Wolf Creek – Movie Review

Posted on 19 August 2011 by Sam

Total Crap


I’ve decided to start a series of movie reviews, viagra primarily centering around horror and science fiction, because I’ve been watching a lot of that lately.  To start with I’ll review this golden nugget of a turd that I watched last night.


I’ll begin by showing you why I decided to watch this particular film, Wolf Creek.  Shot in Australia, this film apparently received glowing reviews from two of my favorite directors:


“One of the great horror film heavies of the last 25 years.” — Quentin Tarantino


“…As real as horror gets…” — Robert Rodriguez



I’d really like the see the context from which these quotes were taken because I simply cannot believe that these film maestros felt this way about this movie.  This movie is total and utter shit.  It’s not even remotely scary, the acting is terrible, and it lacks anything even closely resembling a well constructed story/plot.  6th graders could have come up with a better story than this one.  Supposedly it’s based on a  true story, but if that’s the case, then it’s based an extremely uninteresting true story.  It lacks anything that could be called a good climax or ending, and basically wastes 100 minutes of your life going nowhere.


While watching this with fellow Party Animal Alicia Felix we actually found ourselves laughing at how bad it was more than anything (granted we were really stoned).  The first half of the film goes nowhere and does nothing to build suspense or dread, and the second half is nothing more than a few shock shots of brutal gore that do nothing to improve or better the film.  The film’s villain is a psycho Aussie from the deep Outback, but other than a penchant for weapons and torturing innocent victims, this guy really isn’t a scary antagonist.  There’s nothing creepy or disturbing about him.  Give me Michael Meyers or Freddy Kruger any day.


Lame Villain


Anyway, I’m not going to waste any more time talking about this piece of garbage.  In fact, after watching it I almost threw the DVD into the garbage.  But after careful consideration I’ve decided I’m going to give it to Coke Horse and watch him stomp on it with his hooves. That will be so much more gratifying.  Or maybe he’ll grind it up into a powder and snort it.  I wouldn’t recommend that though, it would probably give him terrible shits.
