WRONG TURN 3: LEFT FOR DEAD (2009)

80% prison escape drama, 30% mutant hillbilly Slasher killing, 1% tits and 30% entertaining WRONG TURN 3 is the crappiest of the series so far. It's not horrible, just very predictable and I found myself daydreaming a lot, even during the attack scenes.

A group of prisoners are being transported on a bus to another prison or something. Suddenly a hillbilly truck appears and runs them off the road. Unable to contact anybody for help the group is forced to walk through the scary woods. Which is exactly what the mutant cannibal monster dude had in mind, because he has the forest booby trapped with all kinds of shit for chopping up people. Along the way the group comes across a wrecked armored truck full of money. This leads to all kinds of drama. To break up the sausage fest the group also comes across a woman who's been in the woods for the last few days hiding for the cannibal guy.

Of all of the 47 million different scenarios that the writers could have came up with for a WRONG TURN sequel I think number 47,000,001 would have been "have a group of dudes with fake tattoos walking around the woods talking nonstop about how tuff they are while being hunted by a lone hillbilly cannibal who looks like a large, furless, physically retarded meerkat". Instead I would have gone along the lines of some more like "due to cheap real estate values a cheerleader camp locates close to where the large, furless, physically retarded meerkat family lives. Humongous amounts of ultraviolence, ultranudity and ultrashort shorts and ultraskimpy t-shirts ensue".

Overall kinda entertaining, forgettable (if you're lucky) acting, two very brief topless scenes, CGI blood and gore, nearly the entire movie is a night, reasonably quick pace, way too much tough guy posturing. Worth a watch, if you are extremely bored, but not really.
