Shock Treatment in a Sanatorium
A group of snow loving friends have ventured up in to the hills for some fun in the snow. But having not paid attention they left their car in a tow away zone and to make matters worse get themselves lost in the snow. After stumbling across an old sanatorium and with night having fallen they have little choice to take shelter there for the night which doesn't seem to bother some of them as they only have sex on the mind. But what they don't know is back in the 70s this place was home to three inbred mutants who escaped and caused a mass riot with the staff ending up their victims but more importantly they still think of it as home and these young friends are in their home.
"Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings" opens up in the 70s with the scenes of are hill-billy mutants in a cell in this sanatorium with them managing to escape. This sets the pace for those who stumble across this movie having not watched any of the previous movies in the "Wrong Turn" series, not that you need to, as after a bit of story we get are first dose of gore with one woman getting electric shocked to death and more violently a scene involving barbed wire and a man strung up by it to the electric door mechanism. And it doesn't settle for just gore as it jumps to the 21st century and we get a double sex scene involving are young friends.
The thing is that whilst an entertaining way to start this 4th "Wrong Turn" movie with us being taken back to the 70s and are young inbred mutants in a sanatorium it soon becomes just a typical teen horror movie once are friends up stuck in the abandoned sanatorium for the night. You basically get the formula of those who are mean or cocky ending up becoming victims whilst a good girl will probably end up being the last one alive and trying to get out of there whilst being left traumatised. And that isn't a criticism as people watch these "Wrong Turn" movies for this formula of sex, gore and more gore and it delivers on that even if the narrative leaves you numb.
What this all boils down to is that "Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings" is just a typical movie in this "Wrong Turn" series with it clearly focused on the shock factor when it comes to these young friends ending up victims to the inbred mutants. If you watch expecting something more then unfortunately you are only ever going to end up disappointed.
