Wolf Creek 2

Decent Sequel.
Strong opening scene.
Mid-section is a homage to Spielberg's Duel!

Strange quiz show finale.
The recitation of ballads includes a Rolf Harris classic.

I'm a dual citizen (Brit & Aussie) with divided loyalties. The relentless pommy-bashing script can upset me more than the torture porn.

I used to live in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, and would occasionally bump into actor John Jarratt and his then wife Noni Hazelhurst.
They presented a popular tv show Better Homes & Gardens.
Jarratt's transformation from affable ocker to murderous screen villain is a miraculous achievement.

By the way, the Wolf Creek story is fictional and is not based on real events.

This was great. It was kind of like moving from Alien to Aliens - a tense creepy original, replaced by a bigger all action sequel ! The pop-quiz scene seemed a bit out of place but also produced one of my favourite lines of the weekend: "Who is Australia's most famous ever cricketer?...and don't say Shane f**king Warne !"
