In the American horror film, the most gruesome horror is always reserved for the adventurers and reckless youngsters who stray from the beaten path. Especially when there are bloodthirsty hillbillies (or Capitol storm troopers) around.
After six variations, the Wrong Turn franchise, distant and sick relative of The Hills Have Eyes, had bled dry. Not a sign to stop, but to hoist the creator of the original 2003 slasher back on board for a reboot. The reboot gives the series a pithy, political twist, but his invention drowns in horror scenes that are primarily meant to be bawdy.
