Synopsis: A high school prom faces a deadly threat: a flesh-eating virus that spreads via a popular brand of bottled water.
My Review: The follow-up to Eli Roth’s acclaimed Cabin Fever turns out to be much better than I first expected.
I was not a big fan of Cabin fever and I actually believe the sequel to be better. There is no shift in tone this time and the movie successfully keeps the american pie style humor all the way to the end. Deputy winston is as funny as can be and the whole high school prom spoof while not original, is well played out.
The gore does not shy away and some scenes are really disgusting (one involving puss squirting out a penis will make you feel sick I promise).
Contrary to most, I’m not a big fan of Ti West and none of his movies have impressed me so far (I have yet to see The Sacrament). He has a tendency to let things drag for too long without the cinematography chops to make those long scenes even remotely interesting.
In Cabin Fever 2 there is no dead time and to me at least this is his best film. Ironically it’s the one that he disavows, go figure!!
If you enjoy gross out horror comedy, this one is for you but if you were looking for a more serious attempt to disease type horror, you might be disappointed.
My Rating: 5.5/10
Director: Ti West
