A trio of youngsters - Ben (Nathan Phillips), Liz (Cassandra Magrath) and Kristy (Kestie Morassi) - make a daytrip to Wolf Creek, the biggst crater in all of Australia, but when they want to go back, their car won't start.

So here they are, in the middle of nowhere, with none of their mobiles working, and nobody might pass by for days. Fortunately though that old Mick (John Jarrat) stops by and offers his help ... Fortunately indeed, or so our youngsters think.

Soon enough, Liz finds herself all tied up, and once she has freed herself and takes a peek in the next room, she finds Mick torturing Kristy. Only by blowing up her own car can Liz divert Mick's attention long enough for her to free Kristy, then the girls somehow even make a getaway ... but rather stupidly, they crash the car they get away with on purpose to fake an accident and make him think they are dead ... which is pretty much where the film has lost me. Now the girls, with Kristy badly hurt, have to make their way back to Mick's place on foot to steal another car, and while Liz is checking out which is the best car - Mick has loads of cars from his former victims -, Mick catches up with her and brutally cuts her spine.

Meanwhile, Kristy has made it to the street on foot (a car would really have helped here), and even manages to stop another car ... but soon enough, Mick kills that car's driver, and after a short car chase, he murders Kristy as well.

At this point, Ben, who has spent his time crucified in Mick's hut, wakes up, manages to free his arms from the nails which have held him at the cross and makes a clean getaway ... only to be later tried for the murder of the two girls.

Eventually, a title card tells us, Ben was acquitted, while neither the bodies of the two girls nor serial killer Mick were ever found.


In case you wondered, yes, this film is more than a little reminiscent of Tobe Hooper's Texas Chainsaw Massacre, but without that movie's rawness, roughness or panache. Wolf Creek is just a mix of postcard perfect images, uninspired violence and a series of leaps in logic and reason, and at one and a half hours it's way too long for its feeble storyline, which is completely devoid of any plottwists.

Pretty boring, actually.
