On the way to an important appointment, Chris (Desmond Harrington) takes an unexpected detour down an old track to avoid a traffic jam blocking his planned route. When he turns a bend and loses control, he crashes into a car immobilised by barbed wire in the road. The car belongs to five friends on a camping trip who appear to have been the victim of a prank and all they end up stranded in the woods...
Two of the group stay with the car whilst the rest go in search of help. Their hopes are dashed after arriving at a remote, sinister cabin hidden in the woods where they make a gruesome and terrifying discovery. The run down cabin belongs to a trio of grossly disfigured cannibalistic mountain men. The mutants have picked off the missing members from the group and bought them back to the cabin to be butchered and eaten. Realising there`s more prey out in the woods, they set out to find them all and the race for survival is on!

Your Opinions and Comments
Wrong Turn purports to be an homage to `70s horror, but even that decade`s run-of-the-mill fare wasn`t this telegraphed or repetitive, not to mention bereft of gratuituous nudity. Cabin Fever and House of 1000 Corpses paid tribute far better on every level.
Wrong Turn feels like a silly horror film from time to time, but there is enough blood, guts, gore, screams and inventive deaths to entertain any easy-going audience. At least video/audio quality is pretty good.
