A dream vacation turns into a nightmare in this taut thriller from Australia. Ben (Nathan Phillips), Lizzie (Cassandra Magrath), and Kristy (Kestie Morassi) are three friends who, after a night of celebratory drinking, hit the road for a trip to Wolf Creek National Park, where they plan to spend a week hiking and surfing. The three friends are happy to be spending time together, especially after Ben makes the happy discovery that Lizzie is as infatuated with him as he is with her. However, after a long day on foot, Ben, Lizzie, and Kristy make the unpleasant discovery that their car's battery is dead, leaving them stuck in the middle of nowhere. Help arrives in the form of Mick (John Jarratt), a burly but good-natured outdoorsman who happens upon them; Mick tells them that he can fix their car, and offers to give them a ride to his place down the road. Grateful but a bit nervous around the gregarious stranger, Ben, Lizzie, and Kristy offer Mick a wealth of thanks for his help, and give him some money for his troubles before they fall asleep around the campfire. The next morning, the travelers find themselves bound, gagged, drugged, and separated from one another, and they realize Mick is not the good Samaritan they imagined. Wolf Creek was the first feature film from writer and director Greg McLean.

Being such a fan of horror movies, I saw this without even knowing anything about it. It became different than most horror movies I've seen though. For the first half of the film, it follows no one but the three actors, actually developing the characters unlike most horror movies where actors are simply given names before they are murdered by faceless, almost non-human, people. In Wolf Creek, the movie is slow because it's taking it's time. It wants you to actually care when they wake up, bound, gagged and about to be tortured by the mad-man, who is actually based off of an actual Australian serial killer. This movie is not the best horror movie I've ever seen but it certainly isn't the worst. If you're a true fan of the genre, you might want to give this one a shot.
Wolf Creek tells the story of the real Austrailian Backpack Murderer, and three of his victims, Lizzie, Ben, and Kristy. We follow the three friends as they vacation to the outskirts of Australia to back pack through the forest of Wolf Creek. Upon their return to their car, they find it won't start and are rescued by a friendly hunter. They join him at his home, and find that he is truly a good samaritan, befriending all of them. But as morning rolls around, each of the friends wake-up alone, bound, and even tortured, and they soon realize their rescuer may not be what he seems. And the ultimate question arises, who will make it out of Wolf Creek?
I rented this movie without knowing anything about it. Frankly, I thought it was going to be about a wolf. Well, the monster turns out to be human which is far worse. This is a deeply disturbing movie. Almost makes you afraid to go anywhere on vacation. I highly recommend it.
If a was on a vacation, I would definitely not watch this horror hilm. It is an authentic horror film, partly because it allegedly actually happened. A quick summary is to say that a bunch of young naive travellers from the city in Australia go out in the rough Outback of Australia where their car breaks down. A nice Samaritan comes and picks them up, but he really isn't so nice. That's when the fun starts, played disturbing well by John Jarrett, or Mick the Aussie Outback Good Samaritan who turns out to be a killer. Not for children or people that have been through traumatic experiences. Greg McLean can drive you to the edge in this dark directorial debut.
This movie was horrible. The film shooting was bad. It was very slow. The review makes it sound really good and thats why I decided to watch it. It did give me the creeps but not because it was scary more like because it could really happen and I believe it did. What it did do for me was make me not want to go anywhere near Australia. Watch at your own risk.
From watching the previews, it looked really scary next to Hostel. Though it seemed kinda slow during the beginning but like it was near the end of the movie when they came to the scary part. And I was kinda disappointed when the got rid of the character(s) I assumed would survive and plus they showed more of the two characters than the other one and then the movie ended disappointely cause they never found the two characters that went missing and the killer.
