Remember Cabin Fever? It’s Sequel is Finally Getting Released

No Comments

CabinFever2It seems like forever ago that I first heard rumblings about a follow-up to “Hostel” director Eli Roth’s feature-length debut “Cabin Fever,” a film that, for reasons that still remain unclear, tickles me to no end. The sequel, spearheaded by “House of the Devil” mastermind Ti West, apparently had a somewhat turbulent production, forcing West to publicly distance himself from the finished product. Is the film as bad as it sounds? If all goes according to plan, you’ll get a chance to find out soon enough, as Lionsgate has scheduled “Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever” for early next year. And while I’d like to say I’m intrigued by the idea, there’s a part of me that knows this picture shouldn’t exist.

Here’s what it’s all about:

Days after a killer virus consumed his friends; Paul emerges from a ditch by a river. Though his body has been ravaged by the virus, he is determined to survive and to warn others of the danger. However, a water bottling plant has already distributed contaminated water to the local high school. The school’s students are excitedly preparing for the prom, unaware they’re about to have a grisly date with death.

Sounds like a rehash to me, but I’m willing to give West the benefit of the doubt. “Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever” will infect retailers on February 16th. Tentative DVD artwork lies below.
