The flesh-eating virus that consumed a group of college vacationers is back in Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever. In this sequel to the not very good original, the virus gets leaked into the water supply at a local high school. The film takes a while to get going, focusing on character development before gore but unfortunately the characters are poorly written overall and incredibly one dimensional. This is film that is drenched in blood and high school cliches, with all of the main characters being very boring and uninspired. I'm sure some would argue that this was an intentional decision but I'm not buying that. Apparently Ti West has tried to have his name removed from Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever but I'm not sure why even with the aforementioned problems. West has put together a film with some damn creative and fun gore gags and expressionistic imagery. The film is silly but it has some great moments - an example being the montage prom sequence where the signs of the virus are blunt in execution but it's certainly a well crafted sequence nonetheless. Cabin Fever 2 goes all out in the name of bad taste and it certainly succeeds at grossing out the viewer. While I can understand West's issue with the generic and boring narrative, it's gross, fun and better then Roth's original.
Love of all things cinema brought me here.
