If you’ve seen the first Cabin Fever, you know exactly what this one is about because it’s almost a shot-for-shot remake of the original.  As a matter of fact, it was completely unnecessary to make it.  Well, me and DJ feel that way anyway.  It added nothing to the original concept and may have even managed to take something away from the surprise of the first film.

Everyone makes poor decisions in this movie and no one is very likable.  There were no rules and no Freddy Claws.  The specials were good and there were boob shots, but it couldn’t save this piss poor affair.  I really wish it had been an actual reimagining of the first movie.  That might have been good.

My score: 22.  DJ’s score: 16.
