    Which movies are better? I prefer the settings of the Wrong Turn films even though the sequel was more of the same and had a lower budget. THHE flicks had more disturbing moments though. I voted for the Wrong Turn movies.

    Wrong Turn film. The sequel is quite worthless, though obviously still better than the thief's remake of "Hills" was...

    Wrong Turn. The first one is one of my faves and the second one was goofy fun.

    The first remake left me kind of underwhelmed and the second was watchable but nothing special.

    Really it's one really good film out of the four and so Wrong Turn gets the vote based on that.

    Wrong Turn films easily to me - I think the Hills have Eyes remakes sucked about as bad as the TCM remake

    Liked Wrong Turn, but hated its sequel. Didn't much like Hills Have Eyes remake and haven't seen its sequel.

    The Hills Have Eyes remake is by far the best movie in either series, but the -1,000,000,000,007 average The Hills Have Eyes 2 earned gives the best series nod easily to Wrong Turn.

    Just because the original Wrong Turn was so great, I had to vote for them.

    Yet another one I can't really decide on - I'm going middle of the road again.

    Overall, the Hills Have Eyes film is better than Wrong Turn. However, Wrong Turn 2 is better that HHE2.... so it's a wash.

    Wrong Turn 2 ought to be in everyones collection, what a blast that is....

    Wrong Turn flicks for sure, because part 2 was surprisingly okay (which is actually a compliment when we're talking about horror flicks) and the first one was fun.

    I liked some of the elements of the Hills remake, but I thought the second one was garbage.

    Even though I haven't seen the sequel, I'm voting for Wrong Turn. The first film was much better than I expected. Seeing it in the theater with a lively audience and a few squeamish people sitting nearby made for a memorable experience. Based on what some of you are saying, I need to check out Wrong Turn 2.

    The Hills Have Eyes remakes were both terrible. Fortunately I only saw the first in theaters and wasted less money on renting the sequel.

    I loved the first WRONG TURN, even though the 2nd film isn't nearly as good.

    Both HILLS films had okay moments, but overall they didn't work for me.

    The first WRONG TURN is the only one out of all of them that I consider worth owning/rewatching. The rest of them aren't really bad, just kinda disposable.

    I don't understand the massive praise Wrong Turn gets. It's a decent movie but some of the comments I've read before have people gushing over it. It was an okay horror film. The sequel wasn't very good outside of a few death scenes and Henry Rollins PWNING everyone.

    The Hills Have Eyes remake was very effective (to me) and the sequel was an utterly gross and unnecessary, yet sort of enjoyable, experience.

    They're pretty equal to me but I went for THHE films.

    WRONG TURN!

    Those pieces of shit who did The Hills Have Eyes had no right to remake a great movie.
