Here he provides us with some brief, poorly edited behind the scenes footage. Very few prostitutes were portrayed as such during the days of The Code so in that sense Dead End was quite daring. This is more or less the rough outline of the narrative. The kills are the allure, and this sequel dishes up a variety of splatterific fatalities, from an exploding old man to a Fargo-inspired trip through a meat grinder. But the shocks don't stop with gruesome deaths.
You might not care about the characters, you may not give a deuce about the plot, and you won't be scared at all this time around, but if you're after gross-out gags and giddy mutant mayhem, Wrong Turn 2 will take you there. I have a friend who can pop his entire spine on command, and it always sends shivers down mine. Subwoofer use is also modest compared to Wrong Turn, and there's less detail in the soundscape overall. During the pursuit, Mara is hit in the head with an axe and killed as Nina hides. Erica Leerhsen's goth girl is the other standout, and she manages to squeeze some juice out of the relatively dry material.
. Also, the acting performance is somewhat mixed. Were you aware that deformed babies are given severed fingers for pacifiers? I especially like the frequently used bone-cracking foley effect when the mutants pop their joints back into place. Be prepared for an education in perversion. Director Christopher Schier, although in the business for some time, does not have many movies or series on his track record; he seems to come from commercial filming.
Dialogue too is presented clearly from the center channel, and I can't remember ever loosing any lines to poorly mixed levels. Peter is also a forensic pathologist, but now in his old age, he is past his best of mental powers, and tends to overlook some important clues. He's involved with two women, rich socialite Wendy Barrie who lives in the penthouse and Sylvia Sidney who played more working class women than anyone else during the Thirties. Thus, Antje Traue is very often pictured close up, body and face. Commentary by Writers Turi Meyer and Al Septien Likewise, if you're up for watching Wrong Turn 2 a third time, writers Meyer and Septien offer up a listenable, but ultimately disposable track. Softness is once again an issue, as the majority of the shots look indistinct and undefined. I am not sure a review in English is relevant since the series isn't geared towards an international audience.
Have you ever wanted to see a mutant masturbating in the woods? The kids and McCrea recognize him, the kids worship him and McCrea is willing to give him a pass for now, he's no rat. Marjorie Main who we usually know as the rambunctious and brassy Ma Kettle plays a very serious part indeed as Humphrey Bogart's mother. As the comments are coming from writers, expect plenty of character analysis and plot dissection. As the players begin to vanish, the survivors struggle to find their way out of the remote West Virginia forest before they become the next meal. Commentary by Director Joe Lynch and Actors Erica Leerhsen and Henry Rollins From the start, first time director Joe Lynch is super-enthusiastic about this commentary track, bubbling up when the 20th Century Fox fanfare plays at the beginning of the film. Here, the series drops all pretension of seriousness and goes for guts instead, letting the entrails fall where they may.
You'll not forget her as she rejects her hoodlum son both the anger and sorrow she expresses, it is haunting. A common point of criticism is the too slow pace of the narrative. It may come to Traue's disadvantage that she has never received systematic acting training which might have put her into the position to compensate the effects of a weak script and poor directing. One of the weak points is that the potentially interesting backstory, involving the sparse appearance of Emma's boyfriend Kevin, is too vague and too little developed to become a significant part of the narrative, and this is really a missed opportunity. As you probably expect, the characters are flat caricatures of typical reality show contestants, and you won't give a lick about their petty plights and jealousies. Director: Writers: , Starring: , , , , , Producer: » Wrong Turn 2: Dead End Blu-ray Review The family that flays together stays together… Reviewed by , September 18, 2009 Those cantankerous mutant cannibals are back at it again, stalking and slobbering through the bumble-brush of wild, wonderful West Virginia, taking down oblivious city folk with extreme prejudice, and proving that there's more than one way to skin a co-ed.
The other figures are very much sidelined. In German media, upon release the series has drawn very mixed reviews, from very positive to very negative. Sidney works as a seamstress in a garment factory and she's currently on strike and she's got a younger brother to support who causes her much grief. Short and sweet, but not much to eat. » Show more for Wrong Turn 2: Dead End Blu-ray.
Story number one is about Joel McCrea, a former slum kid himself who still lives down there while he tries to get a job as an architect. Those same buildings that are portrayed as slums now rent to yuppies at obscene figures if in fact they survived. All their stories mix in this plot which does hold the interest through out the film. Their antics, some funny, some vicious, alternate with subplots: unemployed architect Dave is torn between Drina, sweet but equally poor, and Kay, a rich man's mistress; gangster Baby Face Martin returns to his old neighborhood and finds that nobody is glad to see him. If you can suffer through some of the silliness, though, and you don't mind being grossed out, Wrong Turn 2 is definitely above average for a direct-to-video genre offering. Wrong Turn 2 doesn't supply Dead Alive-levels of gore, but it does best the first film with better kills and a more entertaining, gut- busting experience overall.
