Review: Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever (2009)

Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever
IMDB rate: 4,2
Genre: Virus

I finally was able to watch Cabin Fever 2, I was a bit curious about it because the first one was funny in a very weird and bad way. I always like to watch virus movies, especially when it's in a setup like this one where it's continues where the previous part ended. It's kinda like REC, but well, obviously only the continuation part. 
Cabin Fever 2 isn't much of a good movie, it's a lot like the first one but a lot more random and with a bigger setup.

A High School prom faces a deadly threat: a flesh-eating virus that spreads via a popular brand of bottled water.

It was kinda funny, the movie starts with Rider Strong, the same actor as the first movie ends with, and he is listed at the top everywhere, but he's only in the movie for about.. 3 minutes or so? I would have liked to see his part a little bit bigger, perhaps him finding some sort of cure or explaining some stuff, but well, it kinda ended very fast.

The movie is still a bit comedic-like, just like the first one. While the first one had some disgusting skin parts, I think that the sequel was even more disgusting. It really made me a tiny bit sick in my stomach a few times, quite funny really since it's a ridiculous movie.

As expected, Cabin Fever 2 was filled with sex again. But in this one, it was more in a nasty level. Blow-jobs with nasty lips, pus from penises, tits with nasty humps, miscarriages, it was like they tried to shock everyone even more. I don't mind though, while it made me sick looking at it, it was also kinda a cool twist to actually show these nastinesses. 

The movie itself, it wasn't too great. It seemed kinda random to me. We know who is sick and we know what will happen to those who touch the water, so what will happen to most of them is not very surprising anymore. The main story in this one seems to be a guy who likes a girl and they both tried to escape this virus, again, not a very original concept. Well, then the school is being put into quarantine, which makes it harder for them to escape. So the biggest deal from this movie is waiting for them to escape, there's not a whole lot tension in that to be honest.

I think that Spring Fever is a decent sequel for Cabin Fever, considering all these terrible other sequels in the world, it's really not that bad. The acting is definitely not very good and the storyline neither, but the gore is awesome and so are the special effects. This is one of the few movies that actually made me a tiny bit sick, so thumbs up for that! Overall, the movie isn't too good, but it gets a few points for being disgusting.

My personal rate: 4/10
