Will the producers behind the series cook up a Wrong Turn 7 or have fans had all they can stomach? While horror franchise Wrong Turn isn't quite as popular or well-known as Halloween or Friday The 13th it's proven surprisingly robust since it debuted in 2003. The first entry starred Eliza Dushku and followed some friends who are hunted down by cannibals in the woods of West Virginia. Thanks to a good cast and some effective gore Wrong Turn became a modest hit and spawned a franchise.
In a rare case of a straight to DVD sequel being even better than the original, Wrong Turn 2: Dead End took the premise and made it a fun, super gory dark comedy starring Henry Rollins, with a score composed by Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead). The surprise acclaim that greeted Dead End quickly led to Wrong Turn 3: Left For Dead in 2009, which was met with mostly negative reviews. Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings acted as a prequel to the original, as did the next two entries. Most of the later sequels were met with a negative reception with Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines, in particular, lambasted for its mean-spirited tone and weak screenplay.
With little sign of a new movie happening fans want to know if a Wrong Turn 7 is being developed or if the franchise is cooked?
Wrong Turn 6: Last Resort Was Released In 2014
Wrong Turn 6: Last Resort was the most recent entry in the horror franchise and was released in 2014. Like the previous installment, it was met with poor reviews from fans and critics, and later became the subject of controversy when it was found the sequel featured the image of a deceased woman on a missing person poster; this led to Fox pulling all DVD and Blu-ray copies of the film. While there were reports of Wrong Turn 7 being developed in the years following Last Resort, with reports it could go into production in 2017, the project has yet to come together.
Wrong Turn Might Get Rebooted
It was reported in late 2018 that Constantin Film (Resident Evil) were preparing a remake of the first film. Original screenwriter Alan McElroy (Halloween 4: The Return Of Michael Myers) is set to write the script while Mike P. Nelson will direct. This reboot was described as a timely, re-imagined take on the concept, suggest the new Wrong Turn will feature a more political angle.
If the reboot does come together, that likely means Wrong Turn 7 will never happen. A fresh start could be for the best, however, since the mediocre quality of several of the later sequels has somewhat tainted the brand.
