Wrong Turn 3: Left For Dead (2009) Review
Written by: Gardenofstone10
Of all the Wrong Turn movies, this is my least favorite. It had everything I expected, but like all trilogies in horror movies, the third is usually the weakest.
Plot: A high profile prison inmate transfer is taking place. We have a bus with a couple cops and a bunch of rowdy inmates. After being rammed off the road by one of the infamous mutants, it's pretty much a slaughter one after the other.
Stumbling along the inmates and the cop (who are walking through the forest trying to get to a phone or radio) is a girl who in the opening scene watched her friends get murdered by our mutant.
They find a truck load of money and they keep the girl and the cops to help carry the money. One by one people start to die (in amazing ways) and then after a while, the movie ends.
The movie was overall satisfying. The only thing it really lacked was intensity and suspense. The first one and parts of the second one were on edge. With the mutants popping up from anywhere. The feeling that an arrow can be shot at any moment. This movie, there was no guessing. At one point, the camera went beyond the view of the inmates to basically tell us, "look what's about to happen".
The gore was amazing in this movie. The beginning of the second movie has a chick get sliced in two, long ways. This one, has a guy getting sliced, long ways....into three. It made me so happy to see a bunch of the kills.
A part that was a little strange and almost seemed to be there ONLY for gross factor was the mutant cuts open a guys skull and eats a piece of his brain. But everyone else, he takes back to his place....it made no sense. It was a cool effect, but the movie could have done without.
The acting wasn't overall bad. The guys playing the inmates looked and acted the way escaped inmates should act. The cops, the same. The dialog was very smooth, too. It didn't have any corny over the top lines, just normal conversations. Which was nice because I half expected this movie to take a shit on the first two and just crap out. It didn't.
Overall, this movie owned. I had a hunger for some violence and this movie made me full, but still wanting seconds! I will for sure be buying this one when it comes out. Do yourself a favor and pick it up, too. Peace.
