If you take a wrong turn in the road, it could mean the difference between life and death. The three insane cannibals from the Wrong Turn series are among the most vicious and well-known slasher characters in Hollywood. These three cannibalistic brothers kill any unfortunate tourist who gets in their way by slicing and dicing them to satisfy their insatiable appetite. Here are a few other slasher films we think you’ll enjoy if you liked Wrong Turn. Some of these films, such as Wrong Turn, are also available on Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime.
1. Blood Feast (1963)
Herschell Gordon Lewis, aka the Godfather of Gore, made the first splatter film in 1963, years before films like Wrong Turn came out. The way ‘Blood Feast’ depicted gore was revolutionary, and it’s now regarded as one of the most significant works of cinematic history.
The movie had a cult following because a certain segment of the audience was willing to put up with the gore and violence, which helped launch the horror genre in the 1970s and 1980s.
Despite the fact that it’s unwatchable due to its illogical plot and mediocre acting, producer David Friedman claims that they never attempted to make the film seem serious. A normal person would have to survive for two days on an oat-only diet from the blood and shabby pieces of flesh, however.
2. The Human Centipede (2009)
Trilogy is a misnomer when describing this set of books. Although it may sound gruesome and depressing, the next two films are directly inspired by the first. As a surgeon well-known for his work on conjoint twins, Dr. Heiter dreams of creating a human centipede by sewing together three different people and connecting their mouths to anus.
To achieve his goal, he kidnaps a female tourist and a male tourist. Despite the fact that the thought of it makes him sick to his stomach, he intends to keep the “triplet” as a pet. Dr. Heiter’s vile and bilious thoughts, combined with his cruel intentions, are abhorrent. Unless turning pale from vomiting and nausea is the only impetus, it is best to avoid watching this.
3. Cannibal Holocaust (1980)
Cannibal Holocaust is the name given to this film. In some countries, this film is still prohibited and only available in a heavily trimmed version, which probably says a lot about the “video nasty” that it is. Cannibal Holocaust brought torture porn to adolescence, if Blood Feast started the genre. Many die-hard fans were horrified by the transformation from crude splatter to something so realistic and revolting. On top of revolutionizing torture porn, this film follows a documentary crew who went to film cannibal tribes in the Amazon rainforests, and they go missing.
After rumors that the actors were sexually assaulted and killed during the filming process, director Rogero Deodato was cleared of manslaughter charges, but he was condemned for depicting real violence towards animals, which is so horrifying that it will make you puke in your popcorn.
4. Oldboy (2003)
Oldboy is a compelling story about a revenge-stricken man who has been imprisoned for the past fifteen years by unknown people that is on the “must-see” list of every Korean film enthusiast. Since losing his family, Dae-Su has embraced loneliness. He has five days to figure out the source of his misery, or he will lose far more. One of the most diverse films ever made, “Oldboy” includes everything from incestuous sex to scenes like eating live squid and suicide to torture to hypnotism and self-inflicted injuries. As a work of genre cinema, ‘Oldboy’ is legendary. Also, no, that was not a pun.
5. See No Evil (2006)
With the Big Red Machine as the star See No Evil, starring Kane as serial killer Jacob Goodnight, is a religious thriller. Jacob is back, determined to exact vengeance on the cop who shot and killed him four years ago. The psychotic man does what he does best when confronted with a gang of criminals, one of whom has disrespectful religious symbols tattooed on her body. The scum of society will either kill the monster, or Jacob will rip them off one by one.
6. House of Wax (2005)
Elisha Cuthbert appeared in the film ‘The Girl Next Door,’ which you may remember. It’s time for her to star in a slasher movie with Paris Hilton and don even more revealing clothing than before. It’s already sounding intriguing. Six friends are on their way to a football game when they get a ride from a stranger and wind up in Ambrose. While the city may be deserted and home to just two people, the massive House of Wax wax museum appears to be the city’s claim to fame. The group must understand that the wax statues’ resemblance to real objects could be a result of their authenticity. The moral of the story is to avoid getting a ride from a stranger at all costs.
7. Turistas (2006)
They’ve come to see Brazil’s beautiful beaches and exotic women. Rather, what they get is an illegal back alley operation and a few dead bodies. Organ smugglers operating out of Brazil seize unsuspecting tourists and harvest their organs, killing them horribly in a seedy location. Who will make it out of this vacation alive: Alex, Bea (Olivia Wilde), and the rest of their gang?
8. Eden Lake (2008)
Never mind the fact that he’s one of the most talented actors working today. So, here’s your opportunity. Steve and Jenny are planning a romantic getaway to Eden Lake, and they can’t wait to spend as much time as possible in each other’s arms. A local gang of spoiled and feisty teenagers starts playing pranks on these lovers after only a few hours of peace. With barb wire and baseball bats as torture implements, things spiral out of control when Steve is captured. Now Jenny has to find a way to keep Steve safe while also avoiding the lusty and bloodthirsty teenagers.
9. The Hills Run Red (2009)
You shouldn’t be on the lookout for trouble because you might run into it. Tad Hilgenbrink plays Tyler, a budding filmmaker who dreams of making his name heard down the centuries. Serena (Janet Montgomery), his college sweetheart, is torn between her boyfriend and the friend of his who genuinely cares about her. Without realizing what’s going on around him, Tyler is obsessed with the movie ‘The Hills Run Red,’ which features the villain Babyface, who uses the knife he used to carve his face to murder everyone in the film. Tyler is determined to track down the real actor who played Babyface, so he approaches Alexa (Sophie Monk), the director’s daughter, and begs her to accompany him to the location where the film was shot. The truth is, Tyler and Serena have no idea that Babyface is real and the movie they’re watching isn’t a fabrication. More than that, Alexa isn’t taking them anywhere artistically – she’s leading them to their demise. The masked assassin kills everyone except for Serena, who will be used to ‘breed’ more Babyfaces. This is a horror story filled with spine-tingling gore and disturbing images.
10. Wolf Creek (2005)
Before I go any further, I believe it’s important for me to address this. Can people in Hollywood please stop accepting lifts and invitations from complete strangers? Who knows? They could turn out to be the next serial killer. After meeting a stranger in the Wolf Creek Crater, three Australian backpackers decide to accept the stranger’s invitation to his home. They have no idea that man is a terrifying serial killer who takes great pleasure in butchering people. Will the three idiots make it or will they become the wolf’s next meal?
11. 30 Days of Night (2007)
Every year, as the sun sinks below the horizon, Barrow, Alaska experiences a month-long night. However, the residents of this small town are in for a treat this year. Despite numerous warnings, the residents of the town ignored a pack of vampires waiting for the eternal night to feed on the warm flesh of the unwary. In this case, the sheriff and his wife must work together to keep the vampires at bay before the shadows consume the entire town.
12. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)
Want to whet your appetite for cannibalism but don’t want to watch Wrong Turn again and again? It’s all in your hands now. The locals help five young people who witness a hitchhiker shoot herself to death in Texas. To their horror, they find themselves at the same door the unfortunate victim had fled from. In order to avoid a horrific and violent death, the five friends are being pursued by Leatherface and his cannibal family, who are armed with chainsaws and eating people. Start tearing now.
13. Friday the 13th (2009)
A gang of juvenile offenders is having a good time on their lake house near Camp Crystal Lake. Without their knowledge, a homicidal monster named Jason Voorhees is prowling the grounds of the compound in search of new victims to slaughter. One by one, the campers vanish, forcing Clay, a man searching for his sister’s whereabouts, to join them in their efforts to elude the hockey mask killer. Don’t venture into the shadows at night because Jason will be there.
14. Hostel (2005)
‘Hostel,’ which is not for the faint of heart or guts, features severed body parts in nearly every frame. Hostel, a film about a deranged game of torture and horribly filmed gore, will startle you at times and turn your guts upside down at others. Hostel I/II fulfill their promises of desperation and delectation quite well, and the performances are fantastic. Hostel is a masterpiece of the slasher genre and a close relative of the Wrong Turn series (minus the incest). The Czech Republic is the setting for this story about tourists who travel to Eastern Europe in search of fun, frolic, and sex, only to be kidnapped and trafficked by a criminal gang. To the highest bidders who have fantasies of murdering, maiming, and setting ablaze people for their own amusement, they sell the nave tourists. This horror-filled hostel will be home to a select few.
15. Final Destination (2000)
No matter how hard you try, you can’t escape your demise. When Alex sees himself and several other passengers on his flight dying, he warns his companions and gets off. What the lucky ones don’t realize is that Death never leaves his work half-done. Everyone dies one by one, just as he had planned all along. Is this our only option for a future? Die.
16. Saw (2004)
This is going to make your head spin. This slasher/suspense film is legendary for its unexpected turns at every turn. Two people have been imprisoned against their will for no apparent reason. To stay alive, they’ll have to engage in a sinister game where only one person who’s willing to commit murder will be able to win. As you watch, the Jigsaw Killer defies all of your expectations and predictions.
