If you’re a horror movie fan, I assume you remember the original “Wrong Turn” (which in its turn, was loosely based on “Hills have Eyes”). Anyway, “Wrong Turn 4” is a prequel to the original movie, and the story takes place back in 1974, in West Virginia.
In the beginning of the movie, we are introduced to our family or disformed cannibal rednecks, who are kept in Glenville Sanatorium in West Virginia, along with other crazies. Now, so it happens, that they manage to break free, and kill a few people along the way.
Then, fast forward to 2003, and we’re seeing 4 students having fun in a dorm room (2 lesbians, and one couple). Anyway, it turns out they’re about to go snowmobiling during their winter break.
From there on, shit hits the fan: they make a “wrong turn”, and end up in the same sanatorium. And guess who’s expecting some fresh meat for dinner….?
I absolutely loved the original “Wrong Turn”, and part 2 was okay as well. Now, I don’t remember the third part at all (although I am pretty much sure I did watch it), but “Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings” has a few points, that I cannot skip.
First – the film has a couple of really, really gory, bloody and brutal death scenes (won’t spoil, but trust me, its true). Then we got a usual bunch of dumb kids, and 2(!) lesbian scenes, let alone the cannibals themselves.
The story is easy to follow, but does have its flaws, and acting could have been better. But the points I mentioned above are exactly the “keywords” that can sell a horror movie today: blood, gore and sex scenes.
All of the killings are done extremely good SFX wise, there’s no CGI, and you get to see how the “pie gets sliced” literally.
Anyway, in my opinion, this is as good as a prequel can be, and I’d recommend to watch it at least once. The film also happens to have a very cool trailer, which you can watch below.
