Wolf Creek Reviews
Three friends are touring around the outback of Western Australia when their car breaks down. A local, Mick Taylor, offers to help them and invites them back to his place. Little do they know that he is a psychopathic killer.
Very intriguing and engaging. Certainly not your average slasher-horror-thriller, though the bar is set very low there. The tension is built gradually, with the bad guy taking a while to reveal himself. Doesn't borrow too heavily from horror clichés and the conclusion is never obvious.
Great work by John Jarratt as Mick Taylor - very convincing and suitably menacing and superficially charming as the killer. Solid performances by Cassandra Magrath, Kestie Morassi and Nathan Phillips as the three tourists.
I would have liked to have seen more gore to be honest.
