The Original "Hitcher" meets the original Wolf Creek, and nearly does them both justice.

John Jarratt is AWESOME. Rare that these slashers can act, and that aspect just adds a ton to this now series. Ryan Corr does an admirable job as well.

This sequel lacks a bit of the style and realism of the first film - kind-of going the torture porn route with more blood and gore, but the overall production is well above the average for the genre, and while I'm a fan of the genre, I still think that in the whole scheme of things this is a pretty good movie. Quite literally mind-blowing, if not truly mind-blowing stuff.

The most important thing here is that it didn't disappoint the way that so many of these do, and Jarratt really deserves the credit for that.

The 'torture-porn' thing might initially be seen as a cop-out, but they did return the bar to it's 80's glory in that respect. The gore is done right with make-up, latex, etc, and a clear lack of cgi. Tom Savini would be proud.

Looking forward to a long, happy series of these with Jarratt in tow. As slightly above average as this is, it's still better than just about every slasher flick this side of the pond(s) over the last 3-4 years save maybe "Maniac".

The similarities to the original "The Hitcher" come because Jarratt(Mick) seems to be 'on the road' for most of the movie.

Overall, this definitely worked for me. Recommended for fans of the genre, but because of the torture-porn aspect, not recommended for anyone else.

Brutal. At times funny. Good production values. This might be the only decent horror selection in that red machine.. The aussies have turned into the new horror kings... lord knows we can't get it right anymore. If I made a list of my top 10 horror flicks of the last decade - they'd have at least half of them - Korea would have a couple - we'd have 2 or three.

Negatives.. In the first film one could argue that the set-up took too long. Here, it might not have taken long enough.

Also, there's a completely meaningless and unnecessary scene involving kangaroos that really just doesn't fit into the movie at all. Needed to be left on the editing floor.

69/100 You'll like this if you liked: Wolf Creek(a touch better), THe Hitcher(orig/better), The Collector(about even or just below), or The Hills Have Eyes(remake/even or just barely below).

I am a pig shooter......

Mick Taylor's back, and he's bought another 'based on a true story with him'. Well it says based, probably the truth is that a lot of people go missing, and are never seen again, and on the odd occasion someone gets questioned about it so the makers can do pretty much what they want with the rest of the story.

Taylor this time is more Hands on with the film, appearing right from the beginning, which is a mix of The Hitcher (the eighties version), and of course, Hostel.

It's more of the same. We start with a very gory prologue involving some cops who get their just desserts, and then Taylor stalks two German travellers, one whom gets away, and bumps into a British tourist, who foolishly gives them a lift (one thing I've learned from this is to never, ever stop for someone who appears extremely distressed, because chances are, they are being chased by a serial killer)' and inadvertently becomes Micks next prey.

Then from there on in, its a cat and mouse movie, chase after chase, with everyone coming into contact with the Brit or Taylor, being killed in weird and wonderful ways.

The realism of the first movie is gone, that was all about the sense of dread in an unknown place, this is going for the Boogyman route, emulating Freddy, Jason et al on several occasion.

Replacing seriousness are flying Kangaroos (almost), The Mick Taylor singalong, and a very extended quiz show for sub finale.

Sounds crass I know, but its a lot of fun, kill keeping on the right side of horror, and turning it into parody. Ignore the fact that it's 'based on a true story' (apparently one of the characters is in a mental health hospital somewhere in the UK), and enjoy it for the throwback shlockfest that it is.

Miles better than Neighbours....

"Torture Porn" with an erratic but funny John Jarrett

If you appreciate the modern gore-fest material that throughout the past 10 years or so has erupted into a genre I like to appropriately refer to as "torture porn", you will enjoy the antics of this extreme Australian indie horror sequel in the vain of "Hostel" and "Wrong Turn". I know what you're thinking. How many times can they reproduce the same nonsense, and your assumptions are correct. Innocent hikers and tourists end up in the wrong areas in the wrong situations and end up victims of some cannibal wacko who wants to ruin their weekend complete with sawed off appendages and excruciating scenes of mutilation and terror. Horror has come along way since "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", but films like these seem to push towards exceeding the limit, if there is one in our desensitized generation.

In this warped film you will observe a brilliantly brutal display of anti-authority abuse like never before in the opening sequence, which earns this flick a six point review instantly. John Jarrett's performance is annoying, appalling, but hilarious at the same time. This is nothing like the first "Wolf Creek" that is generally "Crocodile Dundee" meets Ted Bundy. This combines a really twisted sense of humor in Jarrett's performance with a political ideology associated with the deep Australian outback's retaliation against the historical British prison colony of the late 1700's. It seems that Jarrett's character is holding a racist grudge against anyone "foreign", especially of English or German descent who wanders into his territory and challenges his views of torturing women and hacking up helpless tourists.

This sickeningly blends every demented aspect of the serial killer-just-for-fun mentality just to please audiences of "shock value" cinema, but pulls it off with twisted comic relief (for instance that kangaroo/truck scene). No one escapes Jarrett's world, where his victim's never get out alive, and the cinematic capture of the desert-like outback contains a feel of constant entrapment. John Jarrett's rant can become a chore to sit through towards the end, and a Q/A torture scene drags on a tad too long, but fans of this twisted genre can kick back, throw a shrimp on the barbie and get their money's worth for sure.
