good back-story, and good acting


A Masterpiece!


There are better movies of two hours length. I loved the actress'performance.

It’s sentimental, ridiculously long and only occasionally funny


This movie is really a great horror movie. I've never seen such a scary movie before. Its very entertaining movie as well unlike the boring supernatural horror movies which are not really scary. I enjoyed each and every scene of it. This sequel is the most violent one in the entire wrong turn series. Its totally my type of movie because i love those horror movies which make me scary. Amazing direction by Joe Lynch. All the characters were really very good. Much better than my expectations. Overall its an excellent movie, very very very violent. Strongly recommended for the lovers of horror movies. P.S. Don't watch it if you have a weak heart.


So cool that Henry Rollins is in it and he was nothing but cool in the whole flick. Every time he was on the screen it was the right movie.Rollins plays the host of a stupid looking reality show were the contestants pretend they must survive a post-apocalyptic world, but they soon discover how real that scenario is, as they end up taping the show in the same woods as a group of psychopathic killers. In this film, somewhat of an origin story is given to the inbreed family that does the slashing in the woods, but I have to say, the group that did the killing in the first film were far more better. Just a little bit more creepy and creative in Wrong Turn. In Wrong Turn 2, it seem they were trying to up the extreme of these characters when it was not needed.By itself it's more of a Stereotypical horror film with elements of Predator-like action, thanks mostly to Rollins. As a franchise, while the original brought freshness to the genre, it's sequel was stale.


Wrong Turn 2 (2007) ** 1/2 (out of 4) A group of contestants, producers, cameramen and a host (Henry Rollins) heads into the woods of West Virginia to film a reality show but soon they're coming under attack by a cannibal family who are needing some food in their stomachs.The original film went for scares and for the most part was a success but there's no question that this film decided to go in the opposite direction. Instead of there being any real atmosphere or scares, WRONG TURN 2 goes for non-stop violence, outrageously gory scenes and some of the most blood soaked mayhem that you're ever going to see. There are some major problems scattered throughout this film that keeps it from being much better but at the same time, for a sequel, it's really not too bad and there's no doubt that those wanting the red stuff are going to be extremely happy.We'll start with the problems but the biggest is that there are simply way too many characters early on. There are so many different subplots going on at the start of this film and none of them are all that interesting. We've got six contestants all with a story going on and these stories are mixed with other plot points and they just don't go anywhere. These story lines really aren't character development but instead they're just boring dialogue scenes that go no where and add nothing to the picture. Another problem is that there are some scenes early on that just drag on to the point where you're bored. This includes the "promo" shot towards the end where the Rollins character is talking about the reality show contest. This here should have been cut all together.The first hour of the film is pretty mediocre but once we get down to the final few characters things really pick up and I'd say the final thirty-minutes are a real blast because we just get all sorts of craziness. What I really liked about the picture is that it really keeps you off guard on who's going to live and who's going to die. I'm not going to lie but I was completely caught off guard with who died first and who ended up surviving. For the most part all of the actors did a nice enough of a job to at least bring the characters to life and make you care about them. Again, there are too many at the start but none of them are overly annoying and there are actually a couple good moments between them including one sequence where two that have been fighting come together as they prepare to die.WRONG TURN 2 succeeds in being downright brutal in terms of violence. There are some very clever death scenes including one poor woman who gets split in half and there are countless other scenes including people getting chopped up, broken apart and even some people being blown to pieces in hilarious fashion. The gore effects are extremely believable and there's no doubt that the budget allowed for gallons of blood. Another major plus are the actual mutant rednecks. All of them have a terrific look and the actors really deserve a lot of credit because they really give these characters a personality no matter how disgusting they are.


I liked the movie. There was some jump scares and many blood. I liked the beginning because the victim was slain to half. Also I liked how the cannibal family was looking. My favorite character was Amber, the Iraq veteran. Oh, why she needed to die?Anyway I hate Elena, the girl who was having sex with the boyfriend of a other woman in the competition. In the movie there was more blood than in the previous movie. The end was cool - one cannibal gives the little cannibal baby a finger like a pacifier. That made me laugh. So the movie is not the best but it is still cool with the big amount blood.
