Wrong Turn 4 (2011)

In 1974, the Glenville Sanatorium is overrun by three of its most notorious patients: the inbred cannibal brothers known as One Eye, Three Finger, and Saw Tooth. Thirty years later, a pack of partying college students make a wrong turn and end up camping out in the old abandoned asylum. Little do they know that its prior residents still live within its walls, and meat is back on the menu! WRONG TURN 4 presents itself as a prequel to the series, but then lazily jumps forward to the 2000's after a brief introduction of the infamous killers. It is clear from the beginning that SHARKTOPUS director Declan O'Brien is entirely unconcerned with the plot or characters, and that he is just using the shell of a film to put on another gory display. WRONG TURN 4 is just as bland and predictable as the third installment. It lacks the suspense of the original and the off-the-wall insanity of the second, leaving Slasher fans with nothing more than a few bloody kills and ample amounts of nudity. If you're in it for the gore, you get several decapitations, a giant drill through the chest, a human buffet, and countless missing limbs, but WRONG TURN 4 is nothing more than a mindless knock-off of the Norwegian hit COLD PREY.

Rating: 6/10.
Gore: 6/10.
