Wrong Turn Movie Review

Six young people are stranded and chased through the backwoods of West Virginia by three disfigured inbreds who are well trained with weapons and love to kill--a simple plot that reminds me of a cross between The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Hills Have Eyes. I remember seeing this in the theatre when it first came out and I later received it as a gift, and having just finished watching it again, I think I like it more than ever.

Don't go that way...

There is nothing outstanding about it--it is just a really solid horror movie, from the believable fear shown by the victims to the creepy silliness of the killers (one in particular) to some really cool death scenes to intense moments here and there. The cast, lead by Eliza Dushku (Dollhouse, Tru Calling) and Desmond Harrington (Ghost Ship, Dexter), is pretty strong here, and mercifully the weaker actors are killed off fairly early. This is just a fun, cool horror film with a nod to 70’s grindhouse. I recommend it.
