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.
!!These movies contain examples of:


* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Inbreed long enough and your family will have super powers.
* BlackSpeech: The hillfolk in the series understand English, but most of them forgo speaking it in favor of a bizarre gibberish.
* BreakoutVillain: Three Finger is the only character to appear in all films. In the original, he and his brothers had about the same amount of screentime, and Saw Tooth appeared to be the leader of the group.
* CaliforniaDoubling: All films are set in West Virginia, but first two movies were shot in Canada and the third one was shot in Bulgaria.
* CannibalClan: Initially, the Hilliker family started out with 10 members. By the third movie, they are reduced to two (or three). More members are introduced in the prequels.

* ImAHumanitarian: In the back-story of the films, all the animals have died due to industrial shenanigans and the villainous family of inbred hillbillies resorted to hunt people for food.
* NegativeContinuity: Most of the sequels pretty much ignore everything established in the previous movies, most notably in regards to [[MultipleChoicePast how the antagonists came to be]] or Three Fingers' multiple deaths.
* NumberedSequels: Each sequel is numbered, and each have their own subtitle.
* SequelEscalation: The sequels have more gore, sadism and nudity in them than the original film.
%%* SmarterThanYouLook: The hillbillies.
