Part of a "special" late-nite television program...Four friends on their way to a wedding find themselves marooned on a mysterious farm. Creatures of the night awaken and the undead rise, as a night of relentless horror...Begins!
When a group of friends enjoying a bachelor cruise in the Caribbean stumble upon a research facility on a remote island, a deadly virus is unleashed. The group must find a way to survive before the flesh eating virus consumes them all.
Torture porn has come a long way. Most notably getting a great start with the original Cabin Fever back in 2002, which was forthcoming Saw, then Hostel and The Collector, which all lead up to this mess. Cabin Fever 2 is a fast paced film on the verge of being a shock film. Originally planned distribution in 2007, it was delayed up until 2010 to be released. It goes beyond your wildest nightmare with the gore scenes, the flesh eating scenes, and the ending.
The film starts out about five minutes where the originally left off. A school bus hits a man (who is mistaken for a moose) by Giuseppe Andews. Lord knows his acting is exceptionally well, but he is the only fun and enjoyable part of the film with his stereotypical 90s tone and funny approach to every character he comes in contact with.
The likability of the characters, is very slim. I don't care, or like for that matter, any of the characters excluding Andrews. I just want to see fights and blood. Boy, I was barking up the wrong tree. Its no doubt that this movie would follow in the footsteps of the first film. But the gore scenes are laughably fake and unrealistic to the point its inexcusable.
A flesh eating disease as spread vastly through a popular brand of bottled water. Of course, a prom is in the mix, and a big bowl of punch including the tainted water is brought to the party. When consumed by nearly every student, a certain team quarantines the school locking everyone inside leaving no escape. The two who aren't infected are John and Cassie, two high school students hiding their feelings for each other.
Contemplating not going to prom, John does along with Cassie and things heat up at school. A death in the pool seems minor, but its definitely the part I experienced the most nausea in. For a Horror movie, its passable, but for the long wait this movie had me under, I expected much more. The rotten core stems from the bad acting and some unrealistic measures involving a table saw, a flame thrower, and duct tape. Barely passable Horror flick.
Starring: Rider Strong, Giuseppe Andrews, Judah Friedlander, Noah Segan, and Marc Senter. Directed by: Ti West.
