Plot – Spoilers:
Couple of Brit girls, Liz and Kristy accompanied by their Aussie friend Ben are journeying across the picturesque outback emptiness and stop over at the Wolf Creek crater.

As the local guy, the onus is often on Ben to figure things out, as the girls gang up to highlight his every fuckup. As it turns out, their car won’t start and they’re left to spend the night outside the incredibly dark and eerily lonely crater. Just then, friendly Mick turns up in his truck, offering to help fix things back at his camp. And so they allow themselves to be towed to camp.

The arrival of handyman Mick further emasculates Ben and he takes to sarcastic jibes to establish his city-boy superiority. The girls are also smug about the potency of their feminine charm and feel it’s good enough fuel to keep the boorish but useful Mick laboring through the night to get their car fixed. Not really.

Great Aussie film. John Jarratt plays his role to perfection as do the two girls as a pair of airheads who would not have a clue. This film is loosely based on Ivan Milat, the backpacker killer who recently died in jail. I have not seen part 2 yet, hoping it will turn up here eventually. Thx EUM for including some Aussie classics.

Not as impactful as I remember it to be the first time I saw this (the second one may even be better which saddens me) but John Garrett as Mick is one of the bad best guys ever – pure evil. Highly recommend the second film and TV series too.

This is a classic here in Australia, everyone here knows this film. Also John Jarratts son goes to my school, such a shame his father turned out to be a rapist.

Hola administrador, bienvenido de mexico.
You make the best movie treasures.
Shit just got real when Mick Taylor says: See? Head on a stick!
John Jarratt and Cassandra Magrath acting is riveting
in the scene where he sticks a hunting knife into her lower back and
severes her spine – leaving her alive
and in shock and paralyzed from the neck down!

Creator, admin, whoever runs or controls this site and is reading this: TYSM! Best movie website out there. Not just this movie but countless others I would’ve never encountered if it wasn’t for this site. Many, many hours of intrigue, shock, disgust, humor, perplexing flims. Thanks a million!!! ????

I just don’t understand why everyone seems to love this series so much. I don’t care for it, and can’t seem to grasp the magic everyone else claims to experience from this, or it’s sequel.
