Welcome back to day fourteen of my countdown to Halloween series, where I share all of my favourite Halloween films. Today's film is...

Let's talk about the film that made me completely terrified of all forests for life...
The film follows Chris Finn (Desmond Harrington) as he's driving through West Virginia on his way to an important job interview. Unfortunately, there's been a chemical spill on the road, so he has to take an abandoned dirt road instead to ensure that he'll arrive on time. This then results in him getting into a car accident with a group of friends: Jessie (Eliza Dushku), Carly (Emmanuelle Chriqui), Scott (Jeremy Sisto), Evan (Kevin Zegers) and Francine (Lindy Booth). Both of their cars are now not working, so they venture into the woods to find some help, only to find a creepy little cabin that is the home of a trio of cannibalistic men who are horrifically disfigured from years of inbreeding. Will they manage to get out alive?

Heavily influenced by the likes of 'The Hills Have Eyes', Wrong Turn (2003) doesn't show us anything new or particular groundbreaking and is full of the usual horror cliches. However, it's a fast-paced slasher film that is actually really enjoyable to watch (if you can stomach all the gore).

Some films you watch and you think I wonder if there will be a second? Others just don't need it and so the thought doesn't even enter your head...This film is one of the latter. However, there ended up being six films overall...WHY??? They become worse and worse as they go on and less believable, with minimal plot and incredible amounts of gore. 

But overall, this is a film that I've always enjoyed and I try and make everyone I know watch it, much to their dismay. If you're looking for a fun, slasher to watch this Halloween, add this to your list!
