Wrong Turn

Thursday 27th November 20037:00 PM

I have to admit to not having watched the movie, I'm not the biggest horror fan, I can normally be found hiding behind the staff seats during the scray bits!

Wrong turn didn't exactly get a lot of hype before it was released, which is never a good sign for a movie, however this one is apparently a bit better than was first thought.

Having read other's comments tho' this seems to be a flick much in the style of 70's horror, a bit of "texas chainsaw massacre" here, a little "deliverance" there, and more than a little "jeepers creepers" thrown in as well. As with alot of horror flicks a group of 20 somthing year olds manages to get lost in the woods, and somehow manage to catch the attention of three difigured hillbillies chasing after them ... oh yes... sorry.... cannabilistic hillbillies.

All in all Wrong Turn looks to be a fairly average horror flick although some people found its atmosphere and its ability to avoid some of the cliches of the genre pulled it above this level. If you fancy being scared for an hour and a half Wrong turn looks like it could be the answer.
