Alright, taking a break from the Remake series to give you guys another movie to avoid. I haven’t done one of these in awhile, since lately I’ve just been turning movies off (most recently, turned off The Returned) – – anyways! Here we go, one for you to avoid.
Alright, so this one … I was going to do a full review for and then realized that I hated it. So, I’m going to keep this quick.
The outback once more becomes a place of horror as another unwitting tourist becomes the prey for crazed, serial-killing pig-hunter Mick Taylor.
Well there you go. I saw the first Wolf Creek in theaters back in 2005, and genuinely don’t remember a lot of it. So, this is really just based on this movie alone. It’s stupid. We spend 1/3 of the movie getting to know this semi-charming German couple, only to have them brutally murdered. They are then replaced by an English ‘surfer dude’ that we don’t really know anything about. The next 1/3 of the movie is spent with this guy running away from MICK TAYLAH, including a scene where Mick runs over DOZENS of Kangaroos in a semi-truck. The final 1/3 is set in Mick’s murder-dungeon where he subjects our surfer dude to some weird Aussie history quiz, eventually the guy escapes.
The movie is charmless, and mediocre. It has a couple of satisfyingly gory kills, but really they just aren’t enough to make this movie worth watching. Plus, the scene with the Kangaroos and the semi-truck is so over the top and … bordering on silly, that the movie just stilts further.
Overall, skip this stupid movie. If you want something BRUTAL and you’re looking for a gritty horror movie go check out Martyrs, or High Tension.
This one sucks.
