Three backpackers travel into the Australian Outback only to find themselves stranded at Wolf Creek crater. Once there, they are encountered by a bushman, Mick Taylor, who offers them a ride back to his place. Little do the three know that their adventure into the Outback would be a complete nightmare after the backpackers find a way to escape.
(at around 1h 15 mins) The movie is set in August 1999, however, a Euro note and an 'Elizabeth Fry' five pound note are pinned on the wall in Mick's hideout. Euros and Elizabeth Fry fivers did not come into circulation until 2002. See more »

This is a very good horror fest.
There is a subtlety about this movie, that makes it so chilling, and so very real. It's a style of storytelling that seems to have been lost in recent years, with so much emphasis on gore and shock, that the story gets lost. Wolf Creek is chilling, believable, and even though at tines you know what's coming next, you cannot help but sit uncomfortably in your seat. The acting is great all round, very sincere, and the location work is of course fantastic.
It put me off wanting a trip to the Aussie outback, so it made an impact. I joke of course, but this is a truly classic horror movie. 7/10
