Horror movies are by far my favorite thing, so I've decided to make a list with all the ones I…
Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings
These hillbillies are going crazy.
Follows a group of friends that decide to go snowmobiling during their winter break. They make a "wrong turn", getting lost in a storm.
After the risible third film it is amazing the Wrong Turn franchise managed to stretch to a fourth installment (and now fifth!). Yet whilst this prequel is still terrible in almost every department it is an improvement over the previous movie. This fourth film shows the very brief origins of the cannibal mutants, Three-Finger, One-Eye and Saw-Tooth as they run amok in a mental asylum in 1974. Fast Forwarding to 2003 (just before the events of the first film), a new group of dumb sexed-up college students find themselves holed up in the abandoned hospital with the deranged hillbillies for company.
Once again written and directed by Declan O'Brien this is as frustratingly stupid as you’d expect from most fourth…
Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings managed to have less-goofy inbred West Virginia folk but at the same time managed to be incredibly boring and drawn out.
I just have to remind myself, Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines and then I am done with the series.
Part 4 of the franchise...So obviously it's set in space?
Sadly not. Rednecks on the moon would be awesome but here they have gone that other well worn old route...the prequel!
Well, I say prequel but the whole '1974' bit is over before the credits have even rolled, so we are back in familiar territory in the modern day following a gang of sexed up, drunken, pot smoking, annoying dicks et dickettes!
One thing to mildly differ from the norm, surprisingly rarely done by boob hungry horror makers, is we have a lesbian couple thrown in to up the pretty lady count.
So off our teens go into the snow...get lost and have to shelter in a perfectly clean, still…
After the third entry in the Wrong Turn franchise I thought the series was done for. It was an absolutely dreadful viewing experience. I want to watch them all to rank them for an upcoming list, but after that one I was dragging my feet to the next installment. The third one was directed by Declan O'Brien, as is the fourth and fifth entries and I figured, hey, he shit-stained the third movie, he's prolly shit all over the rest he directed.
Well, I'm happy to say that he has redeemed himself with this movie! The third one featured a dark woods that made for an uninteresting locale. They could've shot the same area of the woods for the whole…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
In an effort to squeeze a little extra mileage out of this well-worn franchise, some knob head decided to green light this fourth entry, with the caveat being that this is prequel that apparently tells the story of how the sibling sick fucks came to be so sick as fuck.
The trouble is, it doesn't really explain much at all. All it is really is an excuse to murder horny teenagers inside an abandoned mental hospital instead of in the woods.
It's the same as the others. They make the titular Wrong Turn and then get dismembered, beheaded and skinned alive in progressively gorier ways.
The story is secondary, and the action very predictable. However the gore is rather impressive and quite inventive occasionally, and it's this that receives the lion's share of my rating.
Bloody Beginnings? Bloody shit more like.
Unbelievably, a fifth film was green lit and released last year. Probably by the same knob head.
Prequel time! I'd thought the origin of the mutant cannibal Wrong Turn hillbilly clan was explained just fine in Wrong Turn 2, but they figured, let's make a whole movie out of it. And they largely sidestep the ol' toxic-waste thing and set this thing briefly during the hillbillies' ward-of-the-state childhood, and then for most of the movie, apparently a winter before (or after) the first movie.
A change of scenery might be just what this series needed, but maybe filming it in the vast flatland of Manitoba isn't a very convincing stand-in for West Virginia. (they don't call them "prairiebillies".) Largely a moot point though - most of this is set in a snowed-in, abandoned mental institution.
So after you release a cliche ridden boring movie as the third one in your franchise, is it proper to get together and find the cliches you haven't used and make a fourth one??? For the people making the Wrong Turn series the answer is yes.
For some reason they thought we needed to know where inbred hillbillies come from... except we already know all the backstory we need from the other films. Never at any point did I wonder while watching the first films where the Wrong Turn guys came from, nor does it matter. So we move into the cliche horror prequel territory of Bloody Beginnings, with it's completely original unused hospital setting. Which also really didn't make…
I thought I was watching "Wrong Turn 3," but, instead, got this terrible sequel about some inbred hillbillies killing and eating college kids.
None of the Wrong Turn sequels come close to matching the original but all the sequels follow a pattern that you will either hate or enjoy. This one is pretty good as it has my 2nd favorite inbred cannibalistic family (The Hills Have Eyes is #1). The best part of this sequel is that their meal is pretty much self serve as the victims come right up to the cannibals house this time. A bunch of hot gals. The characters are ok - while I didn't care if they lived or died I didn't dislike any of them. I thought Tenika Davis, Kaitlyn Leeb, were two of the better actors. Decent gore but most of kill EFX are digital. I loved the ending.
This one was the worst™ .
Where are the cannibals getting all that barbed wire?
Extra half star for the somber Nu Metal Wrong Turn song at the end.
The acting is atrocious but has some pretty fun kills in it.
Bloody, but pointless prequel. With some unrelentingly dumb plot twists.
This is the last of the Wrong Turn films I needed to see. Better than part 3 but still not great. Luckily there's less awful cgi and more practical fx. The main flaw is that it takes way too long for the killing to start. The characters in this aren't fun enough to hold the attention for the first 2/3rds of the film. The last third is filled with grue though and finally you get to see these annoying assholes offed. Not the worst of the series but not nearly the best either.
Rating: Zero stars
"...a pointless, implausible and bloody stupid prequel. Not to mention how woodenly acted it was. Need I say more?"
