Sheriff Carver


While rafting in the Bluefish River area, four college kids are attacked by the mutant cannibal hillbilly Three Finger. Only the teenager Alex succeeds in escaping running through the woods. Meanwhile, a group of dangerous criminals are transported from the West Virginia Grafton Penitentiary in a custody bus escorted by three security guards through the backwoods. When they park in a rest stop in a police station, Sheriff Carver is informed about the missing teenagers. The bus driver heads to their destination with the guards and the prisoners but a tow truck driven by Three Finger hits the bus that falls off the road. They are attacked by Three Finger and the perilous Carlo Chavez dominates the guards and the other prisoners. When they accidentally meet Alex, the girl tells how sick and threatening Three Finger is; sooner the survivals discover that Alex is telling the truth.

Did You Know?


Borislav Iliev is the third actor to play 'Three-Finger'. Julian Richings was the original Three-Finger, but was replaced by Jeff Scrutton in Wrong Turn 2: Dead End (2007). Borislav replaces Jeff in Wrong Turn 3: Left for Dead (2009). See more »


When the police officers all meet in the station before trying to find the prisoners the chief states that there is 'a man' (implying Nate the officer) with the prisoners. There were two officers, Walter and Nate when the bus crashed. It isn't possible for the chief to know that Walter had already died as not even the sheriff knew. No one other than Nate and the prisoners saw Walter die so the chief stating there is only one man with the prisoners is incorrect. See more »


Sophie: Alex thinks I'm a slut. Do you think I'm a slut?
Brent: Yes. But that is what I love about you.
Sophie: I thought you loved my tits.
Brent: I do. You have perfect tits. I could hold them forever.

What A Shame
7 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am a big fan of the wrong turn series, especially the first one, i have only seen the second one once. But this film, oh what a shame, it does let the series down. The main problem with it is the acting and the dialogue. The story itself or the idea for the story isn't bad at all, but why choose such cheesy actors delivering such cheesy lines. The main lead copper isn't too bad, the female lead is okay, but the rest of them, oh where to start. There isn't enough hillbillies in it either, 2 or 3 of them at a count when there is meant to be a family of them according to the original wrong turn series. They seem to try and take this story back to the original woods too but somehow it just doesn't work, it doesn't have the same feel, maybe because this was set a night and the original was in the day. The special effects, gore and CGI leaves much to be desired too, its so cheesy its not stomach churning, more comical. But its not the worse I have seen/watched this year and I kind of did like the ending too. The worse of the year for me still goes to Cabin Fever 2.
