Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever (2010)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
05.15.10

Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever (2010) I didn't like the first movie at all so it was with a bit of trepidation I began to watch this direct-to-dvd sequel. It begins with a guy contaminated by the flesh eating bacteria, coming out of the river and running through a forest, dropping bits of flesh all over the place like THE INCREDIBLE MELTING MAN. Of course, he runs out onto a road and gets hit head on by a school bus and splatters like a huge water balloon. The stoned cop that shows up tells the bus driver he hit a moose and not to worry. But after the bus takes off he finds the guy's foot in a tree. Then, we go to the animated titles, which show how bottles of contaminated water are distributed throughout the town--and to the high school, which is having its prom that very night. The animation is sort of like YELLOW SUBMARINE and it accomplishes that unsettling effect of having a bright cartoon depict a dark subject.

The main story revolves around two buddies, neither who have high hopes of going to the dance that evening. But one of them befriends a crying slut and gets a BJ in the bathroom and he asks her out. She says she might go if she's not working (she's a stripper). The other friend is pining for the blonde girl, who just broke up with her asshole boyfriend. He gets the courage to ask her out but she declines. Both guys end up going to the dance, after all, and the blonde decided to show up--though she's reunited with her old boyfriend.

What I like best about this movie is the sense of humor, which stems from the absurdity of the situations. It has some really funny dialogue as well. In one scene, in which the cop is investigating the water company, the night guard thinks he's being busted for having sex with an underage girl and says "She told me she was 18. I always believe what children tell me". There's also plenty of grossness and the most blood I've seen in a horror movie in years. There's the infected janitor peeing bloody urine into the red punch bowl, a flesh dissolving penis (I could have done without that), plenty of projectile blood vomiting and a restroom floor miscarriage. The one thing that unnerved me the most though, was when the guy was gluing his fingernail back on with superglue...

I really enjoyed director Ti West's HOUSE OF THE DEVIL and again he proves that he has that knack for capturing that 70's and 80's vibe. I also like that it ended with another animated sequence that opens the series wide up to almost anything, as the disease is spread across the country in various ways. This could be the beginning of a decent string of CABIN FEVER films....
