If you're not familiar with up and coming filmmaker Joe Lynch, you really should be. Lynch broke on to the scene back in 2007 when he directed a direct-to-video Wrong Turn sequel for Fox. His effort, entitled Wrong Turn 2: Dead End, featured Henry Rollins, a wilderness survival reality show plot and enough blood to satisfy most any gore-hound. It was also a pretty good film, much better than you might have expected for a sequel for which almost no one was asking. It played Fantastic Fest 3 here in Austin before it's DVD release, and you'll notice that Lynch is sporting a Fest shirt in the picture to your right. If you haven't seen it, it's definitely worth giving it a shot. It's a fun ride with plenty of cool kills to keep the pace chugging right along.

You might have actually seen Lynch and not known it. Through his friendship with director Adam Green, he's appeared in both the Halloween short The Tiffany Problem as well as Green's atmospheric horror film, Frozen. In addition, he works at G4 and does a horror-based segment for them called Body Count. You can also find him on Twitter where he engages with friends and fans alike.
