"Wrong Turn 3: Left for Dead" (Blu-ray) - Reviewed by John Johnson



A group of young people are vacationing in a forest in West Virginia and are attacked by a colony of inbred mutants who butcher them in very gruesome ways. Only one of them escapes.

Meanwhile, at Grafton Penitentiary, also in West Virginia, some inmates are being transferred in a bus, and there is an accident. The inmates escape into the same forest where the mutants live.

The criminals are carrying some stolen money, and they have to decide if they are going to kill each other over it, or work together to complete their escape and share the stolen loot.

The convicts discover the mutants, only this time, it is not so easy for the mutants to do their thing. These guys are used to violence and know how to deal it out themselves.

At the end, there is only one person alive. Is it a convict or a mutant?

I thought graphic violence was about as intense as it could get, but this movie takes it a big leap beyond what I have seen before. It is so graphic, it seems unreal. The acting is very "Indie" . . . very low budget, but effectively scary.


The picture is extremely sharp. I wish all BDs were this good in terms of image quality. However, there is not much use of the surround channels.


These include Action, Gore and Chaos!, Brothers in Blood, Three Finger's Flight Night, and Deleted Scenes.
