With college season here for most, I’ve put together a number of “bad time” party movies that showcase what happens when partying hard turns into hard times for everyone.

8. Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever (2009)

Cast: Giuseppe Andrews, Noah Segan, Alexi Wasser, and Marc Senter
Director: Ti West
Runtime: 86 Minutes
Rating: R
Rotten Tomatoes

He may have redefined his career with the one-two punch of X and Pearl in 2022, but Ti West’s debut in the director’s chair came with a direct-to-video sequel for Cabin Fever that follows a group of teenagers preparing for their high school prom unknowingly in the midst of a deadly outbreak. Living up to the gruesome gross-out standards of its predecessor, Cabin Fever 2redefines the concept of “worst prom ever.”

13. Body (2015)

Two young women look mystified at their friend in a large mansion

Cast: Helen Rogers, Alexandra Turshen, Lauren Molina, and Larry Fessenden
Director: Dan Berk & Robert Olsen
Runtime: 75 Minutes
Rating: Not Rated
Rotten Tomatoes

From the filmmakers behind Significant Other and VillainsBody surrounds a trio of young women who decide to party at a secluded mansion belonging to a nearby babysitting client, but find themselves in a moral quandary when they accidentally paralyze the groundskeeper. This macabre movie is a lean and mean one, which is ultimately bolstered beyond its fairly by-the-numbers narrative framing by outstanding performances and confident direction.
