I am so excited for this movie! Come February 20th I’ll be in the cinema getting my chill and thrill on with John Jarratt’s return as Australian serial killer, Mick Taylor. Read on for the details straight from the Venice Film Festival.
Industry bible Variety labelled the Australian outback slasher as a “robustly crafted pic” that was “quite a ride” while The Hollywood Reporter added that it included a “Spielbergian dual”.
John Jarratt returns to the role that made him an iconic horror movie villain: Mick Taylor, the backpacker slaying serial killer.
Shot in Victoria earlier this year, Jarratt said audiences can expect “a lot more action” in the sequel to the Aussie horror hit.
“It’s more of a road film this time with a lot of chasing going on on everything from cars to horses,” he said.
“There’s also a chase that ends up back in a cave, his lair
“And of course, there’s plenty of blood and guts.”
Empire magazine’s Damon Wise said there were more “surprises” and “genuine attempts to portray the human cost of such vicious violence, plus a lot of exhilarating chases that could come straight from the 70s golden age of Ozploitation”.
Jarratt’s portrayal of villain Mick Taylor has seen “the character having acquired cult standing in the horror community” noted Variety, while newcomer Ryan Corr was praised by The Hollywood Reporter as being “smart and wonderful.”
The reviewers all tipped a Wolf Creek 3 to follow shortly.
