Top 15 Movies Like Wrong Turn

Horror in the early 2000s could easily be summed up with the phrase "torture porn".

As horror fans know, the genre goes through trends and cycles. While this super-gory and often uncomfortable to watch genre have faded into the genre catalog, some traits still remain. At the height of the torture porn of the 2000s, the 2003 breakout indie hit Wrong Turn set the stage for many similar movies such as the ones below...

15. The Hills Have Eyes (2006)

Acclaimed controversial horror director Alexandre Aja brought this gory and polarizing remake to the big screen. The classic tale of desert-dwelling cannibal mutants scarred a new generation of moviegoers with over-the-top gore.
