When Kimberly has a violent premonition of a highway pileup she blocks the freeway, keeping a few others meant to die, safe...Or are they? The survivors mysteriously start dying and it's up to Kimberly to stop it before she's next.
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 »
When Halley falls from the cliff her back is to the ground but when she lands she is facing the ground. See more »
Whoo! Whoo-hoo! Oh, yeah!

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 »
"Wrong Turn" is a pretty good recreation of the slasher-horror movies of the early '80, though this time around we have better production values (fancier camera moves, for one thing.) It's very predictable, but then again, what slasher isn't? Except for a slightly overextended beginning, it chugs along at an acceptable pace, giving us a new situation every few minutes. I wish there was more gore, but you can't have everything, and I will admit some of the splatter does *really* capture your attention - especially one part involving an arrow! The climatic sequence seems inspired in part by the one in BAKER COUNTY U.S.A., which also happened to take place in redneck country.
