* KarmaHoudini: Winston the Party Cop. He [[IdiotHero repeatedly survives]] encounters with numerous infected people in both movies, most of the time not even being aware of the true danger of the virus or even caring, as he's preoccupied with ''partying''. At the end of both movies, he unknowingly ruins any hope of containment by accidentally spreading the virus ''even further''. He's avoided getting infected so many times that it's quite likely he must have some sort of natural immunity to it.

* SplatterHorror: Naturally, given Roth's enthusiasm for bloodshed in horror movies and the inclusion of a flesh-eating virus. While other horror series may start tame and ramp things up over successive movies, ''Cabin Fever'' starts out over-the-top and stays there.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: The infection ''acts'' like a bacterium - replicating in water without a host, remaining contagious long after a host expires, being inspired by RealLife flesh-eating bacteria - but is ''called'' a virus by the scientists in the prequel. They're completely different types of pathogen, people!

to:

* QuarantineWithExtremePrejudice: The cops and the government try to keep the virus contained---and because it is so lethal, it involves killing anybody unlucky enough to be on the infected area (even if it's a bunch of ''kids''). And every time, the virus still manages to escape...

* NoBodyLeftBehind: Marcy almost completely disappears after meeting her gruesome end. There a bits and pieces of her scattered around the surrounding forrest, but her corpse is nowhere to be found. That dog must've been '''really''' hungry!

** The scene in the hospital where Paul pulls up his gown and discovers some of the symptomatic scabs of the disease is reminisent of the scene at the start of ''Film/{{Aliens}}'' where Ripley pulls back her own hospital gown to reveal a bulge in her belly where an Alien is about to burst out.

* AlanSmithee: Ti West was so unhappy with the sequel that he asked to have his name removed from the film and replaced with Alan Smithee. Since he was not a member of the DGA his request was denied by the producers and he remains credited as the film's director. West has since disowned the final product claiming that it is more a product of the producers and executives than that of his own.

Inspired by many of his favorite horror films, such as ''Franchise/EvilDead'', ''Film/TheTexasChainSawMassacre1974'', and ''Film/TheLastHouseOnTheLeft'', Roth wanted to step away from what he saw as the "[[{{Irony}} watered down]]" studio horror films. Rather, he saw the violence and nudity as essential ingredients of what he saw as a throwback to 80's horror. Roth would later continue down this path with the ''{{Hostel}}'' series.

** Marcy's quote: "...All you want to do is grab the person next to you and fuck the shit out of them because you know you're going to be dead soon anyway." This turns out to be an eerily accurate description of her remaining lifespan. Pretty much all she does after that speech is grab the guy sitting next to her, sleep with him and then die shortly afterwards.
