Watch Trailers, Read Review, Base Decision

Watch Trailers to upcoming Horror, Thriller, or Sci-Fi films?  Did the compelling footage sway you, the viewer into buying a movie ticket or two. How often were those purchases an ill-fated outcome? How many times were the regrets? When was the last time you walked out of the theater lamenting money that could have went elsewhere.

Welcome to a new column here at DecayMag.com. We’ve abandoned the customary approach in the posting of movie trailers. Most online news sources provide a basic summary to go with the footage. We’ll be taking an innovative by offering an analysis of the footage. Its part of our continued efforts in providing you, the moviegoer with educated decision(s).

Its understandable to not base assumptions and critique a film based on its trailer. Yet, trailers are marketing ploys, enticements to lure audiences. For the uninitiated, these action paced tension filled sequences are trustworthy. For reserved horror enthusiasts footage is only eye candy.

To kick off our new featured article, we’re reviewing trailers to several upcoming films. Below is a small list of Horror, Thriller and Sci-Fi films soon to grace small and big screens.

Cabin Fever (2016) Reboot

Director: Travis Zariwny

Writer: Randy PearlsteinEli Roth

Release Date: 12 February 2016 (USA)

Release Format: Limited Theater, VOD

MPAA Rating: Not Rated

Horror Sub-Genre: Comedy, Horror

Synopsis: 

A group of five friends are terrorized at their getaway cabin. A remake of the 2002 film, ‘Cabin Fever’.

Trailer Summary:

Teens trek to a remote cabin in the woods in an old pick up truck. It appears to be a retreat between close friends. The opening scene features a voice over from a solemn voiced young woman. Its safe to summarize she may be the survivor of this close quarter epidemic.

Some kissing and bedroom romance provides a set up to terror and carnage. Presented afterwards are random clips summarizing the plot of the film. Some type flesh-eating virus transitioned from cattle and now infects humans.

Opinion:

If you’re familiar with the “Cabin Fever” movie franchise most of what’s presented is nothing new. For instance the gruesome vaginal discharge seen in the trailer is reminiscent of the scene in “Cabin Fever: Patient Zero”. Isolating the infected in an outhouse once again borrows from  “Cabin Fever: Patient Zero”. The film serves as a reboot to the 2002 release “Cabin Fever”. It appears to be a remake of the third installment.
