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 Direct-to-DVD sequels: Wrong Turn 2: Dead End in 2007 and Wrong Turn 3: Left for Dead in 2009. A winter-set fourth film, subtitled Bloody Beginnings, had been released in October 2011. It explores the origins of the hillbillies and is set primarily in an Abandoned Hospital (so expect Medical Horror). A fifth and sixth were also released.The first film was produced by Stan Winston and the hillbilly makeup were provided by his team.
After the End: The reality television show which is being shot in Dead End is based on this setting.
Annoying Arrows: After getting shot by two arrows in Dead End, Dale just asks: "Is that all you got, bitch?"
Anti-Villain: Brandon in Left for Dead is Type I. He constantly avoids doing anything unpleasant to the protagonists unlike other prisoners and even helps them in the end to get away. Subverted towards the very end though where he kills The Hero to steal the money and swiftly meets his Karmic Death.
Death by Sex: Francine and Evan in 1. M and Elena in 2. Sophie and Brent in 3. Jenna, Vincent, Bridget, and Sara in 4. Cruz, Gus, and Billy in 5
Averted and subverted as well in 5. Averted by the cop and random girl, who have sex in a car but survive. Subverted with Lita, who has a pulse when the movie ends... but probably won't live much loner.
Played straight and averted in Last Resort. Played straight with Toni and Jillian, both of whom have sex. Also literally played straight with Brian, who's suffocated by Sally with her vagina mid-sex. However, Nymphomaniac Sally and Danny survive the film, though they are villains.
Decoy Protagonist: Mara in Dead End and, briefly, Kimberly Caldwell in the same film.
Fanservice: Dead End has Elena undressing for a staged sex scene between her and Jake. Jake isn't really keen on this, however.
Bloody Beginnings introduces it's cast by having straight & lesbian sex scenes at the same time.
Bloodlines features 3 sex scenes, one of which involves two random characters we never see again.
Final Girl: Jessie in the first film, Nina in the second, and Alex in the third.
Nina from 2 might be pushing it. She does save Jake at the end and technically kills the villains but most of the actual heavy lifting by the good guys is done by Dale who had performed a Heroic Sacrifice a few minutes earlier that saved their lives.
That hardly makes her less of a final girl; she was the last female character standing. That's what a final girl is. Alex from 3 did absolutely nothing and she still counts.
In Part 4, this is averted. Kenia and Sara last to the end, but are killed.
Lita from Part 5. She had a pulse when the movie ended at least...
