Possibly one of the most horrifying films ever, Wolf Creek is shocking and will have the same impact on audiences as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It's so brutal and ultimately realistic that nightmares are sure to surface after viewing this masterpiece. Surprisingly, the film was picked up for distribution by Dimension, the gods of horrible horror films. Obviously they knew what they were doing here. The film is also rumored to have the biggest theatrical release of any Australian flick in the history of cinema, so that alone tells you something positive about the flick. Way to go Dimension! Wolf Creek tells the story of three friends who decide to go on a road trip into the outback of Australia to a place known as Wolf Creek. Unfortunately, the three of them experience some car trouble and are unable to continue traveling. They panic about the situation only to be offered a ride into town by a gentleman living in the outback. They except the offer of course, and things go downhill from there as they quickly realize that the gentleman isn't in a position to help them. I don't want to giveaway too many details for that could spoil the incredible experience you will have when you view the film. I will say, however, that tragedy and torture share the same face. The film is beautifully shot and the Australian location is definitely put to good use. The atmosphere is calm and then unsettling. It's like a pattern that continues to repeat itself throughout the entire film. Also, the camera's definition is excellent. It's clear, crisp, and definitely surprising when you figure out that the entire film was shot on a high definition digital camera and transferred to a 35mm camera. Acting is always a huge factor in horror films. Most actors in horror films, however, are highly insulting and just make the outcome of the film worse. Well fortunately, Wolf Creek is one that gets it right. The actors are full of emotions and prosperity that you will actually feel that what's happening to them on screen is actually happening to them. It's absolutely bizarre. Most of the actors starring in the film were completely new auditions to my slate, but probably some of the best I've come across while viewing a horror film. Unlike most stereotypical horror films, the characters in Wolf Creek give you a reason to care for them. They make you want them to live. The script couldn't have been written better. Every aspect of the script is stable and always necessary. There's no one part in the script that shouldn't exist. Everything outlined, discussed, said and done is done for a reason. Whether that reason is to get the characters out of the situation they are in or to deliver emotions, there's always a reason for that single part of the script to exist. The dialogue is outstanding and highly believable. There's no searching in dark rooms to see if there's a sadistic killer hiding behind the door. Everything that exist in the script is realistic. I felt as if I was actually living this movie experience. What got me was the budget. The budget doesn't even compare to the quality that I was presented to when viewing the film. It's unbelievable that a film as well done and big-budget as Wolf Creek could have such a low budget as two million. In this case, the film compares much to that of Saw which was made for less than that. After finally seeing this seemingly over-hyped film, I must admit that I was taken by surprise and instantly pulled into the film before even five minutes into it. Wolf Creek is one of those films that reminds why I like horror films. It brings back a hope that there still is something original out there just waiting to be discovered. Wolf Creek is definitely a must see if your looking to actually be scared. It's realistic and frightening with images that will be imprinted in your head for the weeks to come. See this film, I can honestly say that you won't be sorry.
