Wrong Turn 2
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
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.
