Retired military commander Colonel Dale Murphy hosts the simulated post-apocalyptic reality show where participants are challenged to survive a remote West Virginia wasteland. But the show turns into a nightmarish showdown when each realizes they are being hunted by an inbred family of cannibals determined to make them all dinner! Written by
A group of reality show contestants and the show's producers find themselves fighting for their own survival against hideously deformed cannibal hillbillies who plan on making them all their dinner. Yes, this is the plot of Wrong Turn 2. However, believe it or not, the whole reality show sub-plot is actually better than it sounds, and thanks to the clever writers, it vanishes 30 minutes into the movie. Speaking of which, I have to say I was pretty satisfied with the end result since Wrong Turn 2 to my surprise turned out to be the best horror flick of 2007 I've seen. Think that's not saying much since 28 Weeks Later and Grindhouse were the only solid releases? Well, ahm, for a little direct-to-video flick that surpasses all expectations one might have - that's really, really good. Not saying that this is the best genre offering since Halloween, but as an enjoyable, pure fun and gory Slasher film, the flick just delivers.
Have to say I was impressed with Mr Lynch's direction as well, since this was unbelievably his first ever motion picture project. The cast is also truly impressing for a DTV title; Rollins kicks ass as always (and sadly gets his ass kicked), the Palladino girl is even better than in Sidney Lumet's films, and once more Erica Leerhsen impresses even more and shows how very underrated she is, the woman should get more roles. The kills are effective and simple, the story ridiculous and enjoyable, and the flick is pure fun. Not brainy, not serious, just some great Slasher fun.
Worth your money.
