The West Virginia Barbed Wire Massacre
Just wanted to make another post about this movie I watched over at my parent's house, Wrong Turn.
It's your typical slasher movie, so if you like that kind of fare you might find it entertaining. I'm so jaded though that it almost seemed boring to me. It follows the usual slasher movie rules, you can pretty much predict who's going to die when.
In a lot of ways this is a bad knock off of Texas Chainsaw Massacre, maybe seasoned with a bit of Deliverance. Takes place in West Virginia, features a hick family, chief weapon this time is barbed wire. They've even got all these wrecked cars from their victims stored around the place, which I think TCM had too.
What's weird about this movie are the killers themselves. We don't see them for a long time, just see their boots as they shuffle about and make moaning and wheezing noises. When you finally do see these guys, they're practically mutants. Matter of fact, they bear a striking resemblance to some of the orcs from Lord Of The Rings! Take the pale and bony "What about them? They're fresh!" orc from Two Towers, except make him chitter and laugh the whole time. Throw in the Uruk-Hai chief with the mad archery skills from Fellowship Of The Ring (yes, one of these guys actually has a bow and orc arrows!) Finally, throw in the deformed orc general from Return Of The King. Give them barbed wire, a shotgun, a big tow truck and no dialogue and you've got Wrong Turn!
