Reviews

Thriller set in Australia about a dream vacation which turns into a nightmare. Ben (Nathan Phillips), Lizzie (Cassandra Magrath), and Kristy (Kestie Morassi) are three friends who, after a night of celebratory drinking, hit the road for a trip to Wolf Creek National Park, where they plan to spend a week hiking and surfing. The three friends are happy to be spending time together, especially after Ben makes the happy discovery that Lizzie is as infatuated with him as he is with her. However, after a long day on foot, Ben, Lizzie, and Kristy make the unpleasant discovery that their car's battery is dead, leaving them stuck in the middle of nowhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my horror favourites 25 April 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is one of my favourite horror movies of all time.
And the late Roger Ebert gave it 0%. Not because it was a bad movie, he said, but due to its immorality and irresponsibility.
Mr Ebert, God bless him, has done many accurate and well-written reviews and some I did not agree with at all. This was one of the two reasons I can cite why I thought he could be a total ass sometimes.
The first was his infamous videogame qoute which states that no videogame can ever be art. As any gamer knows, there are already numerous masterpieces which can be called art. (Heavy Rain, Mass Effect etc.)
His Woif Creek review is the second.
Wolf Creek is a hard-hitting, no compromise, no punches-pulled gutpuncher of a movie without wallowing in gore and excess as some other movies do. There is actually very little gore here, aside from some old decaying corpses in the killer's killing room.
The brutality of this movie (which I do not recommend to sensitive souls) is due primarily to the acting which is uniformly brilliant.
I don't know if the cast is well-known in Australia, but they're definitely not well-known elsewhere although John Jarrett (the killer) is becoming more and more well-known. He even had a cameo role in Tarantino's Django Unchained.
They are first class, though. They sell the terror and panic of the characters and it makes the whole thing nauseatingly realistic.
It is hard to watch the screen when Jarrett is torturing one of the leading ladies in his killing room. Not physically torturing, mentally. Not a drop of blood is spilt. Because of the acting.
The movie is also very downbeat and depressing, well the second half is.

By Benminx
Format:Blu-ray
Greg McLean lulls us into a false sense of security with an opening that borders on the tedious. We're introduced to the lead trio of friends at a langorous pace, McLean letting the ordinariness of pace and majesty of the countryside heighten our awareness that surely something must happen soon. And so when a very friendly and nice stranger turns up to help fix their car, offering them a lift, we're on high alert. However, the wait for anything to go wrong is very cleverly manipulated and stretched out for even more suspense, before our characters suddenly realise they're in horrifyingly deep trouble, and they might not make it out alive.
In rooting it all so firmly in normality, and some very naturalistic, non-'actory' performances from all of his cast, McLean makes this all feel horrifyingly close-up and possible, and the twisted normality of the villain and casual relaxed manner with which he inflicts horrifying events on the main characters makes it even harder to watch. Knowing that this was at least loosely based on a true story made it tough viewing for us, and a disturbing experience that will stick in the brain. A frightening protrait of appalling cruelty wrapped up in charm and normality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shock horror! 12 July 2009
By kehs TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Wow! Believe the hype. This film will have you cowering behind a cushion or under a blanket. The plot builds up at a slow pace and cleverly lulls the viewer into a false sense of calm. Then the action comes and shock after shock follows. My heart was pounding all the way through this film and I found myself screaming for the characters to survive. At points I didn't want to watch anymore but at the same time couldn't tear my eyes away. This is a fabulous film but not for the faint-hearted.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Modern Day Texas Chainsaw Massacre 8 Aug 2006
By R. Mullaney VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
The premise is simple. Three backpackers find themselves at the mercy of a violent maniac when their car breaks down in the desolate Australian outback. Similar scenarios have terrified audiences of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Hills Have Eyes and Deliverance so why overcomplicate things?

Wolf Creek stands out from other more average slasher films because of it's gritty realism, stunning scenery and gruesome violence. The violence is brutal and shocking but Wolf Creek doesn't rely on gore for scares. The film is also incredibly tense, especially as the friendly stranger quickly turns into an unpredictable psychopath. The campfire scene and the scene where the girl escapes and flags down a passing car had me on the edge of my seat. Most people would probably cite the excellent Hostel as the best horror film of 2005 but I think Wolf Creek is superior due to the good central performances and masterful filming.

By A Customer
Format:DVD
I was living in Sydney at the time of the famed backpacker killings. As the bodies were discovered in the Belangalo Forest south of Sydney, and the biggest murder investigation in Australia's history got under way, the news reports of the way the victims were tortured and murdered were absolutely shocking and profoundly disturbing. The reported perpetrator Ivan Milat was arrested, and ultimately convicted, and he is now serving a life sentence.

Now almost fourteen years later we have a movie that purports to be loosely based on those murders, and whether it should have been made at all is up to the reviewer to decide. Personally I think it's in bad taste, and is disrespectful, not only to the seven victims, but also to the victims' families. Aussie writer/director Greg McLean skewers the original real-life story, setting Woolf Creek in the wilds of the Western Australian desert where three unsuspecting backpackers come across a staggeringly evil Australian boogieman.

Liz (Cassandra Magrath), Kristy (Kestie Morassi) and Ben (Nathan Phillips) leave the tranquil coast of Broome Western Australia a beat-up jalopy after a pointless tequila and Smirnoff Ice binge and head inland, their goal being the Wolf Creek Crater, a giant, circular scar in the earth's crust, the resting place for an ancient meteorite. Their car conks out and their watches stop working when at the same moment help arrives in the form of friendly backwoods giant Mick Taylor (John Jarratt).

It's dark and cold and despite some ominous signs, they allow him to tow the car back to his place, an abandoned mining camp, where he starts to work on the repairs. But is Mick all that he seems?
