Storyline

Follows a group of friends that decide to go snowmobiling during their winter break. They make a "wrong turn", getting lost in a storm, and seek shelter in an abandoned sanatorium. They are completely isolated by the storm and are thankful they can get out of the elements. But the sanatorium has a troubled past, and some of its former patients still reside there and are not happy about the intrusion. In a deadly game of cat and mouse, the college kids must fight to survive the night. Written by Tristan Williams

Daniel: [holding a notebook and a picture] Guys, guys, look at this. This is the guy that attacked Claire on the balcony. It says they were violent, mentally, physically deformed, and, uh, showed signs of cannibalism.
Bridget: How did they survive out here?
Kyle: They're hunters, and now they're hunting us! They'll eat anything; fuck, they probably turned Porter into a porterhouse by now!

The Fine Young Cannibals strike again
24 May 2012 | by CoventrySee all my reviews

I shamelessly admit I rather like the "Wrong Turn" franchise… They're 100% derivative and forgettable, but – so far at least – each and every installment delivered brainless, unpretentious entertainment. What's the point of systematically bad-mouthing these films here via user comments when you know you rent something that is called "Wrong Turn 4" and thus ought to know from beforehand that it won't be a cinematic masterpiece. They can make another hundred sequels, for all I care, and most likely I will also keep watching them whenever I'm in an undemanding mood to see extreme gore, gratuitous nudity and idiotic plot spotting. Contrary to popular belief, there are still ambitious and intelligent filmmakers trying to come up with creative new horror concepts, and if you look a bit further than your nearest Blockbuster video store, you will easily find those as well. You can debate endlessly on why "inferior" movies like this one are wider available than the others, or you can simply ignore them. Either way, slinging mud at them on the Internet won't prevent them from getting made. Writer/director Declan O'Brien clearly amuses himself with this series as well, as he directed parts 3 and 4, and part 5 is already in the making. He doesn't undertake any real attempts to create suspense or profound character drawings, but aims straightforwardly for sickening gore and the most repulsive make-up effects imaginable. Once again, we're in the remote regions of West-Virginia, which apparently is the inbreeding capital of the world as they have an overpopulated sanitarium full of them. Three horribly deformed siblings take control over the hospital one dark night in 1974 and, even though they're still just children, manage to annihilate the entire staff. Fast forward to present day, when nine of the most dim-witted college students decide to go for a skiing weekend, but stupidly take a wrong turn and have no other option but to seek shelter in the eerie sanatorium during a blizzard. I don't suppose I have to elaborate on what happens next? Apparently it's very normal in West Virginia for three underdeveloped cannibals to remain at large and probably make dozens of victims in one and the same area for more than 30 years without sending in the army or whatever. Like with any random movie of this type, you have to abandon all common sense and intellect, and just enjoy the bloodshed. Although "enjoy" might be a rather inappropriate choice of words, as most of the killings featuring here are incredibly sick and twisted. Some guy gets quartered, a cute blond chick is decapitated with a barb wired noose and one poor sucker (ironically one of the most amiable one of the bunch) even has to witness how the inbred hillbillies cut out large pieces of flesh and turn him into a living fondue diner! It's a large group, so you can also entertain yourself by making a prognosis of the order in which they'll die, and of course by laughing very hard at the stupid things they do. Apparently interracial lesbian sex is popular nowadays as well, so we'll gratuitously throw in some of that as well. Onwards to the next "Wrong Turn" installment, say I. Hopefully Declan O'Brien will put some songs by the English band "Fine Young Cannibals" on the soundtrack.
