Wrong Turn 5
The final two Wrong Turn
movies (so far) are largely forgettable movies, both
make radical changes to the lazy mythology the fourth
movie attempted, both rather pointlessly.
Bloodlines adds a fatherly figure for the hillbillies,
played by Doug Bradley of Pinhead fame, a nasty piece
of work who has the added bonus of not being a freak,
so he can blend in far easier. A bunch of young people
are the target of the hillbillies as always, this time
going to a local music festival where people dress up
as hillbillies. Ah yes, now we're getting meta.
Anyway, after a planned attack on the young people is
thwarted, the fatherly figure is arrested and it turns
out he's been on the most wanted list for 30 years.
But he knows that his boys will come and get him and
murder everyone in their path (or just anyone,
really). While the fatherly figure is locked up, he
laughs deviously or sprouts off about what he's going
to do to the women. You can take a guess what.
Possibly the dumbest and maybe even the most hateful
of the series with the women copping the worst of it,
Doug Bradley is utterly revolting in a way that makes
his Pinhead seem gentle. It takes forever for the
hillbillies to get to the police station where the
fatherly figure is locked up, even when they spend a
fair amount of time just outside the place. They also
manage to track down the teens they were thwarted from
killing without knowing anything about their plans.
The ambush of the town drunk inexplicably takes place
on an outbound highway despite being outside the
police station, where he was locked up for the last
Just a bad movie, the Declan O'Brien trilogy are the
worst of the series.
