Dumb but not much fun,
This review is from: Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I think it is safe to say the first Wrong Turn is easily the best and this installment doesn't change that..This one starts with a flashback of a mental asylum and all its inbred inmates. They escape and kill everyone at which point we are then forwarded to the present day. A group of horny 20 somethings go on a skiing trip to a cabin somewhere during a heavy snowfall but they take a wrong turn (surprise) and end up at the aformentioned mental institute...
To be honest there are some ok deaths here (the highlight being a somewhat hard to watch dinner scene involving a somehow conscious victim) but thats about the only thing going for it other than the often cheesy dialogue. The acting is for the most part pretty bad and very contrived and the actions of the group are often beyond stupid. e.g. at one point they manage to capture the inbred crew and, despite having seen their friends brutally tortured and killed by these freaks, one of the girls (who saw her fiance butchered to death no less) persuades the others to let them live! Unreal. They also of course do the usual "lets split up and get killed" thing that you would expect and the final scene is petty ridiculous but you might find it funny.
I wouldn't call it completely awful for what it is. It's a very predictable slasher film, far from the best, but it might be worth a rental if you enjoyed the previous films. You might get some enjoyment from it. Not much though, there is only one standout scene and it isn't half as much fun as the original.
