Anyone seen it yet ? I'm thinking about seeing it tommorow but it looks like it could very easily suck.

yeah i saw it.  The first half of the movie is promising.  Good 80's style cliches.  Really fuckin hot girls as the leads.  But the 2nd half of the very short movie is no good.  The plot doesnt really go anywhere and the climax isnt even exciting.  I would watch but wait till video.  You have to check out EMMANUELLE CHRIQUI she is smoking.

Ah, it sucked. Very dissapointing. And I hate "hot" girls. They're nothing but makeup and bones.

:evil: Don't ever talk bad about the Dushku! What shameful behavior.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

She sucks. Of all the bad acting in the movie, she was by far the worst. Mainly because she paraded around like she was the best. Such arrogance and ignorance.

What the hell do you think Cheesy slasher flicks are based around?

Oh, I totally agree. I mean "hot" girls outside horror movies.

I love Eliza Dushku...and that maybe the only reason I'd go see this movie.

This film reminded me a lot of the "Home" episode from "X-Files." A lot of potential went to waste; there was a good premise and it had some fun/creepy villains, but the problem was the direction and editing. All suspense was lacking. The opening, pre-credit 'kill' could have been a lot tenser. And it throws in some cliche fake scares that just do more harm than good. And the kicker was a incredibly annoying character that you just can't wait to see get the 'axe' - pun intended.

That 'Home' episode was probably the creepiest episode EVER (although I haven't seen them all, so I may be wrong). Anyway, I thought Wrong Turn sucked quite a bit. Desmond Harrington seems like a good actor, and Jeremy Sisto has been good, but both of the female leads were totally annoying. I used to like Eliza Dushku, when she first showed up on Buffy, but whoever said she exudes arrogance is spot on. It gets old. And anyway, what's with these horror movies with these 80s style horror movies with almost no gore and no nudity?

I agree, whats the point?  It is like when they have the Friday the 13th marathons on TNT...without the gore and nudity, the premise of the film is lost.

I read somwhere that Wrong Turn was trying to be an omage to the 70/early eighties horror flicks.  The first 30 min were promising.  The two who have sex and smoke pot get killed with some good looking gore.  But i reaaly wish these movies would just show some nudity to at least complete the package.  2nd and 3rd act sucked.  The one lead girl not Dushku was ridiculously hot.

Well, it wasn't even a tenth as bad as "Jeepers Creepers", though the climax was so boringly predictable it could have come from that movie.  I wish Jeremy Sisto's character had lived longer; the guy's way too underused.  All in all I thought it wasn't too bad.
