Wolf Creek 2 coming with more Australian mayhem

11.04.2010

I had heard high praise for WOLF CREEK a few years ago, so I decided to check it out. Good original horror is hard to find, and the promise of an Australia-based slasher seemed intriguing to say the least.

For me, the original was a mixed bag. I liked how the killer was far more jovial (at least initially) than any we'd previously seen, and that most of the film took place in the broad daylight. But toward the end of the film, it veered into stupid horror cliches (if you knock out a bad guy, make SURE he's dead before running away), and I was ultimately less than impressed.

But now WOLF CREEK 2 is on the horizon, and according to Bloody Disgusting director Greg McLean and star John Jarratt are returning. Here's a quick plot summary: "While seeking an authentic Australian adventure, one unlucky backpacker learns the deepest, darkest secrets of the Outback’s most infamous serial killer."

Sounds exactly like the first film, except at that point there were a few unlucky backpackers who learned his darkest secrets.

A few years ago, McLean had this to say about a sequel. "I'd like to see what else Mick is up to, for sure, but I'm not sure anyone else in the world does. You've got to top the first one, and how much horror can you handle? If I did make Wolf Creek 2 it would almost have to be unreleasable, rated XXX, banned all over the world, never to be screened in public. That's kind of intriguing."

But now? There's a script "maintaining the logic and rules of the first movie [whilst ensuring] its link to reality and the true crime genre is never lost."

Hm, I never questioned the link to "reality" in the first film, so what will this one be doing to stretch those limits?

Head over to Bloody Disgusting for the first teaser poster from the film. 

Extra Tidbit: Also, never trash your only working car when attempting to fake your own death to escape.

Yes please.

Wolf Creek is top 5 horror for me. It was sick as hell and borderline snuff material but it scared the hell outta me. If it werent for McLean sitting in the director's chair i would probobly not go near it.

couldn't get into the first at all.. I dunno.. the whole thing just felt tired. Like I've seen it 400 times before.

No expectations,but...

..I thoroughly enjoyed the first one,I thought it was sick,twisted and quite refreshing to see the main protagonists meet their demise in horrible fashion,not sure if this sequel is needed but if they can think of way that doesn't play out exactly like the first one I'm all for it!

The original movie is a putrid rancid excuse to torture women for ninety minutes. I'll be skipping this.

The first film thoroughly pissed me off with the characters' stupidity (and this coming from a slasher fan), so I'm guessing I'll skip the sequel.
