Wrong Turn (2021)
Jen 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.
I like movies that are aware of what they are selling... without [any] greater aspirations than to make people laugh and that's it.
It's the kind of movie you'll want to see a second time with someone who hasn't seen it yet, to remember what it was like to watch it for the first time.
It's a movie as timely as it is provocative and amazingly, for much of its running time, it is weirdly funny.
