“This isn’t happening!!” Uhhh… yeah it is.
More young people are in for a slaughtering in Wrong Turn, a reboot of the cannibal slasher-horror franchise that kicked off back in 2003 with Eliza Dushku. Charlotte Vega (Warrior Nun) leads the cast this time around, playing a young woman who is in for a not-so-great time when she and her buddies take a wrong turn on the Appalachian Trail. It’s time to meet the locals.
The new international trailer below offers up less than that official drop back in December, but it does reiterate some of the film’s gnarly turns and – importantly – comes with a home entertainment release date: February 26th.
Wrong Turn, directed by Mike P. Nelson (The Domestics) and penned by franchise creator Alan B. McElroy, hits select US cinemas on January 26th and opens in select Australian cinemas on February 4th.
Official synopsis for Wrong Turn:
The terrifying, edge-of-your-seat thriller follows six friends from New York taking a hiking trip to the beautiful West Virginia Mountains who unwittingly fall prey to a savage sect known as The Foundation. WRONG TURN: THE FOUNDATION taps into the most basic human fear of being hunted, and delivers a taut horror with relentless adversaries, nightmarish twists and turns, and devastating consequences. New Yorkers Jes, Darius, Milla, Adam, Gary, and Luis are best friends embarking on a hiking trip in the Appalachian Mountains. Eager to begin and awed by the beauty around them, they instantly forget the advice of the local innkeeper to “not to stray from the path.” When Darius veers off the trail, he leads his friends into a deadly trap, pitting them against a cruel and secretive mountain cult. When the friends are put on trial for the death of one of the cult members, Jes must make a life changing choice to save her friends.
