Viewers first saw the flesh-eating virus plague a group of friends in the woods in Eli Roth's Cabin Fever, but the prequel shows that the virus has tropical origins. Cabin Fever: Patient Zero is currently available to watch on VOD platforms in the US, and now Image Entertainment has announced a Blu-ray/DVD release date for the third installment in the flesh-eating franchise.

Cabin Fever: Patient Zero will come out in a Blu-ray/DVD combo and on DVD in the US on September 2nd. No special features have been revealed at this time, but we'll keep Daily Dead readers posted on further updates. Interested in learning more about the film? We have the official synopsis, trailer, and a look at the Blu-ray cover art (thanks to Amazon for the image!).

“A group of friends planned the perfect vacation in the Caribbean, but when they head ashore to explore a remote island, their ultimate bachelor weekend devolves into their worst nightmare. After an ill-fated swim in contaminated water, they stumble upon a seemingly abandoned research facility where a deadly, flesh-eating virus has been unleashed.”

Directed by Kaare Andrews and written by Jake Wade Wall, Cabin Fever: Patient Zero stars Sean Astin, Currie Graham, Brando Eaton, Jillian Murray, Mitch Ryan, Ryan Donowho, and Lydia Hearst. You can read our review at:
