Wolf Creek 2 : Reviewed

So the Mythical Mick Taylor is back, As with the 1st Wolf Creek this is base upon another true story of missing backpackers.And this time the gore factor is significantly cranked up .
The film opens with two extremely bored looking traffic cops in the vast outback just waiting for something to happen, Along comes good old Mick in his trusty pick up truck, They clock him going past at 97 kmph and hour and say to each other that he is just under the limit of 100 kmph but he doesn't know that so they decide to pull him over,Bad move. We see him pull his huge Crocodile Dundee style knife and place it on the passenger seat. He then exits the vehicle as asked, Told his was doing over 100 and issued with a ticket and told basically to fuck off and never come down this road again. They drive off laughing and calling him a fucking redneck,We then see in his van his hunting rifle with his sniper scope, Needless to say it doesn't end well for the policemen.
The story then focuses on a German couple backpacking their way across Australia, Waking down the road they think there luck has changed in the form of a lift but yes you've guessed it it's Mick in his truck, Lucky escape for them this time though as another truck comes along and scares Mick away, But he hasn't forgot about them. They then hitch a ride of an old lady and her sheep and are dropped of unfortunately for them at Wolf Creek. Then follows a few scenes of them skinny dipping Etc. And trying to in vain to get a lift back into town, The nights drawing in so they decide to camp in the National Park, Later that night they hear outside somebody pulling up outside the tent with headlights trained directly on the entrance, Guess who it is, yes it's Mick!

He tells them that they are breaking the law by camping and even more  trouble for them would be if a ranger found them and saw that they had started a fire, Being the kind hearted man Mick is he offers them a lift to the nearest town, The German chap obviously senses that something isn't quite right and tells his girlfriend to call the police at which point Mick flips and all hell breaks loose, He gets the guy up against the truck and rams his huge knife into his back leaving him for dead, His sights are now firmly set on the girl who he says that they will spend a good few months together.
Then he girl escapes and fortunately for her is picked up by a young English tourist who tries to work out what the hell is happening when in his rear view mirror appears psycho Mick heading for them at great speed and that's only about the 1st half hour!
I shan't go on with much more of the story as if you have yet to see it it will spoil it but i do have to say i did really enjoy Wolf Creek 2 probably even more than the 1st film.Whereas the 1st movie was pretty much another entry in to the so called "Torture Porn" Genre this one whether it was because the budget was bigger stays pretty much away from that label.
Mick Taylor yet again proves that he is a complete psycho and as i said the gore is pretty graphic and brilliantly done this time around. The Humor from Mick is as sick and as twisted as anything that Freddy Kruger came up with, so all in all one of the better horror movies of the year so far in my opinion, Give it a go it's safer than going backpacking in OZ!
