The Australian outback is a favoured tourist attraction, especially for young backpackers from Europe. But is can also be a place of extreme danger as some young travellers discover to their abject horror in this highly anticipated sequel unveiled earlier this year at FrightFest Glasgow. For that gravel-voiced, sneering maniac Mick Taylor is back with a few more days to kill! Bolder, gorier and placed on a far bigger canvas than the original Ozploitation classic, star John Jarratt and director Greg McLean return with an even more twisted shocker that maintains the original’s savagery and nerve-jangling tension, while dazzling further with a spectacular and surprising use of Down Under landscapes and creatures. Two arrogant cops, two unwitting German backpackers and a Good Samaritan British tourist become the prey for the crazed pig-shooting psycho as the outback is drenched in rivers of blood and his underground lair reveals even sicker secrets.
