Before being sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers and their girlfriends take one last road trip, but when they get into an accident, a terrifying experience will take them to a secluded house of horrors, with a chainsaw-wielding killer.
A team of trainees of the National Guard brings supply to the New Mexico Desert for a group of soldiers and scientists that are installing a monitoring system in Sector 16. They do not find anybody in the camp, and they receive a blurred distress signal from the hills. Their sergeant gathers a rescue team, and they are attacked and trapped by deformed cannibals, having to fight to survive. Written by

Director John Carpenter, another horror icon just like Wes Craven, wrote unproduced horror thriller script titled "Prey" which had plot that was similar to both Wrong Turn (2003) and this film, which was written by Craven and his son. Carpenter described his Prey script, which he wrote with another writer James Nichols years ago, as mix of Deliverance (1972) and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974). The main characters of the script were three young women who go on a trip through the woods in order to get to some mountain but then they are captured by inbred family living in the woods, and just like in this movie the leader (father) of the family wants to use the women as breeders. Eventually the story of the script ended with last surviving woman escaping from the inbred family, the family members hunting after her through the woods and then being killed by her during the hunt and father of the family getting captured and put in jail.

Two years ago an American family crossing the desert took a wrong turn and drove deep into a military area known only as Sector 16. By dawn the next day, half the family had been slaughtered.

THHE2 is entertaining in that you'll laugh a lot and cringe and probably say "oh sh*t!" and "get your face away from the goddamn hole you dumb**s" or things along those lines but I don't know if its really worth seeing- I was very annoyed throughout the entirety with the horrible military characters who don't seem to know the first thing about combat.
Yes there was more violence, gore, and a higher body count than the first one but I am still am debating whether that cancels out my feeling throughout the whole movie about how ridiculous it is (and not a good ridiculousness like Dead Alive or Feast). My time would have been better spent watching Aja's remake for the 5th time.
So go for some laughs, or go for some gore, but don't go hoping to come out of it satisfied.
