I love the first film in the series so much, it's a great time. And then I am done! Seven Wrong Turns, what a world.

Oh, and When a Stranger Calls Back is actually pretty great, that is all.

When a Stranger Calls back used to terrify me. Him being on the wall in the end, good god......

"Why won't it let us leave?" Maybe don't use that Blair Witch map next time....just throw it in the creek.

I'm a little shocked that only 2 of my 20 have appeared so far (The Bay and Krampus) although I have seen several that I consider to be gems (Attack the Block, Feast, Grabbers, Willow Creek). Pretty great seeing what some people consider horror (Baby Jane? and War of the Worlds would not go in the horror section on my video store!) Glad you did this again Ms. Ponder!

"When a Stranger Calls" and "When a Stranger Calls Back" are so good. Both creepy and a bit tasteless (in a good way).

My sister made a face-in-the-wall artpiece inspired by that movie and she hung it in her bedroom for years.

WOOO first appearance of a movie from my list and it's the awesomeness that is Wrong Turn! Bit surprised it only got one vote, but I love it to much too. I tried watching the first sequel but didn't like it so haven't bothered with any of the others. 7?? Eesh.
