Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever (2009)
It's back: The flesh-eating virus that decimated a cabin full of coeds is on the loose again. This time around, a high school prom is ground zero for the epidemic in this horror sequel directed by Ti West. Thanks to a local stream being contaminated during the first outbreak, the bottled water being distributed at the high school dance is causing the unwitting students to break out in ghastly blisters and sores.
The first Cabin Fever was actually really good. But this was just outright awful. It seemed like a Carrie with a disease thrown in the mix. The gore and gross out was forced and laughable. I am a lover of horror and gore but this looked like something a kid would do for a school project. Dont even waste your time with this!
What a dumb pile of shit. Seriously... It starts off alright... the first half hour or so isn't too bad. After awhile the shock factor starts getting way over the top... I thought there was far too much blood and bodily fluid and this is coming from someone who thinks House Of 1000 Corpses is a masterpiece. There was no point to any of this crap. It took a decent idea and stomped/spit on it. It definitely didn't help that the last 10 minutes or so of the movie is animated... seemed like toward the end they realized the movie was a pile and decided to just make a weak cartoon. If you liked the first one do yourself a favor and watch it again instead of watching this. It's not worth it.
