I’m not sure whether it qualifies as a guilty pleasure or not, but I quite like the Wrong Turn series of films.

My memories of the original may be clouded by the images of Eliza Dushku in a tight vest, but all three have tickled my horror taste buds thanks to being quite nasty pieces of work.

Which is why I’m looking forward to seeing the fourth, even though it has been out in the States for some time.

This time round we get the prequel treatment, heading back to 1974 with the disfigured mutants of the earlier films mere youngsters.

The film centres on the Glenville Sanatorium, where they are locked up, before thing take a nasty turn of course.

Fast forward to 2003, and a group of college friends somehow find themselves at the now-abandoned asylum, only to learn that the former inmates enjoy returning to the scenes of their former gory glories.

Directed by Declan O’Brien (who helmed Wrong Turn 3), Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings screens on Saturday, August 25.
