The Wolf Creek movies are definitely manly movies. Not to all, like Roger Ebert, who said of the first movie I wanted to walk out of the theater and keep on walking. But if you’ve got a sense for black humour and don’t mind a bit of political incorrect stuff (the central character murdered some Germans in the outback in the last movie after denouncing them as ‘foreign bastards’), then Wolf Creek is good stuff.
So out of the blue comes a new addition to the series, now a mini-series from ‘Stan’.
Ten years since the release of the hugely successful feature film Wolf Creek, creator Greg McLean and star John Jarratt return to give audiences a new take on the legend of Mick Taylor.
“‘Wolf Creek,’ a six-part drama series, is a psychological thriller set in the world that fans of the films will recognize – but this time things are different. At first the pattern is familiar: Mick Taylor targets an American tourist family to terrorise and destroy. But the tables are turned when 19-year-old Eve survives the massacre and starts to rebuild her shattered existence by embarking on a mission of revenge.
It’s coming mid-2016. Also, don’t forget to check out ManlyMovie’s interview with leading star John Jarratt, where we were first to speak about his project.
