Keeps you itching for more!
A frame-by-frame 2-D cartoon zip us through miles of unnecessary explanations, during the introduction credits, in regards to the plague's prolificity. No longer confined to a specific area, it spreads to the city; a high school, in this case, right before prom. Although some students are relatable, you can't worry about anyone’s death, here. They all seem well-aware of their own tragic destiny.
Cabin Fever had humans as threat, and this was probably too much in the same film. The main gimmick is strong enough and this sequel knows it. It learns from the unmarketable aspects of the original and offers us a mainstream story that doesn't feel like every other one. It is cheesy, disgusting, but the story unveils more naturally because it embraces comedy.
Between the blood, pus, sperm and vomit hides tender tongue-in-cheek romance and easy satire. It’s a smart movie purposely dumbed down and tinkered with in post-production but not for a dumb audience. It's namely an homage to prom night themed horror films of the 70’s and 80’s but delivered as a contamination flick. Entertaining from beginning to end, this is a no-brainer but a must-see!
