Johnny's comments:

Yep, I'm going through the Wrong Turn series of movies, none of which I had watched before and with today's update I'll be going through the two best in the series, but that's not saying much. Been trying to do this for quite a while, so it's good to finally get around to it.

The Wrong Turn series is basically a bunch of young people go to the mountains for some fun and come across a family of deformed murderous hillbilly cannibals and try to survive but they usually don't. That's pretty much all 6 movies in a nutshell, it's definitely the plot of the first two. The first movie actually got a cinema release, did OK, enough for them to become a straight-to-DVD series. Wrong Turn is actually OK, there's a nastiness to it but compared to the rest of the series, it is actually fairly restrained and at least tries to be a serious survivalist horror movie. It does end with some predictability with who survives but it's not without a fight.

The second movie, Dead End, is about the hillbillies causing mayhem on the contestants and crew of a Reality TV show that is filming in their hills. This movie feels like it has it's tongue firmly in its cheek with some somewhat comical deaths and Henry Rollins as the host of the show who makes it his mission to kill all the hillbillies is a bit of fun. It's also far more violent than the original, in fact if it wasn't done with tongue-in-cheek, it would be quite ugly. Also the first in the series to have nudity with the ever reliable Crystal Lowe providing a brief look at her breasts before being slaughtered by a jealous hillbilly wife who makes sure her pervy man knows who's boss. I wish this tone would've remained for the rest of the series but as you will see in the coming days, Wrong Turn takes a well, wrong turn into some of the most hateful shit seen in recent movies.
