Wolf Creek 2: DVD Review











The Movie:

Lured by the promise of an Australian holiday, exchange student Paul visits the notorious Wolf Creek Crater. His dream Outback adventure soon becomes a horrific reality when he encounters the site’s most infamous local, Mick Taylor (John Jarratt). When Paul attempts to flee, Mick pursues him across a hostile wasteland and eventually drags him back to his underground lair. After seeing the true magnitude of Mick’s monstrosity, Paul’s only hope of surviving, where no one has before, will be to use every ounce of cunning to outwit the man behind the monster.

We all know the great horror icons like Leatherface, Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers. Now we need to make some room for the Aussie serial killer named Mick Taylor. Immediately I saw shades of “The Hills Have Eyes” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” which I absolutely love and the moment we meet Mick again you know something horrible is going to happen (obviously). What we are treated to is a wild ride of mayhem and blood that doesn’t slow down one bit until the very end. His relentlessness is the thing that makes the film interesting and engaging but you honestly you can’t help but feeling immensely horrible for the people that this psycho is chasing. He chases one person and gets his target and if someone even slightly gets in the way he will set his sights on the next person and so on and so on. It really is insane but that’s what makes this horror/thriller so fun to watch. John Jarratt is so creepy as Mick Taylor and does such a great job at being such a demented individual that he has cemented his spot in horror history. Mick almost reminds me of a human version of the T-1000 because he just doesn’t stop and seems so un-killable. There are certain graphic moments in the film that you will cringe at a bit because of how gruesome it is but that definitely makes a fantastic scary movie. As a horror lover I can give you my recommendation with confidence that you be entertained.

Special Features:

Creating A Monster: The Making Of Wolf Creek 2 – An extensive BTS feature that runs in at almost an hour. You won’t be disappointed in the interviews with the cast and crew and just how deep it goes regarding making of the film.

Butcher’s Cut: Deleted Scenes – There are about 25 minutes worth of cut footage and alternate takes here that will actually keep you watching. Occasionally there are a scene of two here that could’ve been left out completely but that’s about it. Everything else here is worth the watch.

Wolf Creek 2 is available NOW on Blu-ray and DVD from Image Entertainment
