When Greg Mclean’s debut feature film Wolf Creek gushed into cinemas back in 2005, it certainly rattled its fair share of nerves. The bleak and uncompromising sense of dread it exuded, along with its vicious mean streak meant it was solidified as a truly effective and memorable genre outing. It’s realistic approach allowed it stand apart from the weaker horror films doing the rounds at the time, plus it put John Jarratt’s portrayal of serial killer Mick Taylor on the map as a genuinely frightening movie maniac.
And after repeated attempts at trying to get a sequel off the ground, it looks as though Wolf Creek 2 may finally be heading our way.
During the weekend at the Melbourne International Film Festival, Screen Australia CEO Ruth Harley announced that a sequel was indeed set to be financed. Harley went on to state that the location of the announcement was relevant to the new “compelling slate of screen productions.”
He went on to confirm that; Three of the new features hail from Victoria, including Greg Mclean’s film Wolf Creek 2, which will once again bring horror, action and suspense to the outback.
I can tell you right now that I’m definitely down for a sequel. As long as Mclean approaches it in a slightly different fashion to ensure things stay fresh I feel it could yield promising results. Just please don’t turn Wolf Creek into a Friday The 13th style franchise that never ends…
So what do you think? Would you watch a Wolf Creek 2? Did you even enjoy the original?
