The Crazies (2010, dir. Breck Eisner)

A viral outbreak in a small Iowa town leads to a zombie-like infection and a military lockdown. Effective and well-sustained remake of the 1973 George Romero flick of the same name. Cynical, paranoid and subversive within its now-familiar genre framework.

Cabin Fever (2016, dir. Travis Z)

Five students rent a cabin in the woods and become exposed to a flesh-eating contagion. One splendid Grand Guignol moment aside, this is a duff remake of a not-especially-good recent horror, ticking off all the cliches TheĀ Cabin In The Woods subverted.

Cooties (2014, dir. Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott)

Teachers are held under siege when their summer-school pupils contract a deadly virus. Serviceable horror-comedy which gets some mileage out of a game cast and script, and from its gleeful approach to child-centric gore.
