DVD REVIEW: Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines - Roxanne McKee, Doug Bradley, Camilla Arfwedson, Oliver Hoare, Amy Lennox - 20th Century Fox
Release Date: 28/01/13
In the fifth installment of the Wrong Turn franchise, a small West Virginia town is hosting the legendary Mountain Man Festival on Halloween, where throngs of costumed party goers gather for a wild night of music and mischief. But an inbred family of hillbilly cannibals kill the fun when they trick and treat themselves to a group of visiting college students.
The fifth outing in the series and whilst you don’t expect it to anything Oscar worthy you know damn well what you’re going to get, a story of gore, murder, mayhem and of course cannibals. Whilst the plotline is quite simple for this title it is one that for me was perhaps the goriest to date, that’s not to detract from the storyline but when you add the amount of victims into the mix really left the story only one real way to go. Yes its not complex, yes its simply gore horror but these titles offer something I like, an unhappy ending.
With the addition of a new cast member to the hill billies side this film works well which when added to a few unbelievable moments (such as the forward thinking of the deformed murderers which the principle guy on their side denies that they have early on,) makes this a film to enjoy with a friend and pizza.
