They find a weird cabin in the middle of nowhere, where three violent cannibalistic mountain men with the appearance of monsters live. The two couples try to escape from the mountain men while chased by them. Written by

The promotion for this film was minimal due to the MPAA deeming the majority of TV Spots and Trailers "Too Intense" for the viewers. Even the commercials that were aired were heavily trimmed. See more »
When Chris goes back into his car after asking the truck driver about the accident, he sits in the seat, and you can clearly see that it's the scenery that moves and not the car. See more »
Whoo! Whoo-hoo! Oh, yeah!
OK, you're great. You got the line?

There's an additional scene halfway through the end credits, showing the fate of a state trooper who discovers a body in the burned-down cabin. See more »
I went into the screener of WRONG TURN not expecting much. After the film was over, I was pleasantly surprised. The plot has been recycled a few times, but this version of the "kids stranded in the woods" scenario has some good points. We have seen this before in Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and more recently in X-Files Episode "Home". A group of young adults are stranded deep in the woods of West Virginia, and are hunted by a "family of cannibalistic freaks. Wrong Turn is very predictable, and the gore is abundant, but the film is delivered in an in-your-face style, which kept me interested. The acting is on par with most slasher flicks, which is good enough to get the point across. All in all, it was a good waste of a boring thursday evening.
I do want to spoil much, but the tree top chase is very well done. Any fan of the genre might be surprised by Wrong Turn...I was.
