    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…

    Couple of groanworthy cliches aside, this nasty slasher gets by with a sumptuous look and one of the great horror villains.

    I do prefer the more comedic sequel which features more on-screen Mick.

    "Now Lizzy... A rifle in the wrong hands can be you know, really dangerous. So, GIVE ME THE FUCKING-*BANG*"

    I'm re-watching a lot of stuff in short intervals, it's very strange...

    4 thoughts for 4 stars;

    1) John Jarratt's silhouette needs more praise.

    2) The chicks in this are like a poor man's Keira Knightley and Amy Adams. Also, the Letterboxd poster for this sucks, there's a much better one involving poor-man's-Amy Adams on the highway...much better.

    3) Greg McLean…

    A slow start but the grindhouse feel to the film builds the tension well. The depiction of violence was pretty raw, but it was an watchable film.

    I think I saw this shortly after it's release on cable or something. It was vaguely familiar. This is based loosely on some real outback murders. Gross people exist, what a bum-out mannnnn. Australian Justin Timberlake and his British friends are going on a drive through the outback. A crater bungs up their electrical system on the car, and lots of not good stuff happens from there. Lots of questionable decision making on behalf of the players, but in situations like the one depicted in this movie, it's important to consider how hard it would be to make wise choices. Fine high tension horror.
