Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines (2012)

October 10, 2017

Fearter rating: 6.5/10

Increasingly imaginative ways to kill people, but little else. 

 

Review (No Spoilers):

The best part of this film is the beginning "mini-film" which leads into the title graphics. More specifically, the title graphic screen itself, it's funnily gory and perfect for the 5th installment of a horror franchise. 

 

Following on from this, the film seems to have stemmed from an exercise at a writers workshop called "Imaginative ways to kill people using farm equipment". The murders are far too elaborate - often looking like they'd require a degree in mechanical engineering to set up. 

 

Good points: The plot makes sense (although the characters decisions don't - but when do they?) and the gory scenes are mildly realistic.

 

Where this film goes wrong is that the sets look like they're made out of Ryvitas (other flimsy material/food is available), the acting is what you'd expect from the 5th installment of a franchise and it's not actually scary. I also have no idea why it's called "Bloodlines".

 

This film is exactly what you'd expect it to be, which isn't much. On a day when you're feeling good it won't annoy you. On a day when you're not, it's probably best to give it a miss.
