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 travelling 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 Mick Taylor (John Jarratt) offers to tow them to his even more remote auto camp. What happens next ensures, among other things, that surviving audience members will never think of Crocodile Dundee in quite the same happy way again. In addition to McLean's painterly use of scenery in establishing mood, the film benefits from the slow, methodical build-up of character detail; the actors are given space to develop a believable rapport, something all too rare in this kind of film. The characters are people, not stock slasher-film types, and this makes the ensuing scenes of cruelty and violence all the more unbearable. This is one carefully crafted, genuinely scary horror film.

lol jacobs creek :-D

Awful film.i will never watch again in my life.Very violent and sickening.

Loved this film, so scary because it's based on a true story, which although means nothing, it's scary to think that there are nutters like that out there! I'd certainly never drive accross Aus after watching this film!!!

Great present for anyone going backpacking

Good movie - if you like that sort of thing . . . " . . . head on a stick . . ."

Actually, it's not based on a true story, as such. It takes elements from a number of true stories to create a completely new story. Very shocking film. Don't watch if you are easily shocked.

Yeahhhh. That's kind of the point of a horror film! I liked it at a lot. Watched it again with my GF in an empty US cinema and she loved it too.

Wouldn't buy it on BD though at the additional price , happy with a DVD.

Terrible film

Head on a stick was brilliant

I watched it at an odeon 'film tba' where you would go in not knowing what you were watching, it was very entertaining to watch loads of older couples walk out around the time he was torturing the girls and head on a stick

Nice price though

great film

Head on a stick was brilliant. Loved the concept and would certainly love the concept being introduced in other films. Voted piping hot!

Its a violent film but the story is good and creepy and its amazing in blu-ray .

good film
