WRONG TURN 6 - LAST RESORT PREMIERE - PHOTOS & VIDEO!

Share

A sudden and mysterious inheritance brings Danny and his friends to Hobb Springs, a forgotten resort deep in the West Virginia hills. Hobb Springs is being looked after under the watchful care of Jackson and Sally, a socially and awkward couple who introduce Danny to the long lost family he's never known. Soon, Danny is forced to choose between his friends and his bloodline.

This movie is very under rated, I thought the story was pretty good as well as the acting. Some of the kills were extremely brutal for it being the 6th instalment, it's always hard to find new ways to kill, but they figured it out. Deff not the best one, if your looking to see any of them I would recommend the 4th one. But all in all this was not a bad entry to the series.
