Years before Desmond Harrington was the dirty cop, out to get Dexter Morgan in the popular Showtime drama Dexter, he starred in a decent little cannibalistic inbred horror film called Wrong Turn.  That very film now has its day on Blu-Ray, but is the quality of this release praiseworthy? Or will viewers be less than hasty to discard their previous DVD release?

Chris Flynn (Desmond Harrington) is eagerly on his way to a job interview and is forced to take a detour when he's caught in traffic.  He takes a side road in the hopes of making his appointment, but his plans take a plunge when he crashes into a car parked along that road.  He meets the accident victims -- a group of less-than-affable friends -- and they decide to hoof it along the road in order to find some sort of help out of this mess.  What they find is themselves pursued by a family of deformed cannibal freaks with plans of having the group for dinner.

There's a bunch of killing going on at the malformed hands of the inbred cannibals and the film's main focus is on Desmond Harrington's and Eliza Dushku's characters getting out of the woods in one piece.  Dushku, the easy to look at actress plays Jessie Burlingame, one of the people Chris unsuspectingly crashes into.  While one doesn't look to a cannibal-killers-in-the-woods flick for Oscar-caliber performances, Dushku epitomizes the mono-emotive actress.  Take a gander at the cover of either the DVD or the Blu-Ray for an ideal example of her one-dimensional expression.  You gotta give her credit for one thing -- she doesn't stray from that performance.  The entire film she stares blankly off into space with her mouth open and doesn't miss a beat!

Wrong Turn was the film that began its direct-to-video franchise.  It's an entertaining horror film from the 2000s and for the most part does not disappoint.  This won't be on any top ten lists, but it does deliver some of the goods -- most significantly being the delightfully deformed cannibal creature practical makeup FX.  There are also some tension filled situations that you can't help but put yourself into -- including one where a trio are forced to jump from a  blazing watchtower onto the protruding limbs of trees below.  All that aside, there's even a Pepto-Bismal swilling toothless old gas station attendant thrown in for good measure!

20th Century Fox makes a Wrong Turn with their Blu-Ray release.  The film is presented 1.85:1 16X9 1080p AVC @ 25 MBPS and looks dreadful.  There are sequences in the film that appear decently, but for the most part it's bland and filled with terrible quality grainy visuals during dark sequences, that distract completely from the viewing experience.  The video quality is so distracting and poor that I had to turn off the Blu-Ray and pop in my DVD of Wrong Turn to finish the film.  You know you have a problem on your hands when the DVD appears significantly better in a lower definition than a video medium that is supposedly superior.  The audio is English 5.1, DTS-HD Master Audio and is much better than the video presentation.  The supplemental features contained on this release are a direct port from the DVD.  While they are great inclusions, they don't give you much reason to double dip, especially with this "high definition" transfer. The commentary is conducted with Director Rob Schmidt, stars Desmond Harrington and Eliza Dushku.  There are three Deleted Scenes as well as four featurettes.  The first is 'Fresh Meat: The Wounds of Wrong Turn', running 9-minutes in length and features producer Stan Winston and director Rob Schmidt discussing the film and the process of creating the cannibals and other effects.  Next up is 'The Making of Wrong Turn' which is short and to the point at 4-minutes.  'Eliza Dushku: Babe In The Woods' focuses on boasting about her abilities as an actress for 4-minutes but really gives her more credit than she merits. A 5-minute featurette on Stan Winston talks about his career and his involvement with producing Wrong Turn.  A trailer is also included on this release.
