#114. Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever - Review

Oh man I did not expect Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever to be this awesome! A die-hard fan (and what seems to be apologist. Why no love?) of the Eli Roth original Cabin Fever, the sequel forges on its own and creates a film that is both wholly different, and completely true to its namesake. Staying away from secluded cabins and forests in general, Cabin Fever 2 instead takes place in small town suburbia. Directed by Ti West, who gave us the tonally perfect film The House of the Devil in 2009, he creates a film that succeeds on its own merits. Funny, gory, raunchy, and brutal, Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever is not only a great sequel, but also a wonderful addition to a lacking low-budget horror genre all on its own. Loved it!

Why do I feel like I am the only guy that really liked the first Cabin Fever flick? Let me know in the comments what you thought of the original film, and if you would be interested in watching the sequel. As always, please share the site on your facebook/twitter pages so CU can get some love!

I agree with you there were certain highlights of the film, bloody penises and porn star worthy ejaculations, but the best part of the film were the opening and closing animation. Besides the cliche zombie-esque scenario we've seen since the beginning of time, one of the major flaws of this movie for me was the difficulty for new viewers to understand the whole "down home water" concept. I've never seen the first and I would've appreciated some explanation of "Down home water" or a further exploration of the mythology. B- for moi.

Yeah I can understand kind of being in the dark if you hadn't seen the 1st flick... But the cliched zombie storyline didn't really bother me. I guess I was just so entertained that I never really noticed.
