Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
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…
Yikes. Not even the entertaining ending and good lighting can save this cheap entry in a cheap but usually (emphasis on usually) fun franchise.
To paraphrase the review on Blu-ray.com: "Adds nothing new to the Wrong Turn franchise. Except for snowmobiles and lesbians."
It's weird, I seem to be mildly against the consensus here, in that I preferred part 3 to this one. I abhor prequels, so perhaps that accounts for my strong(er) dislike of this film. Although I typically only hate prequels when I'm already invested in the story being prequel-ized, and here that's not really a problem as there ARE no great Wrong Turn movies.
Part of it could simply be Wrong Turn fatigue. I did watch Part 3 immediately prior to watching this one, so that's a distinct possibility. At any rate, there's only 2 left. Why they keep making these,…
During his run as the helmer of three WRONG TURN movies, director Declan O'Brien unfortunately never brought as enjoyable returns as his predecessors, Rob Schmidt and Joe Lynch. Usually, they follow a pattern: they begin with a great, splattery opening, but they ultimately peter out, although I have to admit, I'm fond of WRONG TURN 5: BLOODLINES.
WRONG TURN 4: BLOODY BEGINNINGS, however, could be the worst of his three. This one's actually a prequel, where we learn about the origin of the creepy clan and learn that they were the inhabitants of an asylum. Once they get free, the trio stage a DR. GIGGLES-style riot, slaughtering a staff with the help of the other inmates.
Years later, a group…
I tried. It was shit. I gave up. When you're watching a lesbian scene and you're thinking "this is boring!" - there's something seriously wrong with the film!!!!
The 4th Installment of the notoriously famous Wrong Turn saga starts with an out of control orgy of bloody violence, showing things, you just want to shut your eyes, but in a good way. Unlike the previous two sequels Bloody Beginnings takes his story seriously and excludes the humor most of the time. So we have moments to be shocked, to be scared and to be disgusted. The SFX are surprisingly strong considering the low budget. The atmosphere is very spooky although the setting is nothin' new for a genre affine lover and the misplaced sex-scenes seem unnecessary. But all in all Bloody Beginnings is the best Wrong Turn next to its original from 2003. Such a shame that the parts 2,3 and 5 were a pile of shit.
It was fun, gory, and entertaining... but it also pissed me off. Lol. I know horror movies almost always feature characters who make the dumbest decisions, but these characters make some REALLY dumb decisions. And what's with the 30-something actors with Justin Bieber haircuts? Woof. Oh, well... Time for the (for now) final installment.!
I'm actually going to give this an extra half a star from my last review as I enjoyed it a lot more this time round. Production-wise this is a big step up from the terrible part three and, although there's not a lot to it, it is a fairly fun redneck cannibal slasher that delivers some good gore and nudity, although the mutant's face-masks are a little obvious and plastic-looking.
På tal om stendumt beteende... Wrong Turn 4 är en sån där film där karaktärerna är så obegåvade att man bara hoppas på att de snart går en ond bråd död till mötes. På den punkten sviker i alla fall inte filmen, men för alla andra punkter gör man nog bäst i att se något annat.
Is it sad to say that this wrong turn film Is my favorite one in the whole series?
Yes, I think it is wrong to say that, I'm a sucker for loving the lesser known and liked sequel in a franchise, 's just the way I roll when it comes to horror movies to be quite honest. I liked the cast as they aren't known but they do the best they can anyway, I mean I'm not a huge fan of this franchise as always but it's good. I give the cast big credit and it had good directing, I give it a a four because it was fun to watch when it really should not be. I like how these movies carry on differently from the one previously, and this franchise could go on for a while if they came up with new twist and turns.
Really good kill scene involving hanging and lots of blood falling down on guy. Acting was horrible! Story was awful, full of cliche's of mental hospital. Wanted bad actors to die as we did not like the characters, but they stayed alive until the bitter end. Best story part was frozen girl revealed to us the audience a few feet from the road/freedom.
Very slow beginning never picked up.
