YMMV: Wrong Turn
  • Cliché Storm: The first one rigorously follows cliches. This is averted in the sequels, which often slaughter the cast indiscriminately (often randomly killing the "obvious" leads early on)
  • Damsel Scrappy:
    • Carly! She spends a majority of the first film screaming "I CAN'T!" This is even referenced in the commentary, where she is referred to as "Annoying Girl".
    • Bridget from Bloody Beginnings for several viewers, though not quite to the extent of Carly. Her antics include demanding a vote on whether or not the group saves their friend from the cannibals.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
    • Dale Murphy from Dead End. That he's played by Henry Rollins is a big plus.
    • Nina, from the same film, is pretty popular with most fans as well.
    • Angela from Bloodlines is also rounding up quite a fanbase
  • Special Effects Failure:
    • All of the CGI effects in Left for Dead.
    • Clare's decapitation in Bloody Beginnings. Thankfully, the rest of the film averts this.
