Maynard Odets (Old Man/Timer) is a reoccuring character in the Wrong Turn series. He is revealed and considers himself to be guardian of the mutants. He is the father of the main three, One-Eye, Saw-Tooth, and Three-Finger, as well as Ma and Pa. He appeared in the the First Two Films, Wrong Turn and Wrong Turn 2: Dead End and later returned in the Prequel and Fifth Film, Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines. He is one of the four main antagonists of the fifth film and is the true antagonist.


Not much is known from his past other than growing up in/around West Virginia, most likely Greenbrier County. He worked at the Hope Creek Pulp and Paper Mill for years and in the 70s it was shut down. He and his wife, Deliliah decided to stay in the area although the Toxic Chemicals killed off the wildlife and affected the enviornment. He and his wife were both exposed to the chemicals, and she would later give birth to Five children, Three Finger, Saw Tooth, One Eye, Ma, and Pa, and decided to become cannibals. They were born deformed due to the chemicals and Maynord and Deliliah both could have already been Inbred, from a continueing family heritage but its not confirmed. Deliliah died sometime before 2003, it is unknown how. Maynard would continue staying in the area for years and in 1974, Three Finger, Saw Tooth, and One Eye were captured and placed in the Glensvile Sanatorium, Ma and Pa could have also, along with other Non Family Indreds. He was seperated from them for some time but its unknown how and could have possibly believed they were dead or he chose to stay away from them. Doctors from the Sanatorium say the Three boys ate their parents but they were highly believed just to be victims. Its presumbed he reunited with his Three Sons around 2003 and moved in with them. He planned to leave West Virginia over the years but after reuniting with his Sons, he chose to stay. He was shown to be very hostile and angry toward his sons, possibly due to them being captured and being very distant from them for so long. With the ability to boss the mutants around, he is the brains and face behind attempts to kill trick and kill innocent people. He was captured on Halloween 2003 but escaped, and shortly after that it is presumed heavy tension occured with his Sons and they moved into their own cabin, due to him being very afraid when he saw their truck approaching his Gas Station but he still stayed involved with the Family. He took on the role of misleading victims into the Family's direction to get killed. 2 Years later, he now patched things up with his Family, possibly due to Saw Tooth and One Eye being killed. He had his own Cabin in the woods and was still taking on the role of misleading victims, until his death in 2005.

Maynard (Old Man/Timer) captured, in Jail in Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines

Shortly after, conflict occured with his Sons and he now stayed away from them, frightened. He now took on the role of leading victims toward his Family at his Gas Station. Most likely due to him getting older and the Mutants taking a stand, becoming dominant over Maynard.


  • He along with his wife were not deformed like their children.
  • He is portrayed by Two different actors. In the First and Second Film his is played by Wayne Robson, and the Fifth Film by Doug Bradley, at a slightly younger appearence.
  • He is the true Father of Three Finger, Saw Tooth, One Eye, Ma, and Pa and the Grandfather of Brother, Sister, and Three Toes.
  • Although he appears much younger/different in Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines, the events of the First Film would have to take place 1-4 weeks after the Fifth Film Due to Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines taking place during Halloween 2003 and the First Film also taking place in 2003 at an unspecified time.
  • Wayne Robson died in 2011, which is most likely why he didnt reprise his Role in the Fifth Film, Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines.
  • The Second Prequel and Fifth Film, centers around some of the Origins of his Charcater.
  • Although some of the dialouge in Both Prequels, Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings and Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines, reveal that he may only be a Friend or some one who inherited/took the Mutants under his wing, it was confirmed by the Makers of Wrong Turn 2: Dead End that he is infact part of the Family and Father of the Original Muatnts, and has been dubbed 'Patient Zero' along with his Wife.              
  • In Wrong turn 4: Bloody Beginnings the Doctors of Glensvile Sanatorium said Mrs Hiliker found the Mutants eating the remains of who they believed to be their Parents. But they were most likely Victims of the Famly.
  • In Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines, Maynard says "he wish he never came upon them and would be long gone if he didnt," but he most likely means if he didnt reunite with them he would be gone. He probably believed they were dead all those years until reuniting with them, and has now developed a hostile relationship with them.  
  • His name is never revealed in the First Two Films, and is nicknamed OldMan/Timer.
