Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines
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.

David Arnold » This latest installment of the Wrong Turn series sees a group of young campers get unwittingly mixed up in an unfortunate series of events when the leader of a group of cannibals gets arrested. The "rescue mission" becomes a game of life of death when the said cannibals come to their leader's aid.
Now, the 1st movie was really good…good acting with very believable characters, good suspense, and really good creepy moments and enough gore to keep the gore fest fans happy. This one, however, was completely at the other end of the scale. The plot is ridiculous, the characters just look totally out of place (even the main town inhabitants look as if they don't belong there), the acting is pretty damn awful, and the make-up for the cannibals is amateurish at best…in fact I've seen better Halloween masks made by kindergarten kids. This is, in fact, a very bad Friday The 13th movie with a different title and there were parts where I kept expecting Jason to pop out from behind a tree or a corner of a building at some point.
When watching this movie you realise that absolutely nothing about it makes any sense either and just two examples of that are: 1) a cop gets charged at by cannibals…cop just stands there saying "halt" with no weapon drawn, and 2) the town is full of people celebrating the Mountain Man Festival yet as the movie goes on, without any explanation, it suddenly becomes like a ghost town. There are obviously much more than that but I don't have the time or space to list them all, and I don't want to ruin it (ahem) for you.
I've seen some really terrible movies in my time but this one ranks up there with one of the worst I've ever seen. I knew just 5 minutes into the movie it was going to be bad, but I didn't think it would be as bad as it was. I just wish there was an option for 0 stars because this movie doesn't even deserve a 1-star rating.
Avoid this absolute drivel at all costs unless you want to endure 91 minutes of pain. Don't say you weren't warned.
