Plot:
Liz (Cassandra Magrath), Kristy (Kestie Morassi) and Ben (Nathan Phillips) are carpooling together – Liz and Kristy are tramping through Australia while Ben just wants to get back to Sidney to his girlfriend. They have a long drive ahead and only a few sights they want to stop at. One of those sights is Wolf Creek – a meteorite crater in the middle of nowhere. Unfortunately it is right there that their car breaks down. They are lucky though – or so it seems at first – when Mick (John Jarratt) picks them up and promises he can fix their car. But a night in a dead car in the outback is nothing compared to what’s in store for them.

Wolf Creek was ok. The acting was decent, the set-up nice but then I got a little bored by all the gore and torture (what a horrible sentence to write). It all got a little too much for my willingness to suspend my disbelief or to be interested at all.
