Wrong Turn (2021) Review
It could be in one of the lower levels of the horror franchiseThe Championship The Championship compared to The Premier League of A Nightmare On Elm Street and Friday The 13th – creator Alan B. McElroy's series revolves around the lives of flesh-eaters' families who hunt the inhabitants of West Virginia through a series of clever booby traps as well as unimaginative weaponry (think Home Alone if Kevin McCallister were a blood-sucking cannibal). The seventh film in the series is a reboot composed by McElroy and directed by Mike P. Nelson (The Domestics). The film adds a fresh dimension of the deadly clans however, there's nothing here that makes it seem fresh or unique.
A genre film populated by tiny characters and engulfed with tin-eared dialogue.
The setup has been around for as long as (Appalachian) hill. A group of youngsters This time around they're millennials and are app creator Adam (Dylan McTee), oncologist Milla (Emma Dumont) and bistro proprietors Luis (Adrian Favela) and Gary (Vardaan Arora) and non-profit worker Darius (Adain Bradley) and Jen (Charlotte Vega) who is an art/history student currently employed as barista. They head off for a vacation, hiking through the woods only to be chased by a group of famous forest dwellers. The issue is that you're left feeling that the group is aware enough that they be aware that they are in a horror movie (especially when they're on the final line of something such like "Keep to the trail marked. The terrain can be brutal") But Nelson isn't able to provide such the level of sophistication. It's a genre movie populated by thin characters and slowed down by the tin-colored dialogue, losing interest when the nightmares arrive.
The tale is infused with a hint of Trumpian influences as the cannibals come out as 'The Foundation'. It is an group of people who reside on the hills for centuries and are shocked by the direction American civilization has made. This political element is not something that is new to the franchise, but the concept of a creepy group of cults is far from the sense of terror that Midsommar portrays in an unconnected society. However some of the plot elements like an uncontrollable tree-trunk that chases the group through the forest, are executed well, and the final part is well-done, taking the story to a new direction. Matthew Modine turns up as Jen's worried father, looking for the gang, but he isn't able to elevate the story from the familiar muck.
