Ti West Talks Cabin Fever 2

Published

on

Cabin Fever 2 director Ti WestCabin Fever 2 has been threatened for so long, you have to wonder whether or not it actually exists. It seems like we’re getting closer to seeing the long-delayed sequel to the 2002 Eli Roth film, but the question today is whether or not it’s actually worth seeing. If director Ti West is to be believed, it doesn’t sound like it.

/Film learned via a Q&A with the director that Lionsgate seized control of the sequel and recut the film without West’s approval. West told the audience he was aiming for a John Waters feel or Todd Solondz style (which I assume means lots of perverse sex and disgusting bodily fluids – sounds good to me!), but the studio had other ideas. They removed his heart and star wipes, among other things, resulting in a far less esoteric film.

Too bad. If Lionsgate is shucking Cabin Fever 2 direct to Blu-ray and DVD, why do they care? I never understood why even direct-to-video features are so heavily sanitized when the market is much more niche. I guess the ultimate concern is making sure the Blockbuster customers don’t object too much, which is a shame. I’ll be curious to see the end result, but West’s edit sounds much more interesting.

Charles Manson. The name alone lives on in infamy even long after his physical remains lay rotting… and rightly so. A new docudrama entitled Charles Manson: The Final Words is on its way, and we have new details and behind-the-scenes imagery for you. Check it out!

The flick made its premiere on the REELZ Channel, and Breakthrough Entertainment has announced that they’ve acquired worldwide distribution rights to the project that features narration from Rob Zombie and is home to the final interview given by America’s most notorious and now deceased cult-leader and mass murderer, Charles Manson.

The opportunity that we have to offer this distinct and truly unique documentary to our international clients is beyond exciting for Breakthrough Entertainment,” said Craig McGillivray, Vice President, Distribution at Breakthrough Entertainment. “We are continuously focused on sourcing captivating new premium content that pushes the envelope and generates mass attention such as this amazing film from James Buddy Day and Pyramid Productions.

The two-hour film narrated by musician Zombie focuses on the so-called Manson family murders told from Manson’s perspective using never-before-seen case files, pictures, and exclusive interviews with Manson himself from inside California State Prison. The feature documentary reveals new details that unveil the true story and motives behind the grisly murder spree. The audio used in the doc contains the last recorded interviews with the infamous killer conducted by director and producer James Buddy Day.

It has been a truly distinct project for us and an experience that very few producers encounter. This film has the potential to captivate global audiences, and we are very excited to have Breakthrough Entertainment on board to share this one-of-a-kind documentary,” says James Buddy Day, Executive Producer at Pyramid Productions.
