wrong turn trailer

It’s time to head back to the woods with Wrong Turn, a remake/reboot/sequel/whatever you want to call it, based on the 2003 film of that same name. That film launched a whole franchise, but this new film is just called Wrong Turn again, and it definitely looks a little different. It also looks…surprisingly good? Once again, it involves a group of young folks who head into the Appalachian woods only to confront a horde of killers. The villains in the original were inbred mutant cannibals, while in the new Wrong Turn, it’s a group known as The Foundation, which appears to be some sort of survivalist militia. Watch the Wrong Turn trailer below.

Despite the strangeness of Gren’s origins, the character would become informally recognized as an LGBTQ icon in anime. And the Netflix live-action series is taking it one step further: officially making the live-action Gren a nonbinary character.
