The Good (non spoiler)
Now last year when I heard of this franchise was getting a reboot. I was wondering what could possibly be left to tell about inbred cannibals living in the hills of West Virginia. Original writer Alan B. McElroy has return with a delightful update to this Franchise! Most notably diverse characters, something I wouldn’t say this franchise is outright known for. Secondly this movie was just flat out great. Charlotte Vega as Jennifer was is someone I don’t think we have seen in quite some time. A heroine that keeps you guessing and wishing you could have move of that character!
Once the story gets to where it needs to go it feels a tad rush. However I’m fully aware I’m nitpicking.
Wrong Turn 2021 currently in theaters but this is defiantly going in the top 10 list of 2021.
