Plot:

Daria and Nick ride their bikes deep in the Hobb Springs Bike Trail. After bathing in a small watering hole, they get it together. Afterwards, they ride their bikes again until Nick falls off and discovers that an unknown assailant has shot him with a bow and arrow. The assailant, Three Finger, then kills Nick with an arrow through the face. Daria attempts to flee only to ride into a strip of barbed-wire planted by One Eye and Saw Tooth. Three Finger then proceeds to kill her via decapitation with a machete.

Danny and his girlfriend Toni, Bryan and his girlfriend Jillian, Vic, Rod, and Charlie go to the Hobb Springs Resort, where they meet caretakers Sally and Jackson, who take them in. Agnes, a vacationer, is soon attacked, possibly by Saw Tooth or One Eye, throwing an axe at her. Jackson then snaps her neck, killing her…

Reviews [click links to read more]:

“The series has always been famed for its inventive gore sequences, and Wrong Turn 6 certainly doesn’t let the side down. There’s enough here to rival even the fourth film’s grotesque fondue scene; which, for the uninitiated, is really saying something. It looks remarkably good too, considering how late we are into the game, and how shoddy and cheap the last film was.” Starburst

“Some of the kills do feel a bit flat, though, involving stabs and arrows, and the makeup on the killers seems to have gotten worse, now resembling cheap, motionless masks.” Horror News

“Milev sticks with the formula of having a knock-out kill as the first but then quickly abandons just about every other bit of the carnage we’re used to in some weird attempt to seemingly make his Wrong Turn darker and more psychological than it needs to be. Don’t get me wrong; I’m all for dark, but this? This is ultimately a failure as he only achieves this in one scene during a woodland gathering.” Dread Central

“Sometimes a series has to switch things up a bit to keep from feeling like it’s been run into the ground, and that’s exactly what Milev and Woodward have done here. Wrong Turn VI: Last Resort is a very strong entry in the series that works in a different way than any of the previous five did. Even if you got tired of the other sequels as they went along, the sixth film is still worth giving a chance…” The Movie Network

“It’s ridiculous, nonsensical stuff, a badly constructed hook on which to hang a series of gory murders. It’s a movie that’s tension-free and treats its audience with a large dollop of contempt … It’s all about the kills, and one surreal murder involving a fire hose aside, Wrong Turn VI offers little that’s new or inventive or even interesting.” The Dull Wood Experiment
