    Situation goes from just a little scary to terrifying.

    The result is sheer, unadulterated nastiness with no apologies.

    The sole saving grace of Wrong Turn is its honesty. You get exactly what you expect -- blood, guts and people being taken to the killing floor. But just because it's honest doesn't make it good.
  4. 40
    Lacks the creepiness and craft of the films that inspired it.

    Lazy would-be horror film.
  6. Standard hack-and-giggle fare, with a few wisecracks mixed in with the gore.
  7. 0
    Low-end schlock that will likely land with a dull thud in the video remainder bin before the frost is on the pumpkin.

    One of my favourite Horror films for a number of reasons, but mainly because its a great concept (that has been done to death now, but here's where it began). A group of likable young adults get on the wrong side of three 'mountain men' who are truly terrifying! It's quite graphic and violent but still quite tame compared to what's coming out these days. Dushku does a great job as our leading lady, with Harrington also doing well as Chris. Overall a fantastic Horror film well worth a look! Expand

    Wrong Turn is a not bad movie. I don't know why a majority of the reviews were negative. It is an interesting story line, and pretty good acting. The only negative thing here is how the first two characters died, they needed it to be visible or at least tell us how the first character died. But all in all, not a bad movie. Expand

    This movie is very clumsy.

    I can appreciate the approach in terms of atmosphere, location and story, but everything about this movie is
    clumsy; Why are those hill billys so invisible? why the wacky acting? why are the characters so dumb? why is the camera work so awkward? You can argue this are all budget issues but that doesn't excuse the lack of focus this movie has... there have been movies made that have more focus than many other films don't.

    This movie is not awful, is just mediocre in almost everything it does; I say this because I can appreciate the idea, but is just a clumsy movie overall.

    VERY gross material - coming from a horror fan. If you're into Texas Chainsaw fare, you'll love it. Think Chainsaw mixed with West Virginia Deliverance - starring Eliza Dushku, Emmanuelle Chriqui & Jeremy Sisto. There are only so many guts in jars that I can stare at in one movie.... Expand

    Solid acting by the cast, The entire film was interesting but its sadly just another rip off of another classic horror film and it does nothing to seperate itself from it besides a change in environment Expand
