Chris has a job interview in Raleigh in three hours and he's making good time--until an accident miles down the highway turns Chris' manageable trip into a six-hour wait. Determined to make his critical appointment, Chris makes a hard U-turn and heads back up the West Virginia highway. Running low on fuel, he finds a shortcut, it's clearly a road less traveled, but to Chris it seems to be a quick fix to avoid the traffic jam. Not far away, Jessie and her friends, Carly, Scott, Evan and Francine, stand quietly--stunned as they survey what's left of their road trip after the… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"While this movie doesn't have the warped sensibilities of 1977's similarly plotted The Hills Have Eyes, it has decent performances and genuine suspense."
‑ John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press
"A blood-simple backwoods spatterfest that makes shameless use of the same old antirural moonshine Hollywood's been bootlegging for decades."
‑ Scott Brown, Entertainment Weekly
"This horror flick about young campers stalked and slaughtered by gruesome backwoods barbarians is a fairly decent crossbreeding of Friday the 13th and Deliverance."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"It's the usual quick-cut, this-is-all-we-can-show-you R-rated mayhem."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"Ao contrário da maior parte das produções do gênero realizadas nos últimos anos, este filme acaba se revelando acima da média graças à boa direção de Rob Schmidt."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"It's gruesome and nasty and a heck of a lot of fun for people who get a kick out of Fangoria."
‑ Randy Cordova, Arizona Republic
"Lazy would-be horror film."
‑ Anita Gates, New York Times
"The understatement of the year. Essentially, ax-wielding rednecks unite in a slasher flick that drives itself into a brick wall of no return."
‑ Christopher Smith, Bangor Daily News (Maine)
"A cut above the recent lot of slasher films...it does not feel as if it has to cater to audiences who want every plot point spoon fed to them."
‑ Bill Clark, FromTheBalcony
"...talent does not matter much, just as long as the women?who, of course, all look like supermodels?wear skimpy, transparent outfits throughout the movie."
‑ Blake French, NutzWorld
"This self-styled throwback to the down-and-dirty horror films of the 1970s and '80s never delivers what it definitely promises."
‑ Mark Olsen, L.A. Weekly
"A negative pickup by Fox, dumped into theaters on Friday without benefit of press previews, Wrong Turn is steeped only in frightless torpor."
‑ Scott Foundas, Variety
"It gives what it promises: violence, creeps, and solid performances from the great cast..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Headed in only one direction: straight into the toilet."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Wrong Turn is basically a well-made waste of time."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
