Many of you Wolf Creek fans were wondering when the US release would happen, and we are pleased to tell you the Wolf Creek series will premiere on October 14, 2016. Full details in the press release below.
From the Press Release:
Inspired by one of the most terrifying cult movie franchises ever released in theaters, named one of "The 25 best horror movies since 2000" (AV Squad), one of "The 100 Best Horror films" (Time Out), and one of "The 25 Best Horror Movies Since The Shining" (Vulture), the six-part television event "WOLF CREEK" is a psychological thriller premiering exclusively on Pop on Friday, October 14, at 10:00 PM ET/PT.
In conjunction with Lionsgate Television and Zodiak Rights (a Banijay Group company), the "WOLF CREEK" television series on Pop stars John Jarratt, who reprises his movie role as the murdering psychopath Mick Taylor, wreaking havoc in the Australian Outback--except this time, things are different. The television series immediately turns the entire genre on its head when a 19-year-old American college student, played by rising star Lucy Fry, survives the massacre of her parents and little brother and sets out to hunt down the killer and avenge her family.
Based on true events, the original WOLF CREEK movie was introduced in 2005 at the Sundance and Cannes Film Festivals before achieving global box office success and cult film status among horror fans around the world.
"‘WOLF CREEK’ is holy shit scary!" said Greg McLean, executive producer of the "WOLF CREEK" television series and the writer, director, and producer of the WOLF CREEK movies. "The television series delivers the same pulse-pounding tension and terror of the films combined with a storyline that evolves into a suspense-filled, character-driven psychological thriller. In many ways, ‘WOLF CREEK’ is more like a Western--set in the untamed, desolate landscape of the Australian Outback, with gritty characters and an immersive story of revenge and good versus evil."
"‘WOLF CREEK’ is a binge-worthy, premium revenge tale that we are thrilled to bring fans at the perfect time of the year," said Brad Schwartz, President, Pop. "To turn everything you expect from a horror film around and hunt the psychopath through a strong and singularly-focused female protagonist is thrilling to watch. It is probably the scariest series to ever premiere on basic cable and will have viewers hooked 13:40 minutes into the first episode."
The story of "WOLF CREEK" begins when an American family is on holiday in Northern Australia and becomes the unsuspecting prey of Mick Taylor, a sadistic serial killer who hunts and kills tourists in the Outback. The sole survivor is Eve Thorogood, a college student, who vows to bring the killer to justice or die in the attempt. The story of "WOLF CREEK" reveals her complex and extraordinary journey, traveling every step of the way as she evolves from child to adult, from prey to predator. But can she triumph over Mick Taylor, evil incarnate?
