Wrong TurnDirector: Rob Schmidt, Desmond Harrington, Eliza Dushku, Emmanuelle Chriqui
A turn down an uncharted dirt road leads six young people into a night of pure terror in this horror story. Chris (Desmond Harrington) is driving through West Virginia on his way to a job interview when an auto accident slows highway traffic to a near standstill. Afraid he'll be late, Chris takes a detour down an old dirt road; a distracted Chris doesn't see an SUV stuck in the middle of the road before it's too late, and he plows into the back after his tires suddenly blow. The driver of the SUV, Jessie (Eliza Dushku), was out on a camping trip with four of her friends -- Evan (Kevin Zegers), Francine (Lindy Booth), Carly (Emmanuelle Chriqui), and Scott (Jeremy Sisto) -- when their tires went out, and as Jessie and Chris compare notes on their accidents, they discover that the road has been sabotaged with barbed wire. With both parties in need of a telephone, Evan and Francine are left to look after the cars while the other four set out to find help. However, Evan and Francine soon discover they've been led into a horrible trap, and as Chris, Jessie, and their friends search for help, they find that they've fallen victim not to local pranksters, but a gang of inbred backwoods killers with a taste for blood. Wrong Turn was produced in part by Stan Winston, a legendary special-effects artist whose work has appeared in such films as Jurassic Park, Aliens, and Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

I was dying to see it for months, when i went to go see it in theatres it was taken out for violence which made me even more excited. Than my mom bought it and i was dissapointed. The special effects were good but not as good as what Fangoria magazine said. And it kind of ripped off of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and the Hills Have Eyes. The best things about it were Aliza Dushku since shes hot, and the hillbillies because they were funny.
Its not a great movie,not one of those that you will watch again probably but worth a one time watch anyways.A group of people are attacked and terrorize by a band of inbred-deformed people(?) in the mountains of West Virginia. The inbreds are 10 times worse than the folks in 'Deliverance'.Legendary effects man Stan Winston worked on this film and frankly I was disappointed with the quick shots on most of the inbreds--you didnt really get those long agonizing looks at these weirdos to see all the details of their grossness.And I wondered with all these terrible physical deformities of the inbreds how were they able to function so well.None of them were Stephen Hawkings but they could drive cars and make and shoot bows and arrows.The things were so deformed they couldnt talk and looked almost like monsters.I would have liked to seen them appear a bit more human.I think that would have made the tale even more scarier. But all in all it was a pretty good tale if not terribly original.There have been a slew of films about us inbred hicks attacking city slickers and this one is middle of the road.
The best horror movie, it has great acting with all the charactors! It has some gross scenes but if u like those tipes of movies it would be nothing to you! The plot was great as well! i would recomend it to people who likes scary movies.
i saw the comercials expecting... another off-the-wall ax murder movie. But it ended up being similar to my 3 favorite horror movies. TCM. the hills have eyes, and HOuse of 1000 corpses. A crazy plot, with funny, scacy, and just plain off-the-wall canabalism. I recomend it for people with, assorted, and disturbings tastes i horror movies
I was really disappointed about this movie.I read all these reviews and I got so hyped up. My sister was like 'Its the best movie ever!Its so0o0o0o scary!' Then when we rented it and watched it, we laughed at her. They so tried to copy Texas Chainsaw Massacre but w/ unreal freak-weirdos. My mom wasn't even scared! Its so predictable and unrealistic.
Chris(Desmond Harrington) is on his way to a job interveiw when he comes upon the end of a line of vehicles at a stand still due to a car accident. He takes a back road, that he thinks is a short cut, and runs into the back of an SUV stuck in the road. Chris, Jessie(Eliza Dushku), and two of her friends go looking for a phone. theyt leave two of Jessie's friends to lok after the car. They soon find out that that was a bad idea. What was supposed to be a peaceful camping trip and job interview turned out to be a fight for thier lives.
Now this movie is hot this is a must see. This movie is good from the start to finish!!! Gotta see this movie if u already didnt.
Another stupid movie about "teens" getting murdered by a strange family...save your time and money
I thought that this movie was very well done! The whole movie is very frightening and I think that all horror fans will love it.
I thought the movie was predictibal and not all that scary but it was still enjoyable. The acting it the movie was all good and the story was ok as well. I thought the stunts and the creature effects were awsome. All in all it was amovie i would watch more then once.
This movie is an excellent slasher flick! If you're into graphic murder scenes and don't really need an Oscar-winning plot to enjoy a movie, you'll love this! You'll have some jumps and laughs, which make for a great movie. BTW, I'm from the boonies of WV, and we don't really have mutant, in-bred, cannibalistic families living here--but I'm glad the movie uses my beautiful state. :)
This movie is absolutly terrifing, and leads you on a suspenful ride of jumps and tears. Everyone should watch it!
Wrong Turn is an original horror classic. It has smart, chilling scares with it. I know critics didn't like it, but that's their opinion. I loved this movie, it's one of my favorites. Wrong Turn Rated: R Starring: Eliza Dushku, Desmond Harrington, Emanuelle Chriqui, and Jeremy Sisto Running Time: 80 Minutes; 1 Hour 20 Minutes Director: Rob Schmidt
