movie 'Wolf Creek"

Anyone seen It? I watched it last night and although It was kind of boring it did get going mid way. Don't believe the movie hype that this Is based on a true story as It's not. Funny I've been down the Tanami track a 100 times and never saw this guy. Oh well watch it its fun. :gun








Spoiler:
Wolf Creek is a 2005 Australian horror film, written, produced and directed by Greg McLean and starring Cassandra Magrath, Kestie Morassi, John Jarratt and Nathan Phillips. It was released in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland on 16 September 2005, on 3 November 2005 in Australia (apart from the Northern Territory), and on 25 December 2005 in the United States.
Tagline: 30,000 are reported missing in Australia every year. 90% are found within a month. Some are never seen again.




Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.
Two British tourists, Liz Hunter (Magrath) and Kristy Earl (Morassi) meet with an Australian man, Ben Mitchell (Phillips), with whom they decide to spend their holiday. The young trio plans to drive to Wolf Creek, a large crater formed by a 50,000-ton meteorite, and explore the area.
Upon returning to their car after hiking down to the crater, they realise that the engine has stopped working and they are stranded miles from civilisation. Later that night, the group is relieved to spot a vehicle approaching, driven by a "Crocodile Dundee"-like man named Mick Taylor (Jarratt), who is willing to help with their car troubles. He offers to tow them to his camp and to fix their car for free. Since the travellers are low on money, they agree.
Mick drives them a great distance to his camp, an abandoned mining site; they start to become suspicious of him but decide to trust him. At the camp he tells them stories of his former jobs (he currently makes a living as a hunter of wild boars) and entertains the group into a false sense of security. He offers them water drugged with an unknown substance that causes them to lose consciousness.
Liz awakens to find herself tied up in a shed. She manages to escape and discovers Mick torturing Kristy. She shoots Mick with one of his own guns and escapes from the camp with Kristy in one of Mick's vehicles. However, Liz's shot has not killed Mick and he follows the pair. They fake a car crash and creep back to Mick's camp with the intention of obtaining another vehicle; Liz leaves the hysterical Kristy outside the gates of the camp, telling Kristy to escape on foot if she does not return in a short time.
Liz enters a garage and discovers Mick's large stock of cars; as well as an organised array of travellerís possessions, including video cameras. Liz watches a film from a camera and is horrified to see Mick "rescuing" other stranded travellers at Wolf Creek, in almost identical circumstances as what happened to Kristy, Ben and herself. All of this suggests Mick has tricked many others using a similar ruse to that practiced on the trio. Mick ambushes her in the garage, severs some of her fingers, severs her lower spine with a knife and, implicitly, tortures her to reveal the location of Kristy. Liz does not reappear in the film.
Kristy flees the camp area on foot and reaches a road where a motorist stops to give her aid. Mick, appearing to be an expert marksman, shoots the motorist dead from a long distance. Kristy attempts to escape in the motorist's car but Mick soon catches up with her and runs her off the road. He then fires his rifle into her torso and moves closer to finish her off with a shot to the head before putting her body in the trunk of his vehicle and setting fire to the evidence left behind.
Ben awakens, nailed to a crossbeam, in an abandoned mine with savage dogs and decaying crucified corpses. After painfully extracting himself from his bonds he too escapes and reaches a road where he is rescued by motorists and taken to safety. The final scene of the film reports, in mockumentary style, that Mick was never brought to justice; instead, Ben was accused of the murder of the two girls, but acquitted.




Wolf Creek was marketed as being "based on true events" in the same way that The Texas Chainsaw Massacre was. Despite this claim, the movie is fictitious; the film's director and writer has stated that Wolf Creek is not based on any single event.[1] The producers have not disclosed which incidents (if any) inspired the film.
Some media sources, including the back of the North American DVD release, have speculated that it may have been based on the backpacker murders of 1989-92, or (not on the DVD case) the Peter Falconio disappearance of 2001, and/or the 1992-99 Snowtown murders. The similarities of the film with the Falconio case led the defence team of the man charged (later convicted) with his murder, Bradley John Murdoch, to obtain a court order preventing Wolf Creek's release in the Northern Territory during the trial. (The film was released there in January 2006.) There have been comparisons made between Taylor and real-life serial killer Ivan Milat, who also preyed upon backpackers in regional New South Wales.
Wolf Creek is set in a real location; however the actual meteorite crater location is called "Wolfe Creek", and is located in northern Western Australia. It is believed to be the second largest meteorite crater in the world. The movie was almost entirely filmed in South Australia, so most of the shots in the movie at "Wolf Creek" are not located at the real "Wolfe Creek". The aerial shots of the crater in the movie show the genuine Wolfe Creek crater.

Acclaimed film director/writer Quentin Tarantino called it the scariest film he had ever seen.

Spoiler:
One thing about that girl in the move that decides to go back to the camp and get another car. I was thinking no way that has to be the dumbest move ever, much safer to hide out in the bush and make your way to the road. But then also when she shoots him and starts hitting him on the back with the rifle...lol If she would have instead bashed him in the head with that thing he would be dead..end of movie Nobody can be that dumb, but adds to the drama :corn
