In 2003, Wrong Turn hacked its way into cinemas. The movie – a brutal slasher film about a group of teens terrorised by cannibals – starred Eliza Dushku, Jeremy Sisto and Kevin Zegers.
Although Wrong Turn received mixed reviews from critics and so-so box office returns, the film proved popular with the home video crowd, leading to a direct-to-DVD sequel. Wrong Turn 2: Dead End made its debut in 2007, and thanks to a positive response it kick-started a long-running collection of Wrong Turn direct-to-DVD movies.
