There’s something out there in the woods as we prepare for a brand new Wrong Turn reboot movie. Back in 2003, director Rob Schmidt stalked Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s Eliza Dushku through the remote forests of West Virginia.
While the original Wrong Turn was a mixed bag of cannibalistic horror, things took an upturn for Wrong Turn 2: Dead End in 2007. The sequel was easily the best-reviewed entry in the franchise, but sadly, everything went downhill from there. Spanning from 2003 – 2014, there have been six Wrong Turn movies of asylums, motels, and prequel stories.
With filming wrapping on Wrong Turn: The Foundation, horror hounds can get a first glimpse of Mike P. Henson’s hungry hillbillies. Although there’s no sign of Three Finger, the first poster shows a more mature era of the franchise.
The story reportedly takes a group of doomed friends to Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. As they head out to enjoy a scenic stroll on the Appalachian Trail, they cross paths with “The Foundation”. This backward community has lived in the isolation of the mountains since before the Civil War, and safe to say, they don’t like newcomers.
Part The Hills Have Eyes, part 2001 Maniacs, Henson is on directorial duties with original Wrong Turn writer Alan B. McElroy penning the script. The cast impressively includes Stranger Things‘ Matthew Modine and teases Wrong Turn: The Foundation is “coming soon”.
