Wolf Creek (2005) Review

Wolf Creek (2005) is an Australian horror movie that was a nice movie to watch and is based on some true facts. It is one of those movies that you watch once and just about had enough of it - it is not on my watch again list. Greg Mclean (Wolf Creek 2, Rogue, 6 Miranda Drive) is the writer and director of Wolf Creek. He could have done a better job at executing this movie to be a masterpiece. Wolf Creek contains extreme violence, gore, sexual reference and gesture, bad language, suspense and drug use.

Liz Hunter (Cassandra Magrath - Ocean Girl, SeaChange, Crash Zone), Ben Mitchell (Nathan Phillips - Snakes on a Plane, Chernobly Diaries, Australian Rules) and Kristy Earl (Kestie Morassi - Darkness Falls, Satisfaction, Signs) are three friends that are backpacking across the country. Liz and Kristy are British tourists, and Ben is an Australian native. The three friends are partying it up every night by getting drunk and having campouts on the beach. The journey was fantastically fun at Wolf Creek National Park, and Ben even proclaimed his feelings to Liz with a kiss. Thier fun night came to an end when they returned to their vehicle that would not start. The three friends decide to sleep in the park and get help in the morning.

Mick Taylor (John Jarratt - Django Unchained, Australia, Wolf Creek 2) appear after dark and offered to tow their vehicle back to his camp to repair it. The friends agreed after hesitating at first, and Mick took them on a drive several hours south to a mining site. Kristy and Liz did not trust Mick, but Ben could care less. Mick and his new friends/captives sit around the fire. Mick serves them water that is drugged to make them unconscious. The friends woke up to find themselves tied up and away from each other. We saw how Kristy and Liz fought to save their lives and how one of them had a gruesome death. Ben was tied to a crucifix and untied himself. He escaped and fainted next to a highway where a couple picks him up, and he eventually got airlifted to a hospital. Ben was then in custody for four months until he was cleared of all charges against Kristy and Liz. The girl’s bodies were never found.

If you would like to know all the missing details about the girls then watch the movie. I gave this movie a six because there is too many movies that are similar - we need new stories.
