Man, I thought this was going to be so GREAT, but boy, was I ever in for a huge letdown. This was nothing but a sad 'shock-value' flick. Although, it offered tons of blood, it was still very dumb! And what was up with the cartoon ending? If you can call that an ending and not an open door unto Part 3. What a shameless mess. :(

So I had high hopes for this, even though Eli Roth wasn't involved. I was hoping it would pick up where the first one left off and it does. However, the only other thing from Cabin Fever that stays the same is the goofy cop, Winston. He was probably the best part of Cabin Fever 2, besides Noah Segan. They both gave it their all, but sadly, this movie fails. I was very disappointed. Not even the awesome amounts of blood could make this movie decent. *sigh* Rent it or watch it online.

First off, Rider Strong is in this movie for all of about 3 minutes. I guess that's enough to provide a weak link to the first movie.
Second, I would not refer to this as "comedy horror".
Third, I quit watching the slew of movies that have been labeled as "torture porn" after watching Bolle's Seed and Laugier's Martyrs. Those movies were nothing less than repulsive and had no entertainment or moral value whatever.
Fourth, despite its attempt at humor, Cabin Fever 2 falls into the category of over-the-top, tasteless, irredeemable garbage. No one is tortured in this film but it reeks of the same let's-watch-innocent-people-die-violently mentality that can lead to viewers becoming desensitized to the violence that occurs in real life. I'm saddened anyone could find such material "entertaining".
Finally, this movie is simply bad. I wouldn't even give it the distinction being a grade B movie. The main story is only 72 minutes. Then a 5 minute spin-off story is pursued. Then follows a horribly drawn cartoon lasting several minutes. Such filler is required to stretch out the film.
I definitely do not recommend this film. You'll never get your 86 minutes back.

Not horrible, but nothing special

"I admittedly wasn't too fond of the original Cabin Fever, and with all the news of production problems that plagued this Eli Roth-less sequel, plus with all the time it spent on Lions Gate's shelf, it's a wonder how Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever didn't turn out to be a steaming train wreck. Instead, what we get here instead is a film that feels as if it's half-finished, and for all rights and purposes, it is. Ti West helms the film, which picks up shortly after the events of the first film, with that same flesh eating virus wrecking havoc upon high school kids at prom. Where the film shines is surprisingly with these high school/teen conventions, which West manages to handle with actual care, just as he did with his excellent recent film The House of the Devil. And oh yeah, there is a heaping amount of gore and sick gross out moments to be had as well. If you're a gorehound, you'll be happy with what all you find here. Where the film fails however is thanks to its ending, or rather lack there of. West had many disagreements with the producers, leading to an ending that truly has been assembled without the man's approval. Still though, there's enough here to recommend Cabin Fever 2 if you have the stomach for it: the animated segments are nicely done, there's a great soundtrack, Giuseppe Andrews returns as the party loving cop Winston (as does Rider Strong in an incredibly brief, but oh so memorable, turn of events in the film's opening), and as said before, there is a heaping amount of gore and just plain disgusting moments. If any of that sounds appealing to you, by all means check out Cabin Fever 2."

"This movie was terrible, suffering from an exceedingly poor script, weak acting, zero tension or suspense, and mediocre gore effects. I'm not a person to say that a horror movie should spend alot of time developing characters, but characters should be at least nominally developed so when they get killed off, you feel something about it one way or the other. The only thing I felt about the characters in Cabin Fevor 2 was irritation. In addition, Cabin Fevor 2 lacked any kind of production value polish that might have made up a little for the sub-standard script. Basically, this movie just blatantly exists to part suckers who lived Cabin Fevor 1 from their cash, and that's the only horror to this film."
For Shame!!! - Not Even 'F' Grade Horror!!!

"I will beg to contradict many others here in that I loved the original Cabin Fever - it forms part of my collection of horror movies from all about the same era - Wrong Turn, Ghost Ship, Thirteen Ghosts.
When I saw this in the dvd shop I was SO excited as I had seen this on Amazon.com and was planning on buying it.............thank goodness I did not!!!
This was only what I could call a very very very bad parody of a horror movie - think 'Scary Movie' type of setup, but not nearly as funny or well done. Whoever made this movie obviously decided to make this completely farcical and unbelievable - and the gore...........I'm sorry but projectile blood like from a fire hose..........c'mon!!!!!!
If I can contribute anything to the horror loving community - save your money and your time and avoid this piece of drivel - the only thing it has in common with its predecessor is in the title, thats it. What a disappointment!"
