Wrong Turn (2021)
Directed by Mike P. Nelson, Wrong Turn was released in theaters on January 26th, 2021, met with early reviews that criticized the film’s inconsistent writing & troublesome plot points. Hey, any franchise that can get to seven films is a winner in our book, even if it’s about cannibalistic hunters & murderers.
The film stars Charlotte Vega (The Bookshop), Bill Sage (American Psycho), Daisy Head (Underworld: Blood Wars), Emma Dumont (Inherent Vice), and Matthew Modine (Vision Quest, The Dark Knight Rises).
The movie, like many 2020 projects was heavily impacted by the global pandemic, struggling to decide on a release date given the film’s smaller budget and essentially “no-name” cast. Ultimately, it made sense for the project to celebrate not only its own release but the Wrong Turn franchise as a whole with a single-day release, followed by a format in which the movie could see some earnings.
Wrong Turn Franchise
The Wrong Turn series kicked off in 2003 with the original Wrong Turn which starred Eliza Dushku (Bring it On) & Jeremy Sisto (Waitress). The series as a whole follows various families of odd-looking cannibals in West Virginia who hunt & kill people, giving fans of “torture porn” something to look forward to on Saturday nights.
From there, the Wrong Turn series would earn another five sequels before the upcoming reboot, including 2007’s Wrong Turn 2: Dead End, 2009’s Wrong Turn 3: Left for Dead, 2011’a Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings, 2012’s Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines, and 2014’s Wrong Turn 6: Last Resort. One would think a “Right Turn” project would’ve been made at some point, right?
