The long-lived and consistently unwatchable horror franchise Wrong Turn is being torn apart by fans

Horror truly embraces trends more than any other genre out there, with each decade experiencing its own hyper-fixation. The 2000s saw incredibly mean horror movies come out, where characters faced so much misery that you could call them misanthropic.

That Wrong move The saga has lasted far too long given its actual quality or ideas, with the series somehow spanning seven different entries with just one reboot. For a series that’s almost entirely a one-note gore Olympiad, that’s an impressive number of releases. The question horror fans ask is not just how, but why?

Seeing what might have been a riotously hot version of the series, the horror subreddit wondered how that came about and what the appeal is.

Each film features exactly the same plot and setting. A group of young travelers (at least two attractive female leads) get lost in the Appalachian wilderness of West Virginia and are hunted by inbred cannibal mutants on the hillsides. A glowing endorsement for the West Virginia Tourist Board.

Part of the problem with the movies is definitely the lack of blending and gratuitous violence that ends up feeling mean rather than entertaining. The best comparison is probably to outright slashers like Friday the 13th, a series that prides itself on its kills and its ridiculousness. The tone of these films ensures that you don’t get overwhelmed by the violence because everything is played with a tongue in cheek.

Wrong move, however, is a love letter to Gore only. Around the time of the groundbreaking splatter strip Seen, it was just an idea that studios seemed excited about. The best thing about these films is probably only the first one with Eliza Dushku Buffy the vampire slayer glory in it.


Not all horror has to be artful or thought-provoking, but it certainly helps. Even horror comedies like Evil Dead make more of their over-the-top gore by making them part of the joke. Wrong movehonestly, should have changed lanes. The long-lived and consistently unwatchable horror franchise Wrong Turn is being torn apart by fans
