Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines in the on-going mountain men franchise continues to slash it's way through stupid characters, lame decisions made by the characters, gruesome CGI like deaths and gory galore. It was an average and quite medicorish film which holds and shows corny and cheesy moments throughout the entire film.
Looking back a year from now, I thought Wrong Turn 4 was bad. It wasn't awful but it was average. This film falls back under the ban wagon, nearly going in the same direction that the third film from (2009) did.
I'm not a massive fan of the 3rd and 5th films but I'd rather watch this one over the 3rd, but on the prequel or the classic first two. BUt once again, Declan O' Brien has no idea of what Horror films or Slasher films are. He continues to use horrible CGI effects, wasteful moments which could be great, excessive nudity/gore and a story line which he promises which will be good, accept only holding many plot holes which need to be grand, to create a solid premise throughout. Oh well, after these 3, we can only expect the next sequel or so to be the same if we still have the same creator behind the task.
If you love slasher films and I mean love them, Wrong Turn 5 is definitely up your ally. If you dislike films in this age with it's predictable moments with no suspense, avoid it. I didn't hate it like the 3rd but didn't find it averagely decent like the 4th, but instead just found it Time Wasting Material. I found the characters stupid, the mutants (accept for Three-Finger) looked stupid, everything like i mentioned before (who was going to die, supposed jump scares) was all predictable. I was able to guess this film's every move. The use of CGI in the film is pretty annoying and lastly, it is quite tedious. Another aspect I found disappointing was the story and where the entire story took place. The start, in the dreaded woods was quite promising and then putting it in the town, just stupid! Another element with the hill-billies slaughtering people at a celebration in the year 1817 was also a really stupid element for the director to add in! It never made any sense nor do I think it had anything to do with the hillbillies lives!
The only real prop I can give this film was Doug Bradely. He actually didn't too badly, despite the cheesy, predictable material he was given.
Overall, it's not horrible but it's not great either. I believe that if they continue to have Declan O' Brien behind the camera, the Wrong Turn franchise will continue to be a predictable, no suspense on the gore mess.
5/10. I'd rather watch it than the 3rd one.
