Reviews in German: " Nichts für Zartbesaitete ist dieser Horrorfilm. Während der Fahrt zu einem
Vorstellungsgespräch, das ihn durch die Appalachen in West-Virginia führt,
stösst Chris Finn auf eine geheimnisvolle Hütte, in der eine kannibalische
Sippschaft haust, die durch jahrelange Inzucht schrecklich entstellt ist.
Zusammen mit einer Gruppe gestrandeter Tramper muss Chris um sein Leben
rennen." (zz. in NZZ Ticket)

"Wrong Turn" suffers a fate similar to that of many other horror and
supernatural thrillers released in the last decade: It leaves you with the
feeling that you're watching an episode of "The X-Files," only Mulder and
Scully never show up. In this case, the feeling is especially strong, as the
movie closely recalls an episode called "Home," featuring the inbred Peacock
brothers. Perhaps Rupert Murdoch (the owner of the studio and the network
behind the movie and the show) has a found a new way to repurpose horror.

Like the TV episode, "Wrong Turn" eventually leads to a murderous family with
a genetic pattern that would hearten European royal families of yore -- only
these guys also eat their victims...." (L.A. Times)

"Wer "Wrong Turn" gesehen hat, der wird den Film nicht vergessen, sagt
Produzent Stan Winston. Dann wird es vorbei sein mit dem unbeschwerten Campen
im idyllischen Wald unter freiem Himmel. Das kann schon sein, zumal das für
jeden gut gemachten Horrorfilm gilt. Mit "Wrong Turn" will uns Regisseur Rob
Schmidt das Fürchten lernen. Und das gelingt ihm auch. Sein Film ist ein
souveräner Horrorfilm, die Story ist ebenso konventionell wie die Gestaltung
der menschlichen Monster. Aber wer sich ein wenig Gruseln will im Kino, dem
sei dieser Film (übrigens nach dem Kinoerfolg "Resident Evil" der zweite
internationale Action-Horror-Thriller koproduziert von der Münchner
Constantin) empfohlen. Nur eines wünscht man dem Zuschauer nicht: dass er
jemals die falsche Entscheidung trifft." (Heidi Reutter in kino-kino)
