Every slasher needs a sequel, but with the original Wolf Creek it did not feel necessary. Sure the killer Mick was still at large, but it told its tale and involved elements of the so called 'torture porn' genre. How can you make a sequel, well thankfully the producers have decided to take the wacky route, rather than rehashing the same old formula over and over again. As a sequel if the original Wolf Creek was the Texas chainsaw massacre, this is 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2', the wackier, funnier and more entertaining sequel.
After Mick takes care of the police in a very humours intro we jump to a German backpacker couple who are traveling the outback of Australia. The couple see the sites of the outback, and let me say the cinematography is quite stunning in some scenes with the vast outback shining. After a day camping the couple decide to take camp on a vast land, when conveniently Mick arrives in his truck. Mick tells the backpackers they are on a protected area, but they refuses to listen; after the boyfriend is stabbed, the girlfriend is kidnapped. Now one thing for fans of gore, this one ups the guts level. We see Mick chopping up a body with meat being exposed to the camera.
The German girl manages to escape when her paths are crossed by a young British man called Paul, he picks her up. He is then chased by Mick in his small car. From here the film becomes a game of cat and mouse, and this is essentially the main premise. There is a large amount of action in this movie that will keep you in suspense, especially when Mick is chasing after Paul in a massive truck. It reminded myself very much of say 'Mad Max 2' where we have these long open chase scenes. The third and final act is probably the strongest leaving you frightened at how well John Jarrett can pull off a serial killer.
