I admittedly wasn't too fond of the original Cabin Fever, and with all the news of production problems that plagued this Eli Roth-less sequel, plus with all the time it spent on Lions Gate's shelf, it's a wonder how Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever didn't turn out to be a steaming train wreck. Instead, what we get here instead is a film that feels as if it's half-finished, and for all rights and purposes, it is. Ti West helms the film, which picks up shortly after the events of the first film, with that same flesh eating virus wrecking havoc upon high school kids at prom. Where the film shines is surprisingly with these high school/teen conventions, which West manages to handle with actual care, just as he did with his excellent recent film The House of the Devil. And oh yeah, there is a heaping amount of gore and sick gross out moments to be had as well. If you're a gorehound, you'll be happy with what all you find here. Where the film fails however is thanks to its ending, or rather lack there of. West had many disagreements with the producers, leading to an ending that truly has been assembled without the man's approval. Still though, there's enough here to recommend Cabin Fever 2 if you have the stomach for it: the animated segments are nicely done, there's a great soundtrack, Giuseppe Andrews returns as the party loving cop Winston (as does Rider Strong in an incredibly brief, but oh so memorable, turn of events in the film's opening), and as said before, there is a heaping amount of gore and just plain disgusting moments. If any of that sounds appealing to you, by all means check out Cabin Fever 2.
