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.

Watching the film you would never guess that the film was shot in just 5 weeks with a million dollar budget so you have to give immense credit to the film crew for making it look like an expensive picture. Shot in HD, Will Gibsons cinematography is superb with some beautiful shots of southern Australia. Many of the scenes were shot with handheld cameras and this aesthetic aproach lends the film a documentary feel that adds to the overall creepiness of the film. (I also love the colour of the film and and the music score is unsettling that reflects well the characters plight).
But for me, what makes this film stand out from more recent horror films is the strong acting which makes the film more believable. The three young leads are a great credit to this picture as their naturalistic performances made me sympathetic to their plight and I was rooting for them all through the film. But the actor who steals the film is John Jarrett for his portrayal of Mick Taylor. His character is engaging, friendly, creepy, funny and sinister and you will remember his performance long after the film has ended. (Also with his hat on in some scenes he echoes Freddy Kruegar). An excellent film then, with all the horror tropes in tact (young backpackers, desolate roads, creepy stranger etc) but carried out with a realism and panache that is both effective and chilling. Modern day horror films take note.
N.B According to Wikipedia Wolf Creek 2 is due out February next year with John Jarret reprising his role as Mick Taylor so that is something to look forward to. Thanks for reading.
Really upsetting ending too. The whole thing has changed my desire to go travelling in the outback. A great dramatisation of a true story.
The truth that those films were in fact propaganda to lure young tourists into the isolated depths of Australia! So that once there and cut off from society, the sadistic locals with a thirst for bloodshed and a knack for torture could hone their skills and have their wicked way with them!
I'd like to extend my gratitude to those who suffered and died so that the truth could be revealed...
