Summary: This is a franchise that started out on shaky ground. It’s more than a little surprising that it managed to live on this long. But, it’s done more than live on. How often is number 4 the best of a series? Not often, I can assure you of that. But that’s exactly what I found here. There’s something for every horror fan. All of the essential elements are there and we have an interesting group of victims and killers. Production used every cent of their limited budget.
Excerpt: Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the woods of West Virginia comes the fourth film in the Wrong Turn series, Bloody Beginnings. This one starts off with a pretty nifty prologue sequence in which the director of a sanatorium gives his latest employee a tour of Ward 3 where the most dangerous of the mentally and physically deformed and inbred patients are housed behind the safety of steel jail cell doors.
Conclusion: The third sequel in the 'Wrong Turn' series is another low-budget, straight-to-video entry with little entertainment value, but it's still an improvement over part three. An attempt at providing an origins story to the inbred siblings, it fails to really add much to the overall series aside from a brief prologue. The Blu-ray comes with average audio and video and a small collection of supplements.
Conclusion: So we have come to the shocking conclusion of this Blu-ray review where I’m supposed to tell you to either plop down your hard earned money for this title, go to your nearest rental kiosk or completely disregard the feature altogether. Wow! I’ll tell you. That’s a lot of pressure on me. Where’s my Thor hammer? Oh, here it is. And here’s my final judgment or decree I’m handing down.
Conclusion: How and why are more Wrong Turn films being made? I have no idea, but hopefully the franchise ends here. Although Bloody Beginnings probably isn't the worst entry in the series—that honor goes to part three—it's hardly worth recommending to any besides the most undiscriminating horror fans. You can certainly do better for pre-Halloween entertainment. Unless you're some kind of Wrong Turn apologist— and a few of those do exist in the wild—avoid this one at all costs.
