We were the first to bring you a gallery of looks at Wolf Creek and back in January we also brought you an early user review for the film just after Dimension picked it up at the Sundance Film Festival.
Well, things have changed a bit, the film is now set up at The Weinstein Co. and is finally scheduled to release in the US on January 6th, 2006 and another user has just added their opinion on the film in our forum and we have added new QuickTime links to the domestic trailer and the Weinstein Co. has updated the official site!
Wolf Creek is based on true events and tells the chilling story of three backpackers travelling in remote Outback Australia. When their vehicle breaks down they accept help from a friendly local, Mick Taylor (John Jarratt) inspects their vehicle and manoeuvres them into letting him tow it, promising to replace the faulty part at his camp. It takes hours to reach his place: an abandoned mining site complete with defunct tunnels and huts. The travellers cook food in exchange for repairs and fresh water. Mick recalls his life as a professional vermin shooter, and then works on the car as his guests fall asleep.
The next day they wake up only to find they have abducted in the isolated Australian Outback, and they realize Mick has no intention of fixing their vehicle, or of them leaving… ever again.
