In "Wrong Turn," Jen (Vega) 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. Suddenly under siege, Jen and her friends seem headed to the point of no return––unless Jen's father (Modine) can reach them in time. (Gary Reber)

The 2.39:1 1080p AVC picture, reviewed on a Sony Bravia Z9D 4K Ultra HD HDR display, upconverted to 2160p with greater resolution and luminance, was photographed digitally and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. The picture at times appears stylized. Color fidelity is natural with well-balanced hues and nothing exaggerated. Fleshtones are perfectly natural. Contrast is generally good, though, shadow delineation during the night scenes is wanting. Flashes of lightning and torches provide dynamic effect. Black levels are natural. Daylight scenes provide natural lighting. Resolution is generally good, though, occasional softness is exhibited. This is an effective visual presentation that creates viewing tension. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack delivers a virtually constant haunting and suspenseful mood during the scenes on the mountain. The music occupies the soundstage and extends to the surrounds to envelop. Ambient environmental sounds provide the surround activity during the long outdoor sequences. Foley sound effects are realistic. Dialogue is intelligible with generally good spatial integration. Deep bass is delivered in sound effects and in the music. Atmospherics, such as the sound of crackling fire, sound realistic. This is a hauntingly well-rendered and effective soundtrack. (Gary Reber)
