I liked the first Wrong Turn movie and only watched 1 of the many sequels and didn't like it. This movie could have been called something different because its kind of its own thing completely. If you can get through the first 20 minutes of the main characters beating the audience over the head with how progressive they all are, it actually turns out to be a pretty good movie. It makes you think the bad guys are just going to be cliché southern racists but then it quickly takes a turn into uncharted territory. The movie keeps you on your toes all the way up to the end credits and even after the credits start rolling. Definitely worth a watch.
I unashamedly loved this movie. What an unexpected great horror film for 2021. The shots, maybe they're not that amazing, but everything is so clear and beautiful with incredible scenery of the Appalachian trails in the USA. And ON SCREEN deaths. WOW. Amazing deaths. Just so gory. Wow.
Jen is seeking herself and as a last hurrah before she decides what she wants to do, her boyfriend and 4 others (couple Gary(?) And Luis, and 2nd couple Adam and Mila) go to hike the Appalachian trails together. However, the group runs into trouble when Darius decides to go off the trail, ignoring warnings from locals, to end up pursued by a mysterious group of mountain dwellers.
This story does not hesitate to drag our characters down into the true depths of their psyche. Unfortunately some of the most interesting characters are thrown away within minutes of the action starting. I wish there had been more development given to the characters, especially outside of the main duo, but I still really liked where the movie went. I had so much fun watching this and learning about the mountain dwellers. I did like the diversity in the casting and the story behind the mountain dwellers.
This story could have gone down the stereotypical route its predecessor did, and I'm so glad it didnt. There were times when the film felt long and then where the action was quick and tight and we had only 30 minutes left. I liked the musical cues for the mountain people. I also loved the end credit song. I could watch this again.
I also want to note how the trap that Jen finds herself in is meant to be bad but it was totally a daddy scenario I'm just saying...
A film that has little to do with the original film "Wrong turn" and is a little weaker, at least in terms of hectoliters of blood, cannibalism, etc., as we were used to in previous episodes. This is not to say that the film is bad. Despite these things, the film has an interesting script, tension and atmosphere. And I honestly think this part is better than 5 and 6 parts. Of course, it's not a movie hit, but as an average horror that won't disappoint, if you don't like hectoliters of blood, don't look for them in this movie. And except for the rather embarrassing ending, it wasn't a bad sight.
Well don't go into it thinking that it's a part of the wrong turn films because it's far off with not really any similarities, just a film by the same writer with the same name as them films even thought all over the internet says It's a reboot/remake.
I thought the film was average, some average action too and nothing amazing, nothing i've not seen before from horror films with a simple plot, also with a cast that did alright. I liked the ending scene more than the rest of the film and liked how the ending credits were happening at the same time.
Bad movie, bad story, bad acting, bad bad bad...etcWaist 1 hour of my life
I was hesitant going into this. Don't get me wrong, I love the original Wrong Turn and I enjoyed most of the sequels but I have to admit that they got too far from the suspenseful horror of the first one and it just wasn't as enjoyable anymore. I was glad to see this one return to it's horror roots and away from the horror comedy route.
This one is full of little twists and turns and fun moments for horror fans. It manages to include several horror sub-genres in small ways where they worked and fit without being forced. The killers were sufficiently creepy, the kills were realistic and delightfully gruesome without feeling campy or hokey and the overall tone was suspenseful.
I will admit, a few moments almost took me out of it but I was pulled right back in each time. What pulled me out was minor and was almost immediately remedied. For example the ending where Jen leaves to go back didn't sit right with me but as the credits rolled and it showed her killing them and leaving them felt like a more fitting end for her .
Overall, I would possibly put this on par with the first Wrong Turn.
Went in just for the gore but was actually a fun watch.. bonus!..I think I seen a couple relatives too
Why is this thing called "wrong turn" ??Nothing to do with the original movies, where are my three crazy hillbillies ?? Waited for them to show up at some point, disappointing movie.
It was an alright movie. Third wave feminism nods were on the nose - girls changing car tires because boys can’t, girls standing against bullies in a bar because men are scared to, etc. It was better once it left 2020s social commentaries behind and concentrated on the actual story. Ending wasn’t terrible either. At least not compared to other recent releases (looking at you The Little Things).Still had a lot of silly unbelievable moments but it’s expected in this genre and watchable. I’d still recommend the previous version rather than this one. At least you’d be dealing with a straight up slasher movie that knows what it is.
Meh... Doesn't hold up to the original movies. I couldn't keep focus on this one - was busy updating my personal network during the movie. Definitely a one-watch movie.
NOT a wrong turn movie, but I liked it good! It was fun to watch and intriguing... at times I thought it was going to be silly from there and after but no, it kept my interest until the end.
I get the feeling this became a "wrong turn" reboot from a different script.
starts with the typical annoying bunch of teens going to get killed in the woods, Then there's a nice turn away from the butchered by silly hilly billies expectation. not the first time i've seen this
I was told it was shit, but it's a pretty good film.
No its not the gorefest of the original's sequels, its a different type of movie.
why do the towns people suddenly give much more info to some random dad?. why doesn't the hotel woman tell the Jen what she tells her dad. to not stray from the track, people live in those woods and you'll go missing ?
Poor acting, pathetic characters, ridiculous stereotypes, and a superficial screenplay.
Might have well have been a fan made tribute movie.
What kind of reboot doesn't link to the original movie/s that it's named after? Rated it slightly lower partly because of that.Feels like there's a lot happening, but not really any reason for it other than to keep the movie going longer There's a lot of continuity issues. The acting is okay and its decently shot, but a bit of a dumb story that never really goes anywhere.Also the ending kind of makes it all pointless. The changes to the cannibal inbred family wasn't exactly for the best.Wouldn't recommend.5.0/10
Also, I haven't seen the show yet, but from reading the plot and seeing the trailer, this movie is kind of just a horror version of that series Outsiders (2016).
I have a feeling that this movie will be considered a classic horror film in a few years. It’s an instant classic for me. Criminally underrated.
No, you are not eliza dushku, no these are not these are not cannibals and no, not even you trying to be a Katniss going Postal saves this movie
Antebellum for crackers.
Wrong Turn borrows a lot from every other film that's gone before--from Deliverance to Bone Tomahawk, passing through The Village--without giving anything back.
We're getting to the bottom of the reboot barrel and what they've come up with isn't without style and has its moments, but just watch The Descent again instead.
First of all not to bad but nothing like part1-3 but still worth to watch.Sad no real Hilbillis are in it........Some stupid parts where also in like they killed first one of them with the tree and nobody talked ever about it..........The fake pre ending was also great and the real ending also nice :)7/10 could be 8 if the kills would be much harder....... and the people look to clean :D
what was that? better watch the original one again :/
An ok slasher movie. I liked the plot. Was expecting the gore to go all in, greeted by its social commentary instead.
Yooo this movie is TRASH!!!! Wtf shit confusing original wayyyy better
I watched this on the strength of the trailer and my liking of the other 'Wrong Turn' movies.
Overall, better than I thought it would be - some neat ideas, great effects and photography. Acting was alright but what can you do with this sort of movie? :-)
I think it used the movie title to pick up fans but it shouldn't have done that - should have stood on its own merits and been titled "The Foundation".
However, a special mention has to go to the last 15 minutes and ending credits... keep watching! ;-)
6.5/10 - worth your time and if you want to read more, click the spoiler text below...
I loved the very clever nod to the 'other Wrong Turn movies' when Jen tells her dad about the DVD the kids are watching tonight with 'inbred cannibals' and the dad replies "what, again?" Nicely done.
Having no allegiance to the Wrong Turn franchise myself, I found this to be a decent slasher with an intriguing social commentary undertone. Lots is said here about our current society, stereotypes and prejudice, but remains surface level enough to not draw any form of deep discussion. Decent, but not the revolutionary reboot the studio were probably hoping for. (Side note: god damn does this movie love gory, head smashing deaths. Take a shot every time someone dies from a head injury or skull smashing. You’ll not make the credits :sweat_smile:)
It’s a remake without being a remake, maybe that’s why it makes it a little better than the source material. I really enjoy the storyline, i’m happy they didn’t really stick with the rest of the franchise. Actors did well, for the genre, it’s a good little horror flick.
This movie is a good movie worth to wacht, however it should´ve been given a different name because it has nothing to do with the previous "Wrong Turn" movies.
If you've seen the trailer, then you've probably figured this out already. It's worth mentioning at the top though, that you shouldn't go into this expecting a campy horror film featuring superhuman inbreeds like the original. Instead this loosely borrows the premise from the first film and delivers something with a more serious tone, believable threat and less formulaic story. I can understand if some fans are disappointed by this, but I think it's much better for it.
The inbred hillbilly version is so much better.
