Kevin Riepl’s original score to reboot of Eli Roth’s cult film out now!

Sumthing Else Music Works presents the original motion picture soundtrack for CABIN FEVER composed by Kevin Riepl (BATMAN UNLIMITED, CABIN FEVER: PATIENT ZERO, GEARS OF WAR). A reboot of Eli Roth’s 2002 film of the same name, CABIN FEVER follows a group of five college graduates who rent a cabin in the woods. Soon, all hell breaks loose, as the group falls victim to a flesh-eating virus that attracts the unwanted attention of the homicidal locals. Kevin Riepl’s CABIN FEVER Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is now available for digital download on iTunes, Sumthing.com and all digital music sites.

When searching for the right composer the film’s director Travis Z found a short film online featuring a driving, tribal drumbeat which he used in the rough cut for reference. He showed the short to producer Evan Astrowsky who recognized the composer was none other than Kevin Riepl, the composer of CABIN FEVER: PATIENT ZERO. Astrowsky commented, “As we were trying to give CABIN FEVER a new vision, we were hesitant to invite people associated with the other films to the table. Kevin’s work, however, is so powerful, so original, that it was impossible to resist.”

Kevin Riepl is an award-winning composer writing for multiple entertainment genres. His engaging, hybrid and atmospheric scores have enhanced numerous films including THE NIGHT CREW (starring Luke Goss, Bokeem Woodbine and Danny Trejo), CABIN FEVER: PATIENT ZERO, SILENT NIGHT, CONTRACTED and THE ABCs of DEATH. In addition he has scored cult hit sci-fi shorts such as ATROPA, HENRI (starring Keir Dullea) and RUIN. Riepl is also renowned for composing the epic, signature scores for blockbuster video games including GEARS OF WAR, the UNREAL series, ALIENS: COLONIAL MARINES, and many more. Most recently he scored Warner Bros. Animation’s movie BATMAN UNLIMITED: ANIMAL INSTINCTS and BATMAN UNLIMITED: MONSTER MAYHEM nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Music at the 2016 Annie Awards. Upcoming projects include Warner Bros. animated movie BATMAN UNLIMITED: MECHS VS. MONSTERS, Eric England’s black comedy-thriller GET THE GIRL and BATTLEBORN, the new first-person shooter from the creators of BORDERLANDS.

CABIN FEVER is currently showing in select theaters and available On Demand.
