Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever (2009)

Ti West takes the helm of writer/director for the second installment of gross-out humor in CF2. Less than 10 minutes in it's pretty obvious something has gone awry. Reported BTS disputes with producers leaves West's vision on the cutting room floor and what's left is quite frankly embarrassing. After a decent opening linking the story to the original, it quickly goes downhill. The film suffers hard from lingering too long on the pathetic high school characters before the blood really hits the fan. While there's plenty of repulsive moments throughout the latter half, there isn't one scene I would classify as memorable. A series of amateurish animated sequences explaining the pathway of infection is the cherry on top of the shit sundae. It's no wonder West wished his name removed from the film.
