Restored Archive Review, Originally Posted on 8/17/07
Director Joe Lynch has said that he intended Wrong Turn 2: Dead End as a homage to the early-’80s splatter sequels, but he has one advantage today that the makers of those films didn’t back then: the unrated DVD release. That has given him license to enthusiastically throw around blood by the bucketful, easily outdoing the original film on the splatter score; Lynch and his cohorts (including makeup FX supervisor Bill Terezakis) even find a way to top the first Turn’s arrow-in-the-eye highlight gag. The material may be familiar and none too surprising, but Lynch punches it across with all the energy of a longtime hardcore horror fan getting the chance to let it all hang out in his debut feature. You can tell he loves this stuff.
The narrative framework for all the bloodshed is the latest in the long recent line of reality-shows-gone-bad stories, »

Alex Boling and Larry Sullivan
Up until now most of us probably knew ABC Family's The Secret Life of the American Teenager as "that one where Molly Ringwald has the pregnant kid". But we just got word that tonight's episode features two gay characters as a part of the central episode plot.
In tonight's episode, pregnant teen Amy Juergens (I'm not even kidding - I swear) is presented with a couple to potentially adopt her unborn kid. Apparently Brad and Angelina were unavailable, but Amy's father, George Juergens (sorry, I can't get over that name!) thinks that his gay coworker and his hubby might be the perfect adoptive 'rents.
As far as the gays go (who are Not named Juergens, from what I can tell), they're played by Alex Boling (who plays Donovan) and Larry Sullivan (who plays Leon), whom you may recognize from the gay flick The Trip. »
