Perhaps, I've become a bit of a WRONG TURN snob because I thought the first one was alright enough (tough to ever fully frown when your flick stars Eliza Dushku)... but then came the sequel! WRONG TURN 2 absolutely destroyed the mold in terms of quality direct-to-DVD sequels. Director, Joe Lynch, absolutely spoiled us with a fantastic cast, killer kills, and dark humor. Hence, I was expecting nothing less from WT3. Suffice to say, lightning only struck once in terms of quality direct-to-DVD sequels.
What we have with WRONG TURN 3 is more like a direct-to-TV delivery. From the plain credits to the laughable score to the ridiculously CGI squirts of blood, this number three smells more like "number two" and is an insult to the series. By all means, if it was merely a random cannibal killer gore-monger, then perhaps I wouldn't be so harsh. But this is a part of a now very well-respected horror series and there is no excuse for such a sloppy production.
I'm actually quite in awe of how poorly the makers have strayed from the finesse of the first two. You've got cookie-cutter criminals, absolutely zero suspense, and the cheesiest dialogue this side of a hunk of swiss. Absolutely nothing is expanded on in terms of the "backstory" of the first two. And the whole thing is topped off with a totally ridiculous final scene that makes no sense whatsoever and ultilmately sucks.

An extended Behind the Scenes feature that shows a great deal of hard work truly was expelled in order to deliver such a sad result.
