    Wolf Creek 2 review



    A bit of background first - the first time I saw Wolf Creek 9 years ago, it had me on edge with its realism and brutal horror. The atmosphere was perfect.. a very underrated film. I was excited for the sequel but I heard they took a more comedy/action route..

    ..Well I can say that, the brutal unrelenting terror is still there in spades, even more so than the first one. The difference is, it doesn't spend as much time with the victims. It's pretty much a chase movie instead of the slow buildup of dread. I was fine with that because you couldn't really repeat what the original did.

    Instead you get more Mick Taylor and more gore/kills.. some really vile stuff. The Duel/car chase scenes are pretty good but there is an extended torture scene that is just awesome. Mix that in with a bit of Aussie dry humour (I chuckled at a few scenes).

    And don't expect a cliche ending.

    It met my expectations.. probably still prefer the original but this was a very worthy sequel imo.

    7/10

    Looks like a good one. Wow has it really been 9 years since the first one released?

    I liked it a bit better than the first in terms of pacing, but felt it dragged a bit in the final act. Gore and violence was pretty top notch though

    Was pretty surprised how much I liked this one since I wasn't a real big fan of the first one. I will say though, the ending seem to drag on a bit. That's my only problem with it.

    After watching the first I still wonder if that one served a purpose. It was boring and seemed to only have characters simply to put them in harms way or fodder for some bloodshed. Movies that don't bother to even remotely have interest in the characters makes me have no interest in the movie.

    Sounds like this one is even worse in regards to that. I will just YouTube the killings if I even become interested in that regard. No way I'm spending money for this dreck.

    The purpose was to give you a back-to-basics horror experience like the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

    If that's not your cup of tea, maybe you should stick with cheesy slasher or monster movies like the Godzilla remake.

    If you are referring to me A) They failed. B) Where do I come off as liking cheesy slasher movies? C) How does Godzilla factor in to this? Especially since I thought it was merely OK.

    Sorry if my opinion on a film you (shockingly) actually like doesn't sit well with you.

    "Ok" doesn't cut it. Either it's good or bad. But some people prefer to play it safe. I understand.

    Wolf Creek had the balls to do something a little bit different.

    You're trolling me.. you know what I meant.. this is about kicking the viewer where it hurts.. like Martyrs or TCM.. ballsy horror films we rarely get aside from torture porn.

    That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. OK is a perfectly fine answer. Why on earth would I play it safe with telling you what I thought of Godzilla? You know absolutely nothing about me, I speak my mind...especially to some random dude who has a problem with me not liking a mediocre (at best) movie that he does.

    Ever hear the term "On the fence."? Translated that basically means OK, neither good or bad...perhaps from being undecided. Unless you have heard that before and just thought that is why some people walk a bit funny.
