On one last road trip before they're sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers and their girlfriends get into an accident that calls their local sheriff to the scene. Thus begins a terrifying experience where the teens are taken to a secluded house of horrors, where a young, would-be killer is being nurtured.
Chris Flynn is driving his car for a job interview in another city. However, an accident with a trunk transporting chemical products blocks the highway and Chris looks for an alternative route through the mountains of West Virginia to accomplish his schedule. Due to a lack of attention, he crashes another car parked in the middle of the road with flat tires. Chris meets a group of five friends, who intended to camp in the forest, and they decide to leave the couple Francine and Evan on the place, while Chris, Jessie, Carly and her fiancé Scott tries to find some help. 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

Into pre-production when McElroy had decided to drop the idea of Chris Flynn's victim company being late twenties adults in order to attract the Teenage Slasher Horror crowd he set Jesse Burlingame, her best friend Carly and other friends to the age of 19, setting them as college teenagers still in their freshmen year of higher education. The decision came about when referring to the scripted opening of the film in which rock climbing college teenage couple Halley and Rich are subsequently killed by the Mountain Men. See more »

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 really like this movie. I've seen it 3 times, once in the theatre and then twice on DVD (the unrated version). There's a big difference between the version shown in theatres and the unrated version: as usual, the theatre version is cut a lot, leaving out some pretty gruesome scenes that are not for the squeamish or faint-at-heart.
The premise for the movie may be a little cliché (mutated, possibly inbred, group of people living in the remote countryside, wreaking havoc on innocent tourists), but, oh, the way it's carried out! I liked it more than the original The Hills Have Eyes (haven't seen the new one yet).
If you're into horror, I highly recommend the unrated version of Wrong Turn.
