Wrong Turn reboot: New poster features the killer called Deer Skull

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

It's been over a year since we first heard that the killers in the Wrong Turn franchise reboot – set to reach theatres via a Fathom Event on January 26th – would be characters called Deer Skull, Ram Skull, Wild Boar Skull, and Wolf Skull. The recently released trailer for the new Wrong Turn (check it out above) let us see a glimpse of those Skulls in action, and a poster (click HERE to see it) featured Deer Skull, apparently played by Damian Maffei of The Strangers: Prey at Night.

Now the poster for Wrong Turn's German release has appeared online, and this one also features the menacing Deer Skull. The German poster can be seen below.

Directed by Mike P. Nelson from a script by Alan B. McElroy, who also wrote the original Wrong Turn (watch it HERE), the reboot stars Charlotte Vega as Jes, one of 

six friends from New York taking a hiking trip to the beautiful West Virginia Mountains who unwittingly fall prey to a savage sect known as The Foundation, a community of people who have lived in the mountains since before the Civil War.

Matthew Modine, Bill Sage, Emma Dumont, Valerie Jane Parker, Chaney Morrow, David Hutchison, Dylan McTee, Adrian Favela, Adain Bradley, Jeremy Ambler, Cory Scott Allen, Gary Ray Stearns, Rhyan Elizabeth Hanavan, Vardaan Arora, Mark Mench, Joshua Stephen Campbell, Jennie Malone, Brian James Fitzpatrick, and Mark Angel are also in the cast.

I'm a fan of some Wrong Turn movies and not so fond of others. This is a franchise that feels like it never reached its full potential. I'm going to miss the inbred cannibal slashers of the previous films, but I'm willing to give The Foundation a chance.
