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.

The premise of this awaited sequel was really good and after the huge success of the remake I expected a lot sincerely.
The sad truth is that this movie is really absurd and inept. The situations are dumb and beyond reason and the acting is truly awful.
This time there aren't likable characters or violins unlike the remake. Also, the gore is not that abundant and when it happens it's truly bad.
The violence is minimal and it's a shame because there are many arguments that make you think that there's room for heavy violence. I mean, there's a SWAT team that is hunting a family of cannibal mutants. You surely expect something different! When I watched it on the movies I wanted my money back.
Anyways this is a clear example of how rushed out movies turn out to be a mess and demonstrate poor quality on all aspects.
A mess that let down the fans of the remake like me. That's why sequels are never welcomed; at least this movie isn't as terrible as the 1985 sequel to the original.
