Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever

Directed by: Ti West

Release Date: 2009

First thing's first - where's the cabin? Maybe the title should have been changed but besides this huge omission, I was completely involved with this movie.

It is widely known on the internet horror community that Ti West publicly disowned this movie due to post-production issues with the company. Even though West states the movie isn't his because he wasn't present in post-production, I would have to disagree with him.

Cabin Fever

Directed by: Eli Roth

Release Date: 2003

Five college students on the brink of independence and entering adulthood decide to rent a cabin in the woods for the summer. In typical horror picture fashion, shit goes crazy. The question that most horror fans ask themselves when they read the aforementioned sentence is, "How is the execution of this story differ from other horror pictures with the same premise?" Real easy: those pictures aren't directed and written by Eli Roth. On a serious tip, the flesh eating virus that's spread is totally gnarly (in a great way) and the makeup effects? There's a sick scene between Jordan Ladd and Rider Strong's character that makes you cringe with disgust where you want to close your eyes, but you have to continue watching.
