Say what you like about the Australians, but we’ve got more in common with our former colonist brothers across the ocean than we’d like to admit. We all love rugby, we’re home to a ton of cultures and most importanly, anyone who lives in the outback sections of Australia/South Africa is most likely armed to the teeth and a complete lunatic. So say g’day again, to Mick Taylor.
The Australian outback is a lonely, isolated place—the perfect playground for a sadistic serial killer with a penchant for bloodthirsty sport. A red wasteland, the stifling, oppressive heat isn’t the only menace that should be feared. Bored with the so-called commercial tourism of the city, young and idealistic backpackers Rutger and Katarina yearn to explore the “real” Australia and travel to the hauntingly beautiful but desolate Wolf Creek National Park. Far from civilization, the breathtaking vistas and vast open spaces belie a danger lurking in the shadows. Psychopathic pigshooter Mick Taylor is the last man any outback traveler wants to meet and now his irreverent attitude towards human life has escalated to a sadistic new level. Wolf Creek 2 will have your pulse racing. Paralyzed with fear, we all bear witness as Mick offers no mercy to his victims.
I’m genuinely looking forward to this film. Greg McLean looks like he’s going to steal every scene that he’s in, and is one step away from driving a knife into the face of the first tourist who starts quoting Crocodile Dundee in his presence. Wolf Creek 2 opens in cinemas on May 17, but it’ll be getting a digital release before that this April.
