Horror sequel in which a group of college kids are attacked by the mutant cannibal hillbilly Three Finger (Borislav Iliev) while on a rafting trip at the Bluefish River. The murderous violence escalates when a busload of dangerous criminals being transported from the nearby penitentiary - along with their escort, Sheriff Carver (Bill Moody ) - also fall prey to the sick antics of the cannibal psychopath.
Well, it doesn't waste any time: the opening sequence of Wrong Turn 3: Left for Dead gets cracking with an eyeball-popping sequence of gory horror that signals the carnage-fest to come. (And the term eyeball-popping is meant to be taken quite literally here.) This sequel in the crazed-inbred-hillbilly franchise places a group of hardened prisoners, and a few guards, in the midst of foresty mayhem, along with the lone survivor of the opening attack on river-rafting teens (Janet Montgomery). So after the first few minutes the entire film takes place at night in a thick forest, which leads to visual monotony despite the periodic attacks from insane rednecks and skin-lacerating booby traps. (In fact, the most heroic character deliberately leads the cons in circles in the forest--not the most exciting narrative device.) The dialogue is clunky and some of the peripheral acting is Z-movie level, but give the movie credit for including a couple of authentic badasses: Tamer Hassan (from Layer Cake and Eastern Promises) as a furious gangster, and hulking Gil Kolirin. The indestructibility of the villains makes any chance of credibility impossible (who knew inbreeding would result in such superpowers?), so the only choice is to sit back and witness the various ingenious ways of killing. Which are many. The coda will probably have viewers outraged, but by then you know what kind of movie you're watching.--Robert Horton, Amazon.com

While rafting in the Bluefish River area, four college kids are attacked by the mutant cannibal hillbilly Three Finger.
Only the teenager Alex succeeds in escaping running through the woods. Meanwhile, a group of dangerous criminals are transported from the West Virginia Grafton Penitentiary in a custody bus escorted by three security guards through the backwoods.
When they park in a rest stop in a police station, Sheriff Carver is informed about the missing teenagers. The bus driver heads to their destination with the guards and the prisoners but a tow truck driven by Three Finger hits the bus that falls off the road.
They are attacked by Three Finger and the perilous Carlo Chavez dominates the guards and the other prisoners....
Wrong turn was a fun horror movie, with some surprisingly scary moments, The second one was good, but when you viewed it a second time, you realised it wasn't that good.
Now we have this, just another excuse to make a buck, because the gore-hounds will lap it up. At leas the second one had some effort put into it and some good script writing. This just has stereotypical characters, who are just begging to get killed, due to little remarks they make throughout the film.
You can tell from the start that who will get killed, so you can have a little fun in guessing how they will die and in which order.
There are a couple of surprises though, but not amazing ones. I was surprised that the writers didn't turn Chavez into a good guy in the end, i was gob-smacked at that one, and also, the ending isn't the same garbage you expect from films like this, it's actually quite morbid.
The effects are not very good, and the editing and lighting is below par, but it's not the travesty people are saying it is, it does it's job, and then goes away.
Wrong Turn 3 is by no means a bad film, but compared to the greatness of the first two, it suffers. Perhaps the movie should have just focused on the four teens who, unfortunately, stumble into the twisted world of Three Finger (the mutant guy). By switching the focus onto the story of a group of escaped convicts, it's difficult to decide whether you should be supporting the criminals or the mutants. You would think that you would be hoping the convicts survive, but it's so hard to sympathise with any of them, that you find yourself wanting them to get killed. The way the convicts behave towards the escorting police officers and the previous survivor of Three Finger's initial attack, you feel as though their deaths would be quite welcome, and gruesomely at that. Another reason that the movie itself suffers is because that the only real mutant killer is Three Finger. The adolescent (then baby, now about eight I'd say) of the second film makes a brief appearance, but due to a quick (and actually quite sad) death scene, Three Finger is the only cannibal hunting the cast this time. The satisfying aspect of the prequels was that you knew the human survivors would extract revenge on at least a few of the other cannibals, but it quickly becomes apparent that Three Finger isn't going to die at least until the end of the film. And when he does die, at least for the first time, you're left thinking, "Why didn't they just shoot him in the head just to make sure that he's actually dead?" Also, the ending is surprisingly disappointing in that no one, apart from one of the cast members, survives, which left me, at the very least, feeling slightly unsatisfied.
Wrong Turn 3 is not a bad movie, and I would recommend it to fans of the franchise, but it disappoints by being not as good as the first two.
I saw this film by sheer accident and have now realised that I will never be able to reclaim back those 1-1/2 hours which I have lost wasted on this abomination of a film. This review is to serve as a public warning to avoid this at all costs, it is really that bad.
Some may think that this film deserves cult status....believe me it does not warrant such an accolade
Nothing about this film, in any capacity, makes it worthy of the film reels wasted on producing this. I wouldn't classify this as a film that goes straight to DVD but rather a film that should go straight into the bin.
I highly doubt all those who were involved in producing/creating/directing this film had any formal communication with one another, it seems that they either ran out of budget/ideas or both.
The mind boggles as we're introduced to a bunch of very hard criminals who have committed very heinous crimes. The typical follows, they are being transported on a bus, the bus crashes and they escape (along with the token law enforcement) and then use their sheer lack of killer survival instincts to fend off an attack by a couple of mutant buffoons. For some completely pointless reason a damsel in distress is thrown into the mix and there we have a recipe of disastrous consequence.
At some stage during watching this film, there may be an urge to laugh at the audacity of the film, but it is quickly negated through bad acting, appalling make up, ropey dialogue, complete lack of logic and the sense of urgency to do something else other than watching this tripe.
I consider myself fortunate that I did not watch the entire film.
My conclusion, if you're going to buy this DVD, use it as a tea coaster, it provides a greater level of functionality, rather than subjecting your DVD player through the torture of having to play this nonsense.
