[2.75/10] Wrong Turn 3: Left for Dead (2009)


Wrong Turn 3:
Left for Dead
(2009)


Short review: By all means the first "Wrong Turn", was entertaining, intense and scary. "Wrong Turn 2" was mediocre at best, but still watchable. Yet "Wrong Turn 3: Left For Dead" is a boring, corny and basically spoils how good the original movie was. Too many moments in "Wrong Turn 3: Left For Dead", from the direction, to the score, to much of the cast and the unconvincing CG gore effects feel too much like a straight to Scy-Fy Channel movie, granted one with boobs and profanity, but still a Scy-Fy Channel movie. Also, while this one tries to blend action/horror and the 'backwoods slasher' genres, it largely lacks the 70's/80's horror throwback of the original, or the 80's splatter flick throwback and black humor of its sequel - elements that made those movies a lot of fun. This just feels generic. There honestly is not much point in watching this movie. Nothing exciting or amusing happens and the dialogue is bad but not cheesy so it's not even that satisfying to laugh at. You will just end up disappointed and a little closer to death.

  • My Rating: 2.75/10
  • Rotten Tomatoes: N/A
  • IMDb: 4.4/10

The first part of this movie is still the only horror film that ever got me really scared :) I still get creeps when I think of those monsters chasing people on top of the trees :)
And the main role was played by Desmond Harrington :)))
