Effective Aussie film

"30,000 people are reported missing in Australia every year.

90 percent are found within a month.

Some are never seen again."

Wolf Creek is tagged as "based on true events". This statement is in the same vein as tagging the cult favourite 1974 horror film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre as "based on true events". Essentially, the core of the concept of Wo... read more

I gotta be honest with you, I don't know if this film even deserves a "6". I was tempted to give it a "5". Let's just say it is worth a good 5.8. There are several reasons for that rating. One being the story. The story was just as basic as any horror film. Three friends take a backpacking trip in Austraila, and are befriended by a knife wielding maniac. You are probably thinking, I have heard tha... read more

Die Darsteller agieren glaubhaft, aber wie soft of in Horrorfilmen tragen eher Story und Inszenierung zum Gelingen bei. Beides ist Regisseur Greg McLean geglückt. Mit beeindruckenden Landschaftsaufnahmen des australischen Outbacks und einer sich langsam entwickelnde Liebesgeschichte zwischen zwei Hauptprotagonisten bringt er die Figuren dem Zuseher näher und wiegt ihn in Sicherheit.

Description: WOLF CREEK is a grim and disturbing horror film, based on actual events in the TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE vein. It's also beautifully shot, with director Greg McLean (in his feature film debut) making the otherworldly majesty of Australia's outback emerge as a part of the story. Cassandra Magrath and Kesti Morassi play the two young British girls traveling with their Aussie friend, Ben (Nathan Phillips), to Wolf Creek, the remote location of a giant meteor crater. When their car breaks down, a jovial, Crocodile Dundee-type named John Jarrett (Mick Taylor) offers to tow them to his even more remote auto camp. What happens next ensur ... (more)

"21-10-01 SHUDDER/REWATCH OLDIES-STILL GOODIES OMG. I flipped out over this movie the first time I saw it. Esp the ending. Holy. This movie was a 'what am I comparing it to" and I don't know kind of thing. So many movies are based on Ed Gein... it was a new true-life boogeyman, Ivan Milat. And John Jarratt - oh holy shit - well, it made a Hannibal the Cannibal impression on us all. It was that damn good. Crocodile Dundee, my ass. Mick is such the campfire conversationalist. And THAT laugh..."

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"A blistering jolt of existential terror that doesn’t come with the noxious sexual baggage that typically dooms its horror ilk, Wolf Creek begins with the stunning image of sunset-tinted waves crashing onto the sands of an Australian beachfront. For a split second, this expressionistic shot resembles a volcano blowing its top, and the realization that it’s something entirely more mundane exemplifies the unsettling tenor of the film’s casual shocks. Like The Hitcher and Near Dark before it, "

"Muistikuvia aika paljon huonommaksi osoittautunut Wolf Creek, ei ollutkaan enää kovin sykähdyttävä. Muistan, kun joskus vuonna 2005 luulin, että tässä olisi kyseessä ihmissusifilmi, koska tuohon aikaan elettiin pienessä buumissa. Silloin yllätys oli positiivinen. Olihan elokuva varsin erilainen kuin mielikuva siitä. Nyt vuosien jälkeen koko sarjamurhaajatemmellys tuntuu varsin pitkäveteiseltä. Pohjustus kestää lähes puolet elokuvasta, jonka jälkeen tätä tositapahtumaa aletaa"
