Wrong Turn 2 (2007) Review:
Coming 4 years after the first Wrong Turn, this sequel does exactly what’s expected: it takes the same formula except with more inbred monsters, more victims and therefore a lot more violence.
Basing its story upon some kind to TV or movie shooting is kind of a classic for horror movie sequels (Halloween Resurrection, New Nightmare, Scream 3), not always for the best. But here I found the “Survivor”-like TV show concept to be pretty fun and it gives fair credit to all story, making it a bit of a change from the usual “people car break down or get lost in the woods” stories.
The problem with this sequel though is the characters: they all are an over-exaggerated version of already existing clichés. There is the bitch, the bimbo, the sporty guy, the funny guy, etc. Some of them are so unnatural and annoying that you end up wishing they really die first. Unfortunately, it also does make the scenario very predictable, but that is something that is any way to be expected in this kind of money-lurking sequels.
Thankfully, that does not have too much importance here because the real stars of the show are the degenerated villains. They are ugly, so ugly that it is a lot of fun just to watch them. In that, Wrong Turn 2 is much better than its predecessor. The movie also gives them a little more personality which wasn’t the case before. They talk a little (if we can call that talking), have a little background, and even have sex at some point…which is probably one of the grossest kiss scenes in horror cinema. The make-up work is fantastic. I liked the fact that they actually do look like each other, makes it more “natural”.
In the end, and despite the stupid story and the really bad victim characters, I think I actually prefer this sequel to the original.
