Tuesday Couch Potato: Wrong Turn (2003)

Hi! I am joining TCP today on October 13th edition. This week's theme is anything about Urban Legend, some creepy, gory stories which are circulated as true and were popularized in Big screen. Well, I have some favorite for that. In Fact it's my favorite thriller and screamer movie for me. Honestly , I have watched it for the zth times already.


Wrong Turn (2003)

The movie is about?

The story is about Chris Flynn driving his car for a job interview in another city. However, an accident with a trunk transporting chemical products blocks the highway and Chris looks for an alternative route through the mountains of West Virginia to accomplish his schedule. Due to a lack of attention, he crashes another car parked in the middle of the road with flat tires. Chris meets a group of five friends, who intended to camp in the forest, and they decide to leave the couple Francine and Evan on the place, while Chris, Jessie, Carly and her fiancé Scott tries to find some help. They find a weird cabin in the middle of nowhere, where three violent cannibalistic mountain men with the appearance of monsters live. The two couples try to escape from the mountain men while chased by them.

What's worse than a leather-faced madman chasing you through the bush with a chainsaw? How about three!! I had my heart racing watching this movie. This is actually my all-time favorite scary flick. `Wrong Turn' was in one word an utter shock to the system. There hasn't been a film this gory, grotesque and chilling in a very long time. Not since the 1970's `Texas Chainsaw Massacre' has a horror film such as this been made. The best way to describe the experience is that if you took 2001's `Joy Ride' and `Jeepers Creepers' added 1972's `Deliverance' then threw them all in a blender. You may come up with `Wrong Turn'.

The tension in this film is harrowing and relentless as it bats you back and forth. You are exhausted and maybe even queasy when you come out of the theater. But if you love horror films then you probably have an ear to ear grin as well.

Look at some of the scenes below:

Memorable Lines:

Jessie: Carly, look at me, OK? Scott died protecting us. We need to keep ourselves alive, or it was for nothing. OK? We're all in this together, Carl. Come on.
Carly: [whimpering] I want him back.
Jessie: I know, I know. Carl, look at me, OK? Look. We're gonna stay alive. We're gonna get out of this. We're gonna get out of these woods, we're gonna find the police and we're gonna make sure those motherfucks are punished for this. OK?

It is really is a nice movie. You have to have this in the horror collection. It's a good one to whip out every now and then, especially before your big summer camping trip. One of the better horror flicks of the 2000's.
