BASED partly on the disappearance of Huddersfield backpacker Peter Falconio, director Greg Mclean (pictured) paints a brutal and bloody picture of Australia in this low budget horror thriller.
Wolf Creek tells of three backpackers travelling the Outback.
When their vehicle breaks down they accept help from a friendly local, Mick, who manoeuvres them into letting him tow it to his camp, an abandoned mining site. They soon realise Mick has no intention of fixing their vehicle, or of letting them leave - ever.
Tapping into that universal fear of being stranded on the open road, Wolf Creek is a nerve-racking thrill-ride, which reminds us to beware the kindness of strangers.
There are lashings of blood and gore as the three try to escape Mick.
It's a decent horror movie but uncomfortable viewing for anyone familiar with the story of Peter Falconio.
