Wolf Creek 2: Director's Cut: Blu Ray Review
Released by Roadshow Home Ent
Mick is back.
After haunting up peoples' worlds in the 2005 movie Wolf Creek, there's been a long drink between these films.
Wolf Creek 2 is deeply unpleasant in parts, though, it has to be said nowhere near as bad as the first film which spawned this Aussie menace. With the initial police sequence appearing to be something more out of parody than fright, it feels like the tone is a little sillier than before with Mick reduced more to a caricature than an horrific figure. After the start though, the film shifts back into familiar horror and Wolf Creek territory as the game gets increasingly more concerted and perverse.
While Wolf Creek 2 won't be for all tastes, it's certainly a horror that knows what it wants - but by throwing in sarcastic quips from Mick after his killings, it feels cheaper than before, but still as effective.
