I digress. A solid 5/5 stars for getting everything you paid to see just the way you wanted to see it
The scene in the original WT where the kids are in the villains' house having to keep quiet while they watch in horror as their friend is being butchered set high expectations for suspense in the remainder of this series. In WT2, a couple of kids were in the villains' house during a child delivery, but I didn't find this scene nearly as suspenseful as the above-mentioned scene from the original WT. I wasn't startled much at all during most of this movie.
To me, if humor and horror are to coexist in the same movie, you really have to pull it off right, which, perhaps unintentionally, WT2 managed to do in a couple of spots. The first is where the villains and a "dinner guest" were sitting at the dinner table and they all joined hands, apparently to have a "silent grace" or pray. Pray? Really? To whom? And for what? The second scene that roused a chuckle is when one of the villains' was breathing rather heavily and making grunting noises while watching a couple of get it on. The humor to me was subtle, and didn't take away from the horror atmosphere of the movie.
All in all, I found WT2 to be the least engaging installment of the Wrong Turn series, but still worth watching. Compared to other randy-teen hack-and-slash movie series, the Wrong Turn series to include this installment is to me among the better ones. This movie at least held my attention well enough such that the movie was over before I knew it; always a good sign that I was properly entertained.
The Wrong Turn series in general is a fabulous franchise, and this film was perhaps the reason it continued. Wrong Turn 1 was great, but the strength of the original sequel can determine how long the series lasts. This sequel was excellent.

Having said that what 'Wrong Turn 2' does it mostly does well. Quite gore laden, the characters weren't as irritating as they first appeared and in any case didn't hang around long enough to outstay their welcome. There was a back story about a survivalist reality tv show of which the cast of this film were participants or crew, providing an adequate excuse as to how they came to be in the heavily forested backwoods of West Virginia. The special effects team went to town on the prosthetics of the murderous inbred hillbillies, rendering them looking faintly ridiculous; but what they lacked in good dentistry and good looks they made up for with exceptional strength and being impervious to being struck by vehicles.
Some of the deaths were really quite good. I wavered quite a lot on WT2's merits whilst watching it but it is the type of film to sit back and let it wash over you, admiring the neat axe work, mincing machines and vat loads of blood on display. I watched one of the extras showing the planning of some of the slayings and it came across, as it did while watching the film, how much fun everyone seemed to be having. I look forward to seeing the commentary at some point with Henry Rollins who put in a good turn.
Not disimilar to and certainly no less brainless than 'Frontiers' a French horror that on average scores higher than this. If you liked the first Wrong Turn and more or less can guess what to expect with this you may like it; if you didn't like the first or have intelligence as a prerequisite for your horrors, best look elsewhere.
Good picture quality on the UK DVD (Fox)
Lots of good features including a commentary, making of, and more.
