Porter (Sean Astin) is patient zero in quarantine at a CDC facility on some tropical island. He has a natural immunity to the virus. He is there against his will and will do anything to go back to the Shire. Meanwhile Marcus (Mitch Ryan) is going to marry into money with Kate (Claudette Lali). Marcus' wild brother Josh (Brando Eaton) has devised a "bachelor party" which consists of those two, a friend (Ryan Donowho) and Josh's girlfriend Penny (Jillian Murray), a former conquest of Marcus unknown to Josh. They are to take a large boat and go to a deserted island to drink, smoke, and snorkel.

It isn't rocket science to figure out that they make it to the quarantined island and have virus issues.

Sean Astin took his role seriously. The overall plot was unfortunate. There were gross containment rule violations that didn't make sense. The overall plot was weak as were the characters. The highlight of the film comes at the end with the ugliest cat fight in the history of cinema.

Worth a rental.

Parental Guide: F-bombs, sex, brief nudity (Jillian Murray and not supermodel Lydia Hearst)

This is a low budget horror film which has the feel of a made for TV movie. A bachelor party takes place on a deserted Caribbean style island. Mitch is the groom and takes along his brother, best mate and ex-girlfriend. The ex-girlfriend and one of the buddies soon contract a deadly virus which eats away the skin like a kind of leprosy. Disappointingly, the four characters have nothing interesting to say and the acting is amateurish. Sean Astin, famous as one of the hobbits in The Lord of The Rings franchise, appears here as an asymptomatic carrier of the virus, who is imprisoned at a disease research lab on the island. The virus is not contained by the lab, kills the fish in the surrounding sea, and is soon working its way through the bachelor party. The film suffers from a leaden script and a failure to make the viewer give two hoots about what happens to any of the characters. The usual hackneyed plot devices are used, e.g. no mobile signal is available, etc. The ex-girlfriend is staggeringly dishy, but, unusually for this type of film, manages to maintain her dignity and keep her clothes on (save for a one second flash of a cosmetically enhanced boob). There is no attempt at gallows humour, there is not a single jump off the sofa moment, and any attempt to create fear or tension fails. The film ends up feeling like an episode of Lost with the addition of some fake blood and so so prosthetic make up. Give this movie a wide swerve and watch the first in the trilogy. Alternatively, if you want to see a good horror film set in a tropical paradise, where things go badly wrong for a group of young hedonistic Yanks, try Paradise Lost or The Ruins.

Very average non-relevant sequel to an original fun and light hearted film. Four young adults go on a stag do on an island which is an infected science lab with a few survivors. The characters are quite fun, stupid but not too annoying. The script is the usual nonsense you get from this type of film; when in the middle of escaping from the infected, a couple have an argument about who slept with whose girlfriend. There is lots of blood puking and if you’re into bloody infected women fighting each other on the beech this may be your type of film but most will find very typical of most mainstream 21st Century horror.

Unlike many reviewers before me, I actually like CF1 and 2, both in my opinion tapping into the black comedy splatterfest ethos of the likes of Braindead and others of that era (although I'm not elevating them to that kind of status), and perhaps Piranha if you're more familiar with this century's output. CF2 seems to be particularly maligned by a good portion of those that have seen it, so I thought I'd give this one a go considering it seems to split audiences in the same way. The plot doesn't need outlining in detail: a research facility on a remote island runs into problems containing the flesh-eating virus (of the earlier movies) that they're attempting to find a cure to. A bunch of dumb partying teens ('natch) go out to the island (i.e. they won't get a mobile signal) for a stag party only to find themselves dropping victim to the virus one by one (a development that some viewers may be thankful for...). Has potential perhaps.

From the outset of putting the third outing into your disc tray it's fairly clear that the black comedy madness of the first two films has been almost entirely eschewed by virtual newbie film-makers Andrews and Wall in favour of what they probably believe is a grittier, nasty affair. My favourite character (the cop) is also lamentably absent. Sam the hobbit shows up to give it all a bit of credibility, but the teens themselves are unable to give this cash-in anything convincing, as they just appear to be aping the performances of every other dumb-teen actor that you've seen in horror films over the last twenty years or so (unless that's how all American teens naturally are, in which case I forgive them), and the script is just as clichéd (I'm trying to remember some examples but the experience is mercifully fading from my mind).
