Wrong Turn 5 (2012)

Fox takes another wrong turn with this failing Slasher series, this time bringing the inbred hillbillies out of the woods and in to the Mountain Man music festival, where they have their pick of plenty of drugged-up, over-sexed teenagers to mangle and destroy as they see fit. Why this is being called WRONG TURN 5 when all of the teens end up exactly where they intended to is beyond us, but that is the least of our worries. Declan O'Brien's script could have supplanted any other group of deranged killers and the film would have remained just as pointless and unnecessary as the last sequel. Once the audience has given up on the annoying lead characters, the only thing to look forward to is the gratuitous sex and gore, but even the effects department fails to deliver any memorable moments of bloody violence. The continued decline in quality and entertainment that this series poses is beginning to outweigh the fun of the first two films, and it is time to either bring back Joe Lynch for more absurd exploitation or kill off the mutant mountain men once and for all.

Rating: 4/10.
