American Pie presents Cabin Fever

Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever (2009) starring Rider Strong, Noah Segan, Alexi Wasser

The creek infected with the deadly virus has contaminated the water supply to a water processing plant which supplies the water to a High School which is getting ready for prom. As friends John (Noah Segan) and Alex (Rusty Kelley) fret over whether they should go to the prom or not and if they do what will they do about getting dates they are going to have bigger issues to worry about as people start drinking the contaminated water and are becoming infected.

I came to the decision a while back that I am wired differently to some movie fans and it was "Cabin Fever" which made me decide that as I could not see what was so great about this horror movie which so many loved. The irony of that is when I read so many negative reviews about the sequel "Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever" I thought maybe it would turn out to be something I liked. And for about 5 minutes it had me with an amusing opening scene involving a returning character getting splattered in spectacular style by a school bus and then an amusing animation which explains how infected water got in to the water at a High School. It is a decent opening which plays more than ever on the comedy.

Unfortunately after that witty opening it then takes this low budget style which made me wonder whether I was watching "Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever" or watching a film clubs version of it with poor camera work, poor characters and poor acting. It also doesn't help that we suddenly have what feels like "American Pie presents Cabin Fever" with a series of dumb High School characters including a daft principal. About the only thing which "Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever" has going for it is when it goes for gore and at that point it doesn't hold back and so if all you want is in your face gore then maybe at a long shot it will entertain.

What this all boils down to is that "Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever" is weak, well visually weak and lacking in style. Maybe the storyline itself isn't that terrible but the final product comes across as so amateurish that it is hard to watch.
