I also dug peace and love Scott (played by the always money Jeremy Sisto) who had all the funniest lines as well. Her character was thinner than ice, but her magnetism and her hot looks kept my eyes glued. Linda Booth (Francine) didnt have much to do here, but look yummy and did an awesome job at it. Can you fail with Emmanuelle Chriqui displaying cleavage and that scrumptious belly button proudly? The ladies get Desmond Harringtons flawless tan and Jeremy Sistos wild hair.Eliza Dusku (playing Jesse) surprisingly didnt have much to toy with in terms of characterization, as her white tank top and tight Jeans had more depth than her character. Emmanuelle Chriqui (Carly) showed off a solid delivery and one cute belly button. Schmidt did a bang-on job here, keeping it simple to maximize the impact of the film, while at times displaying the occasional stylish shot.An indescribable nightmare begins when a group of young friends is stranded on an isolated road deep in the Appalachian hills of West Virginia, with no hope of rescue.
Already, the DVD looks to be more fun than the movie.
Fox's release of Wrong Turn on DVD now will presumably generate interest in Dushku's new tv series, Tru Calling (premiering 30 October on, you guessed it, Fox).
Featuring a hip ensemble of up-and-coming young stars, this blood-curdling epic is a shock-a-minute horror rush that will leave you screaming for more!
Late for a meeting and stuck in traffic, medical student and professional brooder Chris (Harrington) takes a back woods road as a short cut and accidentally crashes into another car belonging to two couples and a tough chickadee (Dushku).
But then, it sucked even further for Desmond because his character is shot in his **left** leg which forced the actor to limp on his **right** leg, which was not his good leg because he broke his ankle. You can hear her shoulder pop on the production track in the theatrical sound mix - if you're into that.4.
Eliza Dushku (Jessie Burlingame) got really into a scene and actually (read: accidentally) set Julian Richings (Three Finger) on fire!Having said that, I had a riot playing the guessing game, being right all the time and watching the kids consequently checking out in messy ways. Of the lot, my fav player was Chris (Harrington) who had my vote for the hippest cat in this gory litter. How do I love my plasma..me count the ways: dismembered bodies, arrows in the back, an arrow in the head (you bet!The man was a take charge, kool as ice, brave mofo and I was rooting for him like a cheerleader on speed. Desmond Harrington (Chris) underplayed it and his characters strength really appealed to me. Eliza Dushku (Jesse) couldve been playing a sheep and I still wouldve loved her. ), barbed wire choking, a priceless decapitation and more! Sadly, we didnt get any blatant female nudity but hey man, can you go wrong with Linda Booth teasing us with her oranges and looking damn fine?Horror clichs and a cheesy vibe are not always negative for me, theyre part of the genre that I love and in some sittings...theyre part of the fun. Overall, "Wrong Turn" was a balls-to-the-wall horror ride that didnt shy away from the goodies. They are horror movies that I like to watch for high IQ and subtlety and there are movies like "Wrong Turn" that are not necessarily the sharpest tools in the shed, but that kick serious ass by awakening fear, shock, tension, cheap laughs and outspoken fuck yeahs in yours truly.What I got dealt here was a gripping, unapologetic genre film that occasionally wound up being really fun when it was bad-- in other words, it was hard for this one to fail in my eyes since I got so many different levels of enjoyment out of it. Sure, for anybody thats seen "TCM" and "Deliverance", you wont find much thats original in terms of content here, but this film took those known conventions and executed them with skill while slapping in a strong dose of sadism and tasty horror cheese. While running during one of the scenes, Desmond Harrington (Chris Flynn) broke his right ankle after landing on the opposite side of a log, which totally sucks. Emmanuelle Chriqui, who plays Carly, dislocated her shoulder while performing her fall stunt through the trees.
