Movie Review: Wolf Creek

Wolf Creek is another Australian horror movie. This one was in the tradition of > The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Like TCM, Wolf Creek is based true events. To me, that makes this movie just a little scarier. Nothing sets my hair on end like the human monster.

Three friends embark on a cross-country drive, stopping along the way to take in the sights of the great outback. When they stop to hike in the meteor crater at Wolf Creek, they fall into the clutches of a maniac who has been terrorizing tourists for what appears to be decades.

This is a seriously gory movie; lots of blood, lots of screaming and lots of psychotic behavior. It has just enough twists and turns to keep you guessing. If you are a fan of Slasher films, this one is a must see.


Rating: 5 Stars

Scary movies are my favorite and this one I really liked because it is based on truth . This movie was good because just when you thought you had it figured out it took another turn . It was a bit slow at first but when the action starts , it is non stop .

Breazy, I agree it did start a little slow, but it did give us an opportunity to have a vested interest in the well being of the characters. I think it helped me empathize that much more when the blood started to flow.
