As a last hurrah after college, friends Jeff, Karen, Paul, Marcy and Bert embark on a vacation deep into the mountains. With the top down and the music up, they drive to a remote cabin to enjoy their last days of decadence before entering the working world. Then somebody gets sick. Karen’s skin starts to bubble and burn as something grows inside her, tunneling beneath her flesh. As the others debate about how to save her, they look at one another and realize that any one of them could also have it. What began as a struggle against the disease soon turns into a battle against friends, as the fear of contagion drives them to turn on each other.
Cabin Fever 2:
Cabin Fever delivered terror in the flesh, but now your flesh will crawl with Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever, the bloodcurdling sequel to the hit horror film. 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.
On an annual extreme outdoor adventure, six women meet in a remote part of the Appalachians to explore a cave hidden deep in the woods. Far below the surface of the earth, disaster strikes when a rock fall blocks their exit and there's no way out. The women push on, praying for another exit, but there is something else lurking under the earth. The friends are now prey, forced to unleash their most primal instincts in an all-out war against an unspeakable horror--one that attacks without warning, again and again and again.
Dazed, bloodied and speechless with trauma, Sarah Carter emerges alone from the Appalachian cave system where the events of The Descent took place. Local sheriff Redmond Vaines forces her back underground to help the rescue team which is desperately searching for her five missing girlfriends. As the team moves deeper into the caves, Sarah’s flashes of fractured memory intensify and she begins to realize the full horror of the would-be rescue mission. Only Sarah knows the terror which lurks in the shadows of the caves. But they are about to encounter a new tribe of crawlers – inbred, deformed and even more viciously feral than those Sarah faced before.

I was surprised to find that the four films came in four separate discs, instead of two-fers or flippers. Disc art is minimal though. Lionsgate has not skimped on the extras either, with a decent amount of valuable supplemental material. One of the films had four commentaries, in fact. Again, I did not expect any extras or even SDH subtitles at this low price for all four films. Lionsgate has somehow managed to fit in all four discs in one standard DVD case, so do not worry about shelf space.
As for the movies themselves, the price of admission is worth for Cabin Fever and Descent alone, both excellent movies. The fact that their not-so-well-known sequels are included is a real bonus. Again, don't expect the sequels to live up to the originals, but they are nevertheless a good way to spend 90 minutes or so. The picture and audio quality of all four films are very good, especially if upsampled on a blu ray or an upconverting DVD player.
If you are a true horror/thriller fan and do not have any of the films featured in this collection, you should add this to your cart post-haste. This box set is highly recommended for all movie fans out there. I can hardly wait to sample the other four film collections issued by Lionsgate, which really has an excellent slate of horror movies. Note that some of the films are available on BD and DVD individually for perfectionists, but this is a real bargain that you will not want to miss.
I would definitely give the Descent movies a HUGE recommendation for any horror fan. (Especially if you're looking for a movie that is able to deliver the thrill and gore of a horror movie without relying on sex to sell. Since there is literally NO sexual situations in the entire movie - though there might be a light shower scene, though I can't rememeber 100%.)
1. The Descent (Awesome very scary movie).
2. The Descent 2 (Good movie in its own right, but not nearly as scary as the first one).
3. Cabin Fever (Weird, but enjoyable, backwoods flesh eating zombie disease horror comedy).
4. Cabin Fever 2 (See above, but this time the disease that turns you into a flesh eater is loose at a high school dance).
