The deeply disturbed outback pig hunter Mick Taylor is back and bloodthirstier than ever. In this brutal and explicit sequel, he relentlessly pursues various unfortunate people through the enormous and inescapable Wolf Creek crater region.

I must admit I personally wasn’t that much impressed by the original ‘Wolf Creek’, released in 2005 and also directed by the young Australian horror prodigy Greg Mclean. Admittedly it benefited from a raw and gritty atmosphere as well as a couple brutal gore-highlights, but overall it was a mundane and unoriginal hillbilly slasher that too easily exploited the “based on a true story” tagline. Maybe I became a lot more tolerable over the years or I was just in a very optimistic mood today, but I immensely enjoyed the sequel and wholeheartedly reward it with a much more favorable rating than the original.

Part two is a prototypic kind of sequel, except for the fact that it took a relatively long time before it was made, meaning the violence and bloodshed are more plentiful, the sadist killer becomes the real star and gets a lot more screen time and there’s a more room for – in this case pitch black – humorous situations. The deeply disturbed outback pig hunter Mick Taylor (John Jarratt) is back and he still joyously and carelessly massacres backpacking tourists without running even a remote risk of getting caught by the Australian authorities. He first targets a young German couple, but then the girl manages to escape and is picked up by a traveling British student named Paul Hammersmith (Ryan Corr). Since Paul is now responsible for Mick missing out on a tasty piece of female candy, he relentlessly pursues the boy through the enormous and inescapable Wolf Creek crater region.

Mclean righteously chose for a straightforward and fast-paced horror spectacle this time and I assume the vast majority of his fans will be grateful for this. ‘Wolf Creek 2′ is extremely violent and even sickening – squeamish audiences beware – but still contains more suspense and atmosphere than any other backwoods slasher of its type, thanks to the uncanny outback setting and the evil charisma of the protagonist. Mick Taylor remained a fairly mysterious killer in the original, but now he proudly profiles himself as a patriotic and madly racist Aussie bastard! The special effects and make-up are top quality and the film owes a great deal of its shocking impact to the unclassifiable performance of John Jarrett. He’s the Great Wild Aussie Outback personified! With regards to the aforementioned black humor, keep an eye open for the truly twisted sequence with the crossing kangaroos!
