From four-time Academy AwardŽ-winning character effects artist Stan Winston (JURASSIC PARK, TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY, ALIENS) and the producers of I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER and RESIDENT EVIL comes WRONG TURN, a film steeped in the traditions of classic '70s-style horror movies.
Chris (Desmond Harrington) has a job interview in Raleigh in three hours and he's making good time in his refurbished classic Mustang convertible ... until an accident miles down the highway turns Chris' three-hour trip into a six-hour wait.
Determined to make his critical appointment, Chris makes a hard U-turn and heads back up the West Virginia highway. Running low on fuel, he finds a dirt road that seemingly intersects the highway after about 20 miles. It's clearly a road less traveled, but to Chris it seems to be a quick fix to get around the highway traffic jam.
Not far away, Jessie (Eliza Dushku) and her friends, Carly (Emmanuelle Chriqui), Carly's boyfriend Scott (Jeremy Sisto), Evan (Kevin Zegers) and his girlfriend Francine (Lindy Booth), stand quiet; stunned as they survey what's left of their road trip after the tires blow out, leaving them stranded deep in the middle of the woods.
Chris heads down the dusty, winding back road, as the green forest canopy overhead casts ominous shadows of twilight on his foreboding path. He loses control around the curve and by the time he can see the disabled Range Rover in front of him it is too late to stop or swerve. The rear wheels lock up and the Mustang roars into the back of the SUV, scattering the people surrounding it.
Luckily, no one is seriously hurt in the collision but egos are bruised and tempers flare. Chris is apologetic and Jessie is the calming force when she discovers the barbed wire that was stretched across the road. The blown out tires were seemingly the result of a prank.
The group quickly bands together, determined to find a phone. Evan and Francine stay with the cars, as the other four make their way down the road. As they venture deeper and deeper into the woods, the idea of a prankster grows dim when they discover a mountain cabin filled with grisly hunting weapons and horrific souvenirs of the hunt.
They are now certain that whomever - or whatever - lives in the cabin are responsible for the barbed-wire trap. What the foursome doesn't know is that Evan and Francine are now dead, mercilessly mutilated by three gruesome mountain men. Facing an uncertain and possibly horrific fate at the hands of these men, the four friends are sure of one thing: they will never go camping again.
