The new Wrong Turn, a reimagining of the six-film franchise that started with the 2003 original of the same name, is coming home on Blu-ray and DVD in February, with deleted scenes, and feature length director commentary, and more.
Most notably, the new film is written by Alan B. McElroy, who also created the franchise when he wrote the original Wrong Turn (starring Eliza Dushku), as well as 1988’s Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers. He has worked in more recent years on hit TV shows including The Vampire Diaries, Star Trek: Discovery, and Jack Ryan. From the trailer and synopsis, it looks like McElroy has embedded plenty of timely social commentary in this latest Turn.
Directed by Mike P. Nelson (The Domestics), the cast includes Charlotte Vega (Warrior Nun), Matthew Modine (Stranger Things, 47 Meters Down), Damian Maffei (The Strangers: Prey at Night, Haunt), Bill Sage (Hap and Leonard), Emma Dumont (The Gifted), Valerie Jane Parker (Greenleaf), Chaney Morrow (Haunt), Daisy Head (Underworld: Blood Wars, Harlots), and David Hutchinson (American Horror Story).
The reboot of the iconic franchise is executive produced by Martin Moszkowicz (Resident Evil franchise), Bill Bromiley (3 From Hell, We Summon the Darkness), and Jonathan Saba (The Vanished, Hangman).
The official synopsis: Backwoods terror and never-jangling suspense meet when Jen (Charlotte Vega) and a group of friends set out to hike the Appalachian Trail. Despite warnings to stick to the trail, the hikers stray off course—and cross into land inhabited by The Foundation, a hidden community of mountain dwellers who use deadly means to protect their way of life. Suddenly under siege, Jen and her friends seem headed to the point of no return— unless Jen’s father (Matthew Modine) can reach them in time.
The Blu-ray and DVD will both include the following special features:
- Deleted & Extended Scenes
- “Monsters Among Us: Making Wrong Turn” Featurette
- Wrong Turn Promotional Trailer
- Feature-Length Audio Commentary with Director Mike P. Nelson
Wrong Turn will be released on DVD and on Blu-ray (+ Digital) on Feb. 23, from Lionsgate.
