Wolf Creek 2 (2014)

We head back into the outback with serial killer madman Mick Taylor. After the first installment, Mick has moved south towards a more populated area in which to find his victims. The dark, unsettling atmosphere of the original film isn't really present here and there is very little build up before the killing begins.

The first death of the film is ridiculously over the top and very unlikely. I don't to give too much away, but it involves a rifle shot that any army sniper would struggle to make. Mick inevitably has a run-in with some tourists again - German tourists this time. I almost felt glad the tourists were killed, they were truly stupid. They got a lift out into the he middle of nowhere with few supplies and then start shouting at each other and asking how they were going to get back...eventually Mick turns up and offers the couple a lift back into town, needless to say, they don't make it.

In a way the film reminded me of I Spit On Your Grave 2 - basically the same film set somewhere else. Fare enough, the killings are gory and the killer is his usual charismatic, funny self, but there's nothing original in the film; if it weren't for the 2 in the title, there wouldn't be any difference in the story compared with the first film. The film has with the same basic elements - two stupid tourists, a dungeon, and a madman. The ending is exactly the same as well.

The only difference in this film is that Mick begins stalking an Englishmen who witnessed the killing of the tourists, he toys with him (Hitcher style) in a game of cat and mouse.

*SPOILER ALERT* The films ends the same as the first, with a single survivor escaping. At the end of the film a caption come on saying the police didn't believe is story of a madman roaming the outback killing tourists, and they suspect he killed the tourists himself. The final scene shows Mick Taylor walking away in the dessert with his rifle over his shoulder.

Like many horror sequels of the last ten years, Wolf Creek 2 failed to live up to its predecessor's success. It's not a terrible film by any means, and is a refreshing change from all the found-footage films that are saturating the genre.
