Wrong Turn 4: The hospital
11 August 2016 | by unbrokenmetalSee all my reviews

In the introduction, we see how three demented maniacs take over a hospital and kill the doctors. Years later, a bunch of teenagers skiing in the area look for shelter in a snow storm and arrive at that hospital. On the next morning, they discover they are not alone. The 3 same old cannibals chase them to cook them for breakfast...

Part 4 of the series works well as a prequel, it is not necessary to know the other movies. What I liked was that the teenagers are not the usual stupid bunch, running and screaming. They actually develop a strategy to chase the enemies and try to prepare a trap for them. There are also a couple of stupid moments, for example the guy who wants to help a strangled person – by pulling hard at her feet so the noose tightens. OMG. But altogether it's a watchable sequel. The cinematography goes up one notch in quality compared to part 2 and 3, obviously the hospital offers more visual possibilities than the woods, and they used them. The movie was not shot at the studio, but inside a real 'lost' building which adds to its creepiness. I voted 8/4/6/7/5/4 for the 6 movies.
