    I had a hard time watching "Wolf Creek." It is a film with one clear purpose: To establish the commercial credentials of its director by showing his skill at depicting the brutal tracking, torture and mutilation of screaming young women. When the killer severs the spine of one of his victims and calls her "a head on a stick," I wanted to walk out of the theater and keep on walking.
    It has an 82 percent "fresh" reading over at…

    I've expected a bit more gore but it wasn't needed. I liked that we get to spent time with the main characters before shit goes down. And I also liked the Villian. He's badass.

    For a film that went 9 years of me hating it, it was pretty good. I actually enjoyed this quite a bit. More than I ever thought I would for a second view. I saw it when it came out originally, and I absolutely hated it. When I said a movie was bad, this was a movie I compared it to.

    But after 9 years, I gave it another go, and ended up enjoying it immensely. Now I rate it…

    Having just watched Wolf Creek 2, it's clear as day to me that it's vastly superior to the original movie. It's really difficult to see why such a tame movie ended up being so controversial.

    My major bugbear with the movie is that little happens for the first half of the film; one might be inclined to say that there's character development going on, but I couldn't tell you a single one of the trio's names, nor anything about them…

    This film is not pointless and it does not suck. It's fantastic, has a great cast, undeniably highly likeable, interesting and compelling characters that are easy to care about and an undeniably truly cool, chilling and unforgettable villain. Greg McLean needs to make more movies because 3 fantastic, hugely underrated films equals a career, a promising one. If you don't like this film and want a crap horror film, then why don't you go watch a shitty horror film with…

    I don't like these sorts of movies. In fact I'd go so far as to say that these torture porn things are one of the most treacherous of Video-Audio compilation. That all said I wanted to watch this based on not only the international hype but also because I watned to explore Australian cinema and this being as well known as it is had to be something I looked at.

    This film is beautifully shot and well acted. The villain…

    On one hand, the story is as cliché as it can be. On the other hand the cinemathography is great, the actors are believable and the villain is nice at first and daunting at the end. It's a long time since I enjoyed a slasher movie that much.

    This is supposedly a 'torture porn' staple and I found it deeply disappointing. The film delivers a few moments but there's absolutely nothing new here.

    After finally watching this movie I have no idea why foreigners still come to our country. Don't these people know this was loosely based on real events? Fuck. I don't want to ever leave the east coast again.

    The movie itself is quite good. It has a great sense of tension and John Jarratt knocks it out of the park in the role of his career. Wolf Creek is however far from perfect and suffers from an overly long first…
