Wrong Turn but a Right Buy Box Set
on 8 May 2014
The box set cotains five DVDs covering films 1-5 [all the current versions] each in its own slimline case so shelf space is dramatically redued. Each disc also comes with a variable number of ;special features ;Running time varies between 84 to 96 minutes depending on the movie being viewed. Given the number of films its difficult to give a short review that isn;t too general.
The films all share certain characteristics, eaxh basic story involves a small group of people being hunted, stalked, trapped and often eaten by a family or group of canabalistic mutants, The manner of death is often highly original and is always varied from person to person. Some of the characters may survive, but most don't. These films are definately of the gore variety and the pace is never slow. They all keep the attention and will appeal to a wide range of horror fans. There are many gruesome scences and some of the topics covered can be a little unsettling to some viewers.
The sound and picture quality is all very good but the acting can be a little hit and miss in places whilst the script is sometimes contradictory or just weak in places. The great overall entertainment value pulls this set to a 4 star and at the current £3 a disc its great value for money. If you can get it cheaper [even second-hand]-go for it. This set should be in every horror fans collection. Well worth it.
