I wish I liked "Wolf Creek" more than I do, but I cannot. Mick Taylor is truly a charismatic and inventive character unlike any other villain from the gaggle of other horror movies like this. Otherwise the film is dull, contrived, and ultimately a slave to its own shock factor (which wasn't even enough to keep me interested).
misogyny anyone ? we watch in detail and in extend scenes the brutal killing of the two female characters while the guy escapes pretty easily and is saved....apparently there's something in the Anglo-saxon colony gene pool that determines people to make cruel and rotten,rotten,rotten movies
Not nearly as gory and sadistic as I was led to believe. Despite its notoriety it's more suspenseful than outright violent: the profoundly violated corpses
of previous victims inspire more fear than any of the acts of violence portrayed on screen: we think we'll see the threesome turn into corpses, too, when in fact they never do. One victim escapes, one dies offscreen, and one is simply shot. All smoke and no fire.
