... for becoming an actor myself. I have no skill set whatsoever, have
never acted before or starred in anything besides my own life..., i
even was unable to play a rock in our pre-school play because i just
don't have it in me. But still, i am confident and straight-forward in
saying that this movie assures me of my future career as an actor.
Please, directors or whoever fills his days with this crap, contact me
to perform in the next Wrong Turn and it will be at least more
successful then this one...
No... Really... I almost vomited at the acting job... And i'm used to drinking whisky from the bottle...
"Wrong Turn 5" continues the slasher tradition made by the previous
four movies, but this time around the slashing is not just limited to
the characters. The budget for this movie was slashed as well. Although
the production travelled to Bulgaria to film in order to cut costs, the
movie looks real cheap in a number of aspects. The town's street scenes
are obviously a studio back lot, the interior rooms are very obviously
sets, and the make-up for the hillbilly killers looks especially
Further problems can be found in the screenplay. There are a number of plot issues that are murky or are simply not explained at all. The characters also do some really dumb things that I think even real people who are not highly intelligent would do.
As for the ingredients you expect in a movie like this - sex/nudity and gore - well, I admit the movie does score some points in these categories. There's gratuitous sex, and the gory moments get especially squishy at times. That stuff is certainly welcome, but I think even die hard slasher fans will admit that apart from that stuff, the movie doesn't really have that much else to offer that's positive. You'd be better off skipping this entry of the series and putting part 2 back in your DVD player for another run.

I have to start by saying that I did genuinely enjoy the first two
Wrong Turn films,particularly the first. The third was in all honesty
one of the worst movies I've ever seen,(definitely in my top 5-and I've
seen Plan 9 From Outer Space!). The fourth part of the trilogy was a
minor improvement on its predecessor but sadly WT5 brings us right back
to the abysmal standard of 3.
The plot consists of this ; A small West Virginia Town is hosting the legendary Mountain Man Festival on Halloween, where crowds of costumed party-goers gather for a wild night of music and mischief. However, Lo and behold, Three Finger and his inbred family of hill-billies decide to treat themselves to a blood soaked feeding frenzy. This involves a group of visiting 'college kids'(who incidentally all look the wrong side of 30).
Initially, I thought the plot was fairly well thought out and had the potential to work. However, it doesn't work, the acting is medioace at best, despite the best efforts of the mostly British cast.For a start their accents slip a few too many times, with Roxanne Mckee being the most culpable. The cardboard cut-out sets, would look more at home in a 1960s Spaghetti Western (I found the exterior of the Sheriff Station especially funny). Those hoping that Doug Bradley (a name well known in the horror genre) would save the film will be sorely disappointed as his character comes across as frankly irritating and misogynistic. As silly as this may sound he just seems to repeat the same few sentences about "his boys coming to save him" on a loop for about 60 minutes. The complete lack of realism in virtually every part of the film ranges from being laughable to actually quite frustrating. For instance, for a Town celebrating a festival it seemed to be pretty dead (no pun intended). The hill-billies simply would not have had time to concoct such elaborate deaths for certain victims and still be on constant watch at the Sheriff station. The often ridiculous decisions made by the characters are beyond belief, on occasions, they are in mortal danger, however they choose to leave their weapons behind and walk into blatant traps. To cap it all, the funniest (unintentionally so) part of the film, is the complete indestructibility of the mutants who are variously stabbed in the neck, shot in the chest and shot in the leg. They carry on regardless and seem completely unaffected and never sustain any visible injuries.
The only small plus point for me was the laudable performance from Camilla Arfwedson, who despite not exactly looking like your average small Town Sheriff did a decent enough job with what she was given and you couldn't help but be on her side at least to some degree. Overall though, this film really was dire from start to finish and the wooden script did it no favours either. Its also important to note that even with a few "gory" kills there is no real suspense or engagement,it is in no way scary which I would assume is a fairly vital component for a horror movie.
Personally, I am beginning to lose faith with the WT franchise a little due to the once menacing mutants becoming quite comical characters and the sheer lack of investment in the production values of the films since Declan O'Brien took the helm after WT2. I think it may be time for an official reboot but I really cant see it happening. Anyway I rate this movie 2/10 and I think that may be slightly generous.
In Fairlake, West Virginia, there is a festival during the Halloween
called Mountain Man Festival. A group of college students hits the
patriarch Maynard (Doug Bradley) of a hillbilly cannibal family on the
road and they are arrested with Maynard by Sheriff Angela (Camilla
Arfwedson). Soon his boys assault the Sheriff Station in a night of
"Wrong Turn 5" is a stupid, annoying and unfunny collection of clichés. The characters are irritating and take the most imbecile attitude as possible. The town has a festival but it seems to be a ghost town. The story might have worked with humor, but the heavy hand of director Declan O'Brien makes a forgettable garbage. My vote is one (awful).
Title (Brazil): "Pânico na Floresta 5" ("Panic in the Florest 5")
As a fan of the Wrong turn movies (first and second), I was surprised
that there was a 5th of the series that was released (I only found out
yesterday while I was on the internet)...
To my interest I had to watch this version also. I honestly do not get why Declan O'Brien keeps experimenting with the wrong turn series... I mean he really messed it up from the 3rd, 4th wasn't any better but a 5th one ???
Really ???? The setting and the acting are both bad and don't have any intense to it (apart from the gory deaths). I think Declan O'Brien is making these just so that he could express his love for different gory deaths .....;;;
And why are the characters so dumb in Declan O'Brien versions of the Wrong turn series ????... honestly....
Declan O'Brien has pretty much destroyed the heart pumping, terrifying Wrong Turn franchise with his absurd sequels, WT3 is an exception though. First thing that's wrong with this is that someone gets slaughtered within in the first five minutes. Where is the build up of suspense or story development? The acting is obscene. The only decent performance is Camilla Arfwedson as 'Sheriff Angela'. However the gore/death moments are the same cheesy nonsense from the rest of O' Brien's sequels. I was honestly laughing through a lot of the movie. There is no horror. No suspense. No memorable performances or moments. Just another lame slasher flick. Stop producing sequels. How in the hell is this supposed to be respectable horror?!??
I've seen a lot of horror movies, but this one is one of the worst. The plot is pretty typical of low budget film. I mean come on. We live in 21st century and you actually believe that some three retarded men can slaughter so many people in the middle of some town and get away with it? How can you make a film like this? There were guns, cars and everything else and yet they all died. BS. History also repeats again and there's not a drop of realism in what is filmed. Personally, I think the money spent on shooting this thing are thrown away and honestly I'm so sorry for wasting almost two hours of my life watching this "movie". My advice: Not worth your money, you will definitely be disappointed!

Worst Movies of 2012 just got their new number one.I honestly thought
after WT 4 they would stop making this movie or maybe invest more and
make it better. But I guess they just made another Halloween flick.
Talking about the teenage group I think they don't reflect today's
American stupidity and disorganization I mean please you got guns you
had cars you had 5 people who could shoot guns and still all of them
slaughtered like a pigs. Sheriff - I think if i did not know better
about women officers i would say that this shows how women cant do
men's job. Why the hell gun had only 5 bullets ? she shot it 3 or 4
times at the truck in the middle of the movie and then at the end one
shot and thats it empty .... screen writing if BAD cast is AWFUL,
potato has more acting skills.
Don't RENT IT , Don't GO TO SEE IT , NOT WORTH YOUR MONEY, HONEST PILE OF BS.
I found Wrong Turn a solid re-invention of the "rural horror"
established in the '70s by films such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
and The Hills Have Eyes; but I would have never imagined it would
become a semi-successful franchise with four straight-to-DVD sequels,
and with an alignment of villains destined to take a modest place in
the gallery of famous cinematographic monsters. But here we are, 9
years after the first film, watching Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines and
hoping it will continue the decent tendency of Wrong Turn 4: Bloody
Beginnings...or fearing it will return to the boredom of Wrong Turn 3:
Left for Dead. Unfortunately, Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines ended up being
the worst film of the franchise.
The premise of this saga has never been particularly original (a trio of deformed cannibal brothers killing tourists invading their territory), but in Wrong Turn, Wrong Turn 2: Dead End and Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings, it was handled with enough ingenuity in order to offer entertaining doses of visceral horror which didn't insult the audience's intelligence. Unfortunately, the screenplay of Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines is mostly composed of rampant stupidity and narrative incoherences. I initially thought that the music festival subject pretended to expand the story and bring a huge group of potential victims to the cannibals...however, screenwriter Declan O'Brien (who was also the director) abandoned the concept after 20 minutes, focusing the attention on half a dozen of insipid characters, while the "hundreds" of young people filling the streets are evaporated without any explanation.
Besides, none of the kills executed by the villains make any sense in the context of the film. Why do the cannibals spend so much time and effort preparing such exotic executions, when it had previously been established that they only kill in order to eat? The screenplay never explains satisfactorily that change of behaviour, and I only think that O'Brien wanted to take the franchise to "the next level", but lacked of the imagination, resources and justification in order to achieve it. At least, I have to say that the practical effects of latex and artificial blood are well done.
The cast from Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines brings horrible performances, with the exceptions of Doug Bradley and Camila Arfwedson, who both managed to bring appropriate performances despite how poorly written their characters were. In conclusion, this is a totally tedious horror film, and I suggest you not to waste your time and your money on it.

OK, here we go. As horror fans we all would watch a Wrong Turn film
even if was a Wrong Turn 17. Well let's just hope and pray that Wrong
Turn 5 will be the last of the franchise, because this film has
completely and totally destroyed any chances of any other wrong turn
film becoming a hit or successful. Doug Bradley was so bad in this film
that I felt bad for him knowing he's a horror icon. Bradley's acting
was ridiculous, there were times in the film where he must've had a
flashback and thought he was 'Pin Head', because I swear Bradley
sounded like he was talking in his Pinhead voice?!...with quick puns
and quotes even. Also, he was supposed to be the father of the 3 inbred
mutant hillbillies, but why for the love all things sacred was he
talking with a slight British accent?! The 3 mutant hillbillies were
suppose to be the same three from WT4, but if you ask me, 2 of em
shrunk down in size?! And the skinny mutant looked like he took great
care of his hair, because it was long and flowing...lol. The make-up on
these three were amateurish and at one point in the film I thought I
seen one of the mutant's teeth slip out of place?! In my opinion the
only one who took the acting gig serious was Camilla Arfwedson (who
plays Sheriff Angela). But these fools even made her look
ridiculous...why and how?...well because she is a small framed female,
but these dummies used a (stunt) MAN dressed in her Sheriff's costume
to break a glass store front door with the butt of a shotgun?! Other
stupidity included having the gorgeous Roxanne McKee in love making and
shower scenes and not show any sort of traditional horror film
nudity?!...what a waste. But maybe she knew this film was going to be
crap and didn't want to waste her delectable assets on something this
bad....in that case, smart girl.
Lastly...where's all the people of the town?!...You can not tell me that EVERY single one of the townsfolk went to the festival?! Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines, is hands down the worst of the franchise, so see it at your own risk.
