Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever (2010)
Movie Review by The Spastic Cannibal
02.26.10

Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever (2010) I had enjoyed Eli Roth's "Cabin Fever" - seeing it as a pretty fun and fairly nasty "outbreak" horror/comedy with a nice hint of "camp". Ti West's long adjourned sequel redeemed the director's obvious potential, in my opinion, considering I strongly disliked his recent "grindhouse" wannabe flick, "House of the Devil"...

Hell, "Cabin Fever 2" seems to work much better as a cool 80s 'splatter' throwback and West does the complete opposite of before, in terms of pacing, and keeps the ball rolling and the gooey effects a'pouring. The opening scene kicks things off well with the main character from the first movie being finished off - followed by an odd animated credit sequence showing the contaminated reservoir water being bottled and shipped to a high school where the kids are throwing back the tainted H20 all day while planning their prom and struggling through their dating issues. During the dance, they are quarantined inside the school while they begin dissolving and breaking into panic-induced violence against each other...

Think "Porky's" or "Fast Times" except with the satisfying payoff of the kids melting from a flesh-eating bacteria. This thing ups the ante a lot more in comparison to the first one, also, as far as gore - including a puss-oozing pecker and tons of blood puking. Giuseppe Andrews - the "party man" cop from the original - plays more of a decisive role as the same character who is the first to interpret the commencement of the disease, while modeling the same ineptitude. As far as the humor goes, it works a little better than the way Roth tried in the first movie. Here, it's a lot less requisite and more toned down, which worked much better for me. Like I thought that how many of the people in this particular school seemed to have some kind of oral affliction (herpes, hair-lips, etc.) was kind of funny... There's even the inclusion of a rabbit costume and pancakes (no blond kid, though). Unfortunately, it felt like they really skimped on the ending in which all of the remaining characters are confusingly discarded off into fairly unexplained courses... Again, West's "House of the Devil" did a much similar thing with it's ending that didn't much 'work'...

Overall, "Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever" offers some fine entertainment and is a decent enough throw-back to 80s stuff like - say, "Class of Nuke 'Em High" and "Street Trash". I'd recommend it...
