Greg Mclean’s return to horror franchise, featuring brutal serial killer Mick Taylor, has been picked up by Image Entertainment at this year’s American Film Market. “Wolf Creek 2” returns to that all out fear fest down under where backpackers are big game for one twisted hardcore killer. “Wolf Creek 2” sees Mclean’s return to directors chair as well as bringing back John Jarrett as the iconic killer. The film also stars Ryan Corr, Shannon Ashlyn and Phillipe Klaus. “Wolf Creek” was the film that made me straighten up and take Australia’s horror community dead serious. Part 2 is set for a 2014 release date of February 14th in Australia and trust-I have my radar set to mark the official U.S. date down on my calendar.
Lured by the promise of an Australian holiday, backpackers Rutger, Katarina, and Paul visit the notorious Wolf Creek Crater. Their dream Outback adventure soon becomes a horrific reality when they encounter the site’s most infamous local, the last man any traveler to the region ever wants to meet; Mick Taylor (John Jarratt). As the backpackers flee, Mick pursues them on an epic white knuckled rampage across hostile wasteland. Only one will remain to be dragged back to his lair to witness the true magnitude of his monstrosity. And if the last man standing is to have any hope of surviving where no one else has survived before, he’ll have to use every ounce of cunning to outwit the man behind the monster and become every bit as ruthless as the monster inside the man.
