Syfy channel alum, Declan O’Brien, director of the series’ previous installment “Wrong Turn 3: Left For Dead” is back with another sequel to the “Wrong Turn” franchise with “Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings.”  Here’s hoping that this installment fares better than the previous CGI-fest.

The film opens in 1974, West Virginia at the Glenville Sanatorium.  Dr. Ryan escorts a new doctor, Dr. Annmarie McQuaid around the facility explaining that the majority of the patients are highly deformed due to inbreeding.  They explore Ward C, the most dangerous in the facility where Dr. McQuaid’s hair is swiftly grabbed through the iron bars of one of the patient’s cells.  The patient manages to pilfer a hairpin from her, which goes unnoticed.  Dr. Ryan continues the tour and proceeds to show her a cell containing the most dangerous patients in the hospital, three “kids” known as the Hilliker brothers.  They were found in the woods with the remains of what is thought to be their parents.  The doctor explains that one of the kids ate his own fingers, while another poked out his eye with a fork and ate it in front of a nurse.  The other boy adorns a face mask to conceal chompers which he had been sharpening on the cement walls of the cell.  “The fascinating thing about these children” the doctor continues, “they can’t feel pain.”  Dr. McQuaid establishes that she would like to work with the brothers and they continue the tour of the hospital.  When the two doctors leave, the hairpin thief throws the pin to the brothers who pick the lock of the cell and make their escape.  Before leaving the facility however, they have a little fun.  An inbred brother dines on a guard’s throat and eyeball, they electroshock Dr. MaQuaid to death (but not before she pisses her pants), and rip Dr. Ryan up limb from limb (completely realized with gory practical makeup effects).  We’re off to a good start…

Next we jump to 2003 and after a duel lesbian/hetero sex scene a group of (late twenty/thirty-year old) “college students” are leaving on a skidoo trip to a cabin in the West Virginia woods.  Along the way, of course, they take a “wrong turn” and end up caught in a snow storm.  They notice a building nearby to take refuge, which is none-other-than, the abandoned Glenville Sanatorium.  After some partying on their first evening at the hospital, they then become ghoulish mongoloid hillbilly stew.

The film should satisfy gorehounds for the most part.  The most garish of scenes involves one of the victims chained to a slab with barbed wire while the cannibals meticulously filet various body parts from him to prepare their next meal.  It was an interesting choice to have a snowy locale for “Wrong Turn 4,” and while most of the murders and misfortunes take place inside the sanatorium, O’Brien utilizes the frigid outdoors as a slayground for the film’s finale.

Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings” is a big step forward for the “Wrong Turn” franchise.  With the predominant use of practical gore effects and sadistic blood-soaked imagery, it blows its precursor (“Wrong Turn 3”) right out of the water.  It seems this time around O’Brien has learned from his previous mistakes and has amended them.

20th Century Fox bring “Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings” to DVD (and Blu-ray) and is presented 1.78:1 anamorphic, with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio.  The DVD's sights and sounds are excellent.  For the supplemental features we get a standard commentary by director Declan O'Brien.  There is the featurette, 'Director's Die-ary's' which runs 8-minutes and contains behind the scenes footage.  Next is 'Making Another Wrong Turn', which is a little longer running just over 12-minutes in length.  'Lifestyles of the Sick and Infamous' is another short 5-minute featurette pertaining to the spookiness of the mental institution in which they filmed the movie.  Rounding out the extras is a 'Wrong Turn 4 Music Video Featuring The Blackout City Kids,' and 18-minutes of 'Deleted Scenes.'
