3.0 out of 5 stars Wrong Turn 2
I can see there's some adverse reviews about this movie, but honestly, come on guys, what were you expecting, Hamlet? It's a reworking of the same story about mad cannibals running about the place grunting at each other and gnawing on human thigh bones. On that level it delivers. Same part of the world, same cannibals, just different city types getting munched, well...

I can see there's some adverse reviews about this movie, but honestly, come on guys, what were you expecting, Hamlet? It's a reworking of the same story about mad cannibals running about the place grunting at each other and gnawing on human thigh bones. On that level it delivers. Same part of the world, same cannibals, just different city types getting munched, well obviously. This time it's a Big Brother type survival show set in the woods just after the nuclear bomb drops. I did laugh when one of the contestants finds a bit of meat roasting in the woods and decides to tuck in, yummy. Oh my god, it turns out not all of the ingredients on that stick and their relevant carbohydrate ratings have been clearly marked. In fact it's one of the other contestants!! Are Americans really that devoted to eating? Anyway, if you're a horror fan, this is well worth adding to your collection.

This review is from: Wrong Turn 2: Dead End - Extreme Edition (Uncut) [2007] [DVD] (DVD)
This is an enjoyable first sequel to the stand out horror film Wrong Turn.
A group of 6 twenty-something individuals head into the secluded woodlands of West Virginia to take part in the pilot for a TV reality gameshow, along the lines of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here. During the next 5 days the good-looking contestants have to battle against the elements in a simulated wasteland, to see who is the ultimate survivor and win the $100,000 first prize. The host of the gameshow is a burly, gung ho, muscle-bound ex-Marine fellow named Colonel Dale Murphy.
What they don't know, is that they're filming the competition in the middle of woods which are home to a family of in-bred, ultra-violent cannibal killers, maniacs who don't take kindly to uninvited visitors and welcome them with extreme prejudice. What follows then is an extremely violent battle for survival as the competitors take arms against the hostile attentions of the flesh-eating hillbillies.
This is a competent horror flick, and although it never quite reaches the heights of its exceptional predecessor, it's a solid enough and very watchable scary movie. The scenes of horror are brutal and the malformed rednecks are effective bad guys. What largely distinguishes this film from Wrong Turn, is that the lead characters in the earlier movie were highly likeable, whereas in this film, the gameshow contestants are pretty unpleasant and it's hard to care about what happens to them, except perhaps the Rambo-esque Colonel Murphy. Although this is a significant drawback, it doesn't make the film any the less entertaining, but it does mean that it lacks the high degree of tension which helped to make the original Wrong Turn such a brilliant horror movie. All in all, this is a good 3.5 star movie, which pales a bit by comparison with its masterful predecessor, but which, judged on its own merits, is a slightly better than average horror film.
Thank you for taking the time to read this review.

6)The original script involved the two surviving characters of the first movie returning. This idea was later scrapped when they decided to make a DTV sequel entry.

What's The Story.
Six contestants led by the headstrong Nina Papas assemble in the desolate woodlands of West Virginia to take part in the latest US reality show, Over the next five days they must battle against the elements in a simulated wasteland to see who will emerge the ultimate survivor & pocket the $100,000 first prize.

But the participants are soon fighting for survival in even deadlier game when they encounter a family of flesh-hungry mutants intent of having them for dinner...

Timelord Thoughts.
Wrong Turn 2: Dead End is a sequel that actually improves upon the first movie & manages to keep you entertained with some clever twist & imaginative gory kills that brings back two of the cannibals from the first movie & introduces some new horrific characters to the family of creepy inbreeding freaks.

Director Joe Lynch keeps the nail biting chills coming at a fast & furious pace who doesn't let up until the glorious-gory conclusion as the plot sees 6 contestants participating in a survival reality gameshow which soon becomes a fight for survival against the blood thirsty cannibals that inhabits the woods & see the contestants as their prey.

Henry Rollins is a little over the top as Colonel Dale Murphy who thinks he's part John Rambo but Erica Leerhsen gives a believable, bitchy but likeable performance as Nina Pappas who's a character you root for to survive.

The body count is higher, the kills are much gorier & more inventive & the movie contains plenty of jump scares & gruesome chilling moments that should more than satisfy horror fans.

Wrong Turn 2:Dead End is a far superior sequel that features decent performances by the cast, gory inventive kills & nailbiting heart pounding tension & is superb sequel to the original movie that's well worth a watch.

Timelord Rating.
8/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Wrong Turn 2 Is Right For Me!,, 25 Dec. 2007
Hey all! I had low expectations what with the reality tv theme and all (We saw that in Halloween: Resurrection remember?) but I wanted to see the movie anyway b/c it had gotten some favourable reviews on other sites. Boy was I in for a fun ride! From start to finish this movie was action packed... The acting wasn't so bad, I actually thought it was pretty good. The plot wasn't too deep, but good enough. The violence and gore kept you on edge - In my opinion it was the "fun" horror gore, not the disturbing Saw-type gore. There's a difference! You also don't know who's going to live/die until the very end - It's hard to establish who the "main" character is until that point - Which sort of goes with their reality TV who-will-win? thing... Well worth renting if not buying... Check this one out! I gave this film 5 stars b/c it held up very well for a straight to DVD horror sequel (Look at I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer -- Horrible movie!). A cut above the rest!

4.0 out of 5 stars old school gore, 8 Nov. 2007
This review is from: Wrong Turn 2: Dead End - Extreme Edition (Uncut) [2007] [DVD] (DVD)
Take a horrid collection of celebrity wannabees, dump them in a forest as part of a reality survival show and... oops! Did I forget to mention a family of hillbilly inbred mutants who live there? Any way mix well and massacre with loads of really top blood letting f/x. I'm a Celebrity Disembowel Me! It's all really good fun 'cos you want them all TO DIE! Enjoy.

Curiously watchable. The sort of film you could almost write a review on without actually seeing it as you instinctively know it's not going to push any boundaries in film making or horror and will invariably be heavily influenced by and derivative of much more original and superior films of its type.
Having said that what 'Wrong Turn 2' does it mostly does well. Quite gore laden, the characters weren't as irritating as they first appeared and in any case didn't hang around long enough to outstay their welcome. There was a back story about a survivalist reality tv show of which the cast of this film were participants or crew, providing an adequate excuse as to how they came to be in the heavily forested backwoods of West Virginia. The special effects team went to town on the prosthetics of the murderous inbred hillbillies, rendering them looking faintly ridiculous; but what they lacked in good dentistry and good looks they made up for with exceptional strength and being impervious to being struck by vehicles.
Some of the deaths were really quite good. I wavered quite a lot on WT2's merits whilst watching it but it is the type of film to sit back and let it wash over you, admiring the neat axe work, mincing machines and vat loads of blood on display. I watched one of the extras showing the planning of some of the slayings and it came across, as it did while watching the film, how much fun everyone seemed to be having. I look forward to seeing the commentary at some point with Henry Rollins who put in a good turn.
Not disimilar to and certainly no less brainless than 'Frontiers' a French horror that on average scores higher than this. If you liked the first Wrong Turn and more or less can guess what to expect with this you may like it; if you didn't like the first or have intelligence as a prerequisite for your horrors, best look elsewhere.

This review is from: Wrong Turn 2: Dead End - Extreme Edition (Uncut) [2007] [DVD] (DVD)
One Wrong Turn deserves another we hear so it was no surprise when the sequel was made to the grisly first. This one announced it's gore credentials early doors when the wannabee actress in the Mustang took a wrong turn (D'oh!) and ended up doing the splits courtesy of a forest dwellers axe. Nice. We are shortly on the location of "Survivor" a great new reality show where a mixed bag of fame hungry but pesky kids are let loose in the woods to er...survive but it's not as easy as they thought.

It's not long before the muties show their hand and start removing those (and everything else) of anyone unfortunate enough to cross their path. The plot was a real "back of a fag packet" job which is a pity as the director could have used the "is this part of the game?" scenario to greater effect rather than launch into the out and out survival campaign with 15 minutes of the opening. The marine instructor show host goes a bit Rambo and provides decent opposition but eventually succumbs to the freaky family onslaught as do half a dozen or so others before there's "trouble at mill" in the claret soaked finale.

If you've seen the (better) first WT you'll know what to expect and that does reduce the shock value somewhat but if you like plenty of axe-play with some TNT and "bows and arrers" (sic) thrown in for good measure, this is the one for you. It's nasty and not very clever but it's not bad in a guilty pleasure kind of way.

Don't buy it for your nan.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Wrong Turn" (1, 2 and 3) on BLU RAY - Compatibility Issues With The 'US' Discs…, 16 Mar. 2014

Fans should note that the 'American' 20th Century Fox BLU RAY of the horror flicks "Wrong Turn" and its 2 and 3 sequels ("Dead End' and "Left For Dead") are all REGION A LOCKED.

None will play on our UK machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' (which few are).

The 1st film is available as a ‘UK’ release – but 2 and 3 are not.

Check your machines Region Coding before buying any of them…

I really like the first wrong turn film and was looking forward to this sequel,I think that it wasn't as good as the first film but sequels very rarely are.Some scenes just didn't need to be in the film,there was the usual very gory scenes but no real scary scenes.Overall not bad but nowhere near as good as the first film.See it if you enjoyed the first film but for an film in it's own right not brilliant.

1.0 out of 5 stars What happened?, 1 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Wrong Turn 2: Dead End - Extreme Edition (Uncut) [2007] [DVD] (DVD)
I really enjoyed the first 'Wrong Turn' movie, it was an entertaining and gory slasher flick which paid real homage to 70's horror classics such as 'The Texas Chain Saw Massacre', 'The Hills Have Eyes' and backwoods thrillers like 'Deliverance' and 'Southern Comfort'.
'Wrong Turn 2' on the other hand is shockingly bad. Aside from featuring a cannibalistic clan living in the backwoods similarities with the first film end there. The storyline is idiotic, the acting is amateurish and is nothing short of real bargain bin B-Movie fodder.
Overall this is an is embarrassingly bad film and while horror sequels can often be poor, this is exceptionally bad.
If you're looking for a decent old school slasher movie try Adam Green's 'Hatchet'.
