Wolf Creek (2005)

Loosely based on real events, this backpacking serial killer chiller is precisely the kind of film to put you off ever visiting the Australian outback. Set near the huge real-life meteorite crater from which the film gets its name, Wolf Creek verges on the outright disgusting as it tracks the unfortunate fate of two British travellers and their Aussie mate after they chance upon the seemingly helpful Mick Taylor (John Jarratt). When their car mysteriously refuses to start, jolly Croc Dundee-type Mick offers to tow them back to his ramshackle abode where he regales them with tall stories… before spiking their drinks. And then it all goes off on a bender of such epically nasty proportions you find yourself watching through parted fingers. It’s that kinda film. DA
Dir Greg Mclean (Nathan Phillips, Cassandra Magrath, John Jarratt)
