The Cannibals are back for Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines
When the original Wrong Turn hit theaters, who would have thought it would have spawned 4 sequels? Ask any horror fan and they aren't surprised as this series has everything needed for a franchise. The last entry went back to deliver a prequel story and worked pretty well. The latest entry Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines plays as a sequel to part 4 continuing on the prequel storyline.
Wrong Turn 5 follows a group of college kids visiting a small town for the Mountain Man Festival, but their thoughts of fun are thwarted quickly when a family of inbred cannibals unleash and onslaught of violence to get back one of their own. Much like every film series this one has had its ups and downs, but one thing you can always count on is the excessive gore and nudity. This entry sticks to the formula and has no shortage in the gore department sporting some creative and graphic kills. The story itself is pretty simple and works, but felt a bit forced. Maybe it was due to the last entry working so unexpectedly well, but this one felt a bit lower budget. The acting is pretty bad to average throughout which is really no surprise, with the exception of Hellraiser's own Doug Bradley stepping in to lead the charge. He gives this film the missing punch to help keep it limping along without completely falling apart. The make-up job on the cannibal brothers looked pretty bad this time around and could be the biggest issue taking away the creepy realism that it needed to work on a bigger scale.
Clearly this is far from a perfect film, but in these types of films you expect certain things, killing, gore, and nudity and it delivers. If you enjoyed any of the other films in the series or just the rage of cannibalistic hillbillies then you will surely have a fun time with this movie.
