Horror Diary: Hackneyed Horror

I just finished watching Joe Lynch’s third-rate snoozer WRONG TURN 2: DEAD END (2007). Why did I wait so long? Because I knew it would be a pathetic, tongue-in-cheek romp without redeeming value. Then again, that’s all Lynch churns out as if he’s a new Ed Wood – though Wood had class. The only good thing about the venture was Rollins, as always, who delivers even in the face of total bullshit.

Why a snoozer? Same schtick we’ve seen a million times. No new ground here, though a good game show gone wrong concept could have worked if better screenwriters had been at the helm instead of the hackneyed-ridden team of Turi Meyer and Al Septien.

Instead of watching this mindless trash, at least do yourself a favor and indulge in THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (1974) and THE HILLS HAVE EYES (1977). After all, Lynch and company just did a mash-up of both cult faves and brought it to the screen with some fresh eye candy for a new teen scream audience.

No, I won’t write up a full review because it isn’t worth the effort for this “no star”.

There’s a lot better fare out there…
