Could someone identify the language spoken by the members of the sect (or remote village in the woods...) during the trial in Wrong Turn (2021)?
It’s Faroese, a dialect of Danish which is found on the Faroe Islands.
According to fandomize.com:
And in playing the big bad of the film, Bill faced a few challenges when taking on this role. One challenge was the Foundation’s language and the other involved knives.
“The language and dialect came from the Faroe Islands. That dialect came pretty easy but the language is, I mean, I’m actually saying particular words. I’m sure to someone from the Faroe Islands, it makes no sense at all. I love the dialect.”
Now toward the end of the film, Bill has an awesome scene with some knives that was all done in one take.
“It’s a little dance that John does around the table and kills people. And the flip of the knife, it’s harder than flipping a knife because it’s you’re just flipping the handle. Because obviously, we’re not using a knife.”
I was also intrigued by the language the villagers spoke. At first I thought I heard German words, then it sounded more like a Scandinavian language. Sometimes the names of the characters give away information, so I looked through the credits and found a "Jonhard Mikkelsen" listed as "translator", I googled the name and found an author by that name who wrote a book on the language of the Faroe Islands, which belong to Denmark; it's a language apparently only spoken by several tens of thousand people. Obviously I'm just guessing here, but it sounds like a suitable choice.
