Henry Rollins and Daniella Alonso in Wrong Turn 2: Dead End (2007)

Rollins' Canniball Run

Retired Marine, Colonel Dale Murphy (Henry Rollins) has found a new niche for himself as the host of a new reality show where contestants are thrown into a West Virginia wood with just the clothes on their back and having to survive. But surviving nature turns into surviving much more when they discover that the woodlands are inhabited by a bunch of mutant, inbred cannibals who sees the contestants as trespassers on their territory.

Information download 1 - "Wrong Turn 2: Dead End" is not a sequel to "Wrong Turn", it takes us back up to the woods of West Virginia but it does not pick up the story where the first one left off. Okay so I am sure that some of these inbred cannibals probably appeared in the first movie but if they did they are not crucial characters to what happens.

Information download 2 - "Wrong Turn 2: Dead End" serves up an unimportant storyline which is devoid of originality. From a reality show to young contestants having to deal with life threatening mutant killers it has all been done before and done better.

Information download 3 - "Wrong Turn 2: Dead End" is not sure what it is, at times it is comical to the point of being spoof like but then chucks a load of dialogue at us which seems to be trying for seriousness. It doesn't spoil things by being unsure but it seems like it is conflicted over what it should do.

Information download 4 - "Wrong Turn 2: Dead End" has two things going for it with the first being Henry Rollins who has fun as an over the top host who goes Rambo trying to kill the cannibals. The second is that for all which is wrong with it "Wrong Turn 2: Dead End" delivers a load of gore which is likely to keep those amused by guts dropping out of bodies entertained.

What this all boils down to is that "Wrong Turn 2: Dead End" isn't anything new and will be tedious for those looking for something new in the world of horror but for those just wanting to watch gore with an edge of comedy it works. As for all the Information Download malarkey in this review, well having watched "Wrong Turn 2: Dead End" I hadn't got the energy to try and construct a proper review because in truth "Wrong Turn 2: Dead End" doesn't need it.
