes, a third chapter in the Cabin Fever series – Cabin Fever: Patient Zero – is now in the works at Indomina Releasing and with the American Film Market rapidly approaching (that’s the event here in Los Angeles where film buyers and sellers convene to show off their goods), a teaser trailer has been created to generate some awareness.

The teaser you’ll find within is just that: A teaser.  There are no big reveals, but it gives you an idea as to where things are going.  You’ll recognize shots from the original Cabin Fever because this is merely a sales reel – something created by the company to attract buyers when footage from the film is not yet available.
