“It gets the job done spitefully, carelessly, with no joy or self-satisfaction. The story is rote, the gore routine, the tone callous and un-fun. The film was made for next-to-nothing in Bulgaria, features a cast predominantly made up of no-name British actors doing terrible American accents […] and was very obviously shot predominantly on an indoor soundstage.” Blu-ray.com

“A couple of cool, yet repulsively gory death scenes aside, Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines is yet another unnecessary entry in the already drained franchise, with no plot, zero scares, cheap make-up effects, awful execution, and dumb, poorly-acted characters.” CineMarvellous!

“Alternating between juvenility and mean-spiritedness, the excessive sex and gore will appease some and others will wish they’d spent their money on something else. The main cast is made up of European actors who do a fabulous job with American accents. Doug Bradley does his best Jigsaw impression in this Bulgaria(?!) shot shit flick.” Cool Ass Cinema

“A combination of misleading plot, British actors shipped to Hungary and there trying to sound American, sets that look like they’ve been made of a cheap Lego substitute and cheapo Halloween-mask make-up effects for the villains.” Vegan Voorhees

” …O’Brien constantly cuts away from the main action to show a bunch of random people getting offed by the cannibals. While this certainly ups the body count, it also prevents the film from building up any momentum or suspense for that matter. And while the flick is enjoyable for a while, it does get a bit cruel near the end, which diminishes a lot of the fun.” The Video Vacuum
