The ''Wrong Turn'' franchise is a series of horror films from mid 2000's.

The first three films center around a similar premise: A bunch of city people wander into backwoods of West Virginia and encounter inbred cannibal hillbillies.

The first film was released in 2003, which was followed by two DirectToDVD sequels: ''Wrong Turn 2: Dead End'' in 2007 and ''Wrong Turn 3: Left for Dead'' in 2009. A winter-set fourth film, subtitled ''[[{{Prequel}} Bloody Beginnings]]'', had been released in October 2011. It explores the origins of the hillbillies and is set primarily in an AbandonedHospital (so expect MedicalHorror). A fifth and sixth were also released.

The first film was produced by Creator/StanWinston and the hillbilly makeup were provided by his team.
