Wrong Turn 2's number one fan also happens to be the film's director, Joe Lynch. He seemingly wants everyone to know that he's just like you. In fact, he's fancies himself as quite the horror fan. In an interview with Bloody Good Horror, Lynch discussed what people have called his "grassroots campaign" to bring a Wrong Turn sequel to the masses.

Not only is he taking Wrong Turn 2 to New Hampshire, but he's going to South Carolina and Oklahoma and Arizona and North Dakota and New Mexico. He's going to Texas and New York and South Dakota and Oregon and Washington and Michigan and then he's going to go to California to take back Hollywood.

"Everyone knew about "Wrong Turn" from video, or FX later on, but mostly it was video. It was me and 6 other people who saw "Wrong Turn" in theaters back when it came out in May of 2003. Because everyone was sucking the Pixar dick with "Finding Nemo" (laughs)."

The bottom line is that Wrong Turn 2 has become a legitimate success and rightfully so. Lynch did a solid job with Wrong Turn 2. While it might not be the most original film and it is far from perfect, Wrong Turn 2 was an incredibly entertaining film and definitely set the bar higher for the direct-to-video market. So what if Henry Rollins did most of the work? Wrong Turn 2 managed to out-perform many direct-to-video releases and now there is talk of a third installment.

We're talking about it now, and obviously the writer's strike is holding it up. I told them that I feel very close to the "family" now. I really do, and it's nice to hear that a lot of people liked where I took the second movie and thought that maybe I would do good with a third one. Part of me thinks that Rob had his version of the first film which was kind of this 70's homage, and mine was the 80's homage, and I'm thinking that it would be great to see "Wrong Turn 3" be almost like a 90's homage. But to be honest the only thing I can think of in the horror lineage looking back that occurred in the 90's was the "Scream" era, and the last thing we need is someone saying "I'll be right back!" We definitely don't need that, so there's a couple ideas that they're kicking around now.

"There's one idea in particular that I FUCKING LOVE that would answer all the questions that people have had in the past as to why people who survived the previous films didn't say anything, and where are the cops in all of this. So it answers a lot of questions, it opens up the mythology a little more too which I really like. No trilogy should be out there without enriching the backstory. Even if it might piss of some fans, you need that, or you're just slapping a "2" on it and making a carbon copy. So this one idea that's out there that I really like, I've honestly said, if they pick that idea then I'll do it. If you don't see my name attached to the third film, then that means they didn't pick that script."

I can't imagine anything worse that Wrong Turn falling into the wrong hands because the last thing rabid Wrong Turn fans need is for the series to take a turn for the worse.
