$24.99 at our Best Buy, really, does anyone pay these crazy prices for these b-movies knowing they'll be in the discount bin before long.
I can see someone shelling for something like a Shout! Factory edition on the day of release, but this? and at these prices?
My Best Buy was selling it for $16.99 this week. Do prices differ from store to store?

Canadian retail outlets are generally more expensive than their United States' counterparts, though it is changing slightly.

The "town" depicted in Wrong Turn 5 reminded me of the Sesame Street sets. Or those obviously fake studio backlot sets you saw alot on TV shows like The Twilight Zone.

I thought this entry was OK but I'm done with this series. They're just getting sillier and dumber.

Thank the Lord I read your review and thank you for saving me some bucks. This was not even worth the five dollar rental, I had read some good advance press about this being one of those killer b-movie slasher throwbacks to the eighties-what bullshit, even the lowest budget eighties film was never this bad.
Plywood sets, wooden acting, unlikeable characters, make-up jobs on the inbreds that looked like twenty buck Wal-Mart Halloween masks. This was just awful from start to finish. The town sets reminded me of the scrolling, repeating backgrounds in the old Scooby-Doo cartoons, either that or a cheesy seventies theme park like Frontier Town in upstate NY.
I loved the first with Dushku, the second with Rollins was pretty kick ass and the fourth quite watchable, but this was one of the worst films I've seen this year. Definitely my vote for biggest disappointment.

No idea why they cheaped out on this fifth entry, I thought the fourth had one of the coolest locations yet in that snowy, abandoned insane asylum.
It really does look like something out of Ed Wood's Night Of The Ghouls or Bride of the Monster, you expect the backdrop to shimmer or shake when the cast walks by.

Doug bradley deserves praise for his acting here, by contrast the others are a lil above high school play quality. The movie was good, better than theatricals I've seen this year.

I enjoyed it more than the last couple of installments, mainly for Bradley's commanding presence and some genuinely good gore. Not fantastic, but a fun watch.

I thought it was quite entertaining. I didn't enjoy it as much as Part 4, but it was still better than most DTV crap coming out these days.

If you liked the previous installments, it's worth at least a rental.

I rented it for $1.20 at the redbox, so i have no regrets.
WT5 is very bloody, so it got that going for it. This entry got very cartoonish and I just kept thinking "what kind of town is this that has NO people??" It kinda felt a bit like Carpenter's Assault On Precinct 13 at times. The ending was pretty stupid and that girl's screams were so bad. I'm a fan of the series, so I will watch part 6 when it comes out, but I hope for an improvement next time.
