So just how to you take one of the horror genre's most disappointing and overrated movies and actually fall to new lows with the sequel? Isn't it obvious? You turn the whole production into the lamest high school horror comedy of all time and top it off with copious amounts of projectile vomiting. That doofus cop from the first film? Make sure he has plenty of scenes in this one. Feel free, of course, to rip off other movies such as Carrie whenever you feel like it. Let's exploit every teenager cliché in the book while we're at it - and make sure there's an overweight young lady that we can openly ridicule. Hey, cameraman, let's do some weird angle shots, especially of that ridiculous-looking teacher with the beehive hairdo - the kids just go crazy for those weird camera angles. Oh, oh, oh! Heeheehee! Let's animate the opening credits and an ending sequence - that'll really mess with viewers' puny little minds. A decent story?Read more ›

I Like Horror Movies
What this second installment lacks in special effects it makes up for with guts, plot-induced or otherwise. The last of the mutated survivors from the first movie gets hit by a car, exploding in a blood-bag spatter into the town's water supply. I'm a sucker for animated montages, and Cabin Fever 2's introductory cartoon, accompanied by a grim folk song, sets the right tone for a town about to get very, very sick.
The acting is surprisingly good for a movie about a blood-vomiting infection. It centers on the town's prom, and to the writers' credit he takes time to explore each character's hopes, dreams, and petty grievances before making them puke their brains out.
Nothing is sacred in Cabin Fever 2 and no orifice is off limits. Blood ends up everywhere in the most awful circumstances imaginable, and for those who enjoy that sort of thing Cabin Fever 2 delivers in buckets. It also borrows a plot device used in Quarantine - the men in biohazard suits that show up to contain the infection are worse than the infection itself.
Unfortunately, once the prom is over Cabin Fever 2 runs out of bloody steam. There's an extraneous clip of a stripper who missed the prom infecting other people, another unnecessary animated montage, and a feeling that the ruthless moviemaking apparatus that churns out grad z horror movie sequels will not be denied. Despite the tacked on ending, this is a treat for horror fans haven't had as much bloody fun at a prom since Carrie.
When I saw this in the dvd shop I was SO excited as I had seen this on Amazon.com and was planning on buying it.............thank goodness I did not!!!
This was only what I could call a very very very bad parody of a horror movie - think 'Scary Movie' type of setup, but not nearly as funny or well done. Whoever made this movie obviously decided to make this completely farcical and unbelievable - and the gore...........I'm sorry but projectile blood like from a fire hose..........c'mon!!!!!!
If I can contribute anything to the horror loving community - save your money and your time and avoid this piece of drivel - the only thing it has in common with its predecessor is in the title, thats it. What a disappointment!
The film starts up basically where the first one left off. Paul (played by Rider Strong) makes his way through the woods, leaving behind a trail of loose flesh with every tree branch that he brushes up against. If you haven't seen the first film, it's basically about a group of teenagers who comes in contact with a deadly flesh eating virus. In this film we find out that the culprit is a local bottling plant in town called "Down Home Water"...and unfortunately they just so happen to supply bottled water to the local high school.
Rider Strong's character quickly meets his demise via the front end of a speeding school bus and this leads us into the next chapter of the 'Cabin Fever' saga...A new group of kids, same deadly virus. A majority of this film takes place around a high school prom where the teens not only try to survive the deadly outbreak, but they also have to contend with a contamination squad who shows up looking to use deadly force as a way to contain the virus.
Overall I enjoyed this film much more than I did the original and it surprises me, having now watched it, that Ti West had such an issue with the end result. The thing that I liked the most about the movie was the overall tone. Even though the movie is filled with gallons, upon gallons of the "red stuff", which is sure to gross out most movie goers, the dialog and acting is presented in a rather campy way which makes it so much fun to watch. You can tell that the actors really had a blast with the roles they are given because it certainly comes across that way on screen. There's also some really great cameo appearances with comedian Judah Friedlander and also Mark Borchardt of 'American Movie' fame who shows up playing Giuseppe Andrews' heavy metal listenin' cousin Herman.
The makeup effects by Quantum Creation's are surely the main selling point of this feature. Like I said before, there's tons of gore in this film...Before the movie is over we see blood splattered throughout the entire school practically. Some of the more memorable bits for me include Paul getting hit by the school bus in the beginning of the film and also a local townie who succumbs to the virus while eating pancakes at a local diner. There's so much stuff going on though that it's hard to pick out a favorite really. Gorehounds certainly won't be disappointed.
'Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever' was released by Lions Gate Home Entertainment on February 16th, 2010 and fans of the original will definitely want to give this one a watch. Even though most of the reviews I see regarding the film have been negative, I can't help but to call B.S. on all of them. Other than the less than stellar ending, I found this movie to be highly enjoyable and definitely worth checking out.
3.5 out of 5 stars
