Wrong Turn VI: Last Resort is a story of unrelenting terror. It starts when an emotionally young man, Danny (Ilott), inherits an isolated backwoods hotel that may hold the key to his secret past. A trip to the peaceful resort quickly transforms into a blood-soaked killing spree as Danny's friends are brutally murdered one by one. Danny discovers that Three Finger (Radoslav Parvanov) and his flesh-eating kin are to blame, but the chilling surprises they have in store for him have only just begun. Danny ultimately learns that he has an unthinkable connection to the clan of hillbilly cannibals. But now that he knows the shocking truth, he will face an even more horrifying choice.

Special features include three featurettes: Inheritance (HD 01:36), All The Kills In Them Hills (HD 06:55), and Hobb Springs: A Place To Rest In Peace (HD 07:57); upfront previews; and an UltraViolet digital copy.

The 1.78:1 1080p AVC picture was digitally photographed. While pristine throughout, the imagery quality is low budget but decent. The color palette is naturally hued with warm hues and natural fleshtones. Contrast is decent, with deep blacks and revealing shadows. Resolution reveals fine detail in the imagery. Overall, this is a fine digital presentation throughout.

The DTS-HD Master Audioô 5.-1-channel soundtrack is supported with an active atmospheric orchestral score that is well recorded with a wide and deep soundstage that extends to the surrounds. The horrific sequences are enhanced with punctuated deep bass effects enhanced with .1 LFE energy. Atmospherics and sound effects effectively create tension and eeriness. Dialogue sounds natural but at times wanting in spatial integration. Overall, this is a well-presented soundtrack that heightens the horror.
