I have always heard that one of the central purposes of shooting Super35 was to cater to the pan and scan home video version, as well as to keep cost low. After watching Cabin Fever, I was very impressed visually and was curious as to how Eli Roth shot the movie. The answer is this: Anamorphic Panavision! Now I wasn't a big fan of Cabin Fever, but if budget is a concern when shooting anamorphic, how is it that a $1,500,000 movie (for a frame of reference, Matrix Reloaded was shot Super35 and had a budget of $127,000,000) spent the extra money to shoot their low-budget horror film for the big-screen? Maybe this says something about Eli Roth? I'm baffled!
