Wrong Turn is a horror movie from 2003 that is written by Alan B. McElroy and directed by Rob Schmidt. As Chris Flynn (Desmond Harrington) drives through West Virginia to a job interview, he is forced to change his course due to a chemical spill. Since he is unfamiliar with the local roads, he asks for directions and ends up on a dirt road where he loses control of his car and crashes into a stranded car full of friends on a hiking trip. Jessie (Eliza Dushku), Scott (Jeremy Sisto), Evan (Kevin Zegers), Carly (Emmanuelle Chriqui), and Francine (Lindy Booth) seem to have hit barbed wire with their car, and, along with Chris, enter the woods to investigate. The friends find a cabin in the woods that is occupied by three disfigured cannibals and they begin to realize that their lives are on the line. As members of the group slowly begin to get picked off one by one, the group struggles to keep their wits about them as they navigate the cannibals' woods. Will these hikers escape the deadly trap they've found themselves in or is this the end of the line for them?

    A blood-simple backwoods spatterfest that makes shameless use of the same old antirural moonshine Hollywood's been bootlegging for decades.
