Wolf Creek ★ 2005 (R)

In the Australian Outback, three young adults, Ben (Phillips), Liz (Magrath) and Kristy (Morassi) are on a cross-country car trip. Having purchased a cheap junker for the trek, the threesome find they've been stranded in the bush when the car fails to start. In an unlikely stroke of luck, a tow truck-driving bushman named Mick (Jarratt) appears and assures them he can repair the car but must tow them back to his compound. So begins the unrelenting stream of torturous (to them and the audience) horrors. More than a wee bit over the top. 95m/C DVD, HD DVD . John Jarratt, Kestie Morassi, Nathan Phillips, Cassandra Magrath; D: Greg Mclean; W: Greg Mclean; C: William Gibson; M: Francois Tetaz.
