WOLF CREEK 2 movie poster -- exclusive EW.com imageMick Taylor is back and as bloodthirsty as ever. This is definitely hardcore, with heads blown off by shotgun blasts, fingers crushed and severed by power drills, and a kangaroo massacre. Not to mention the naked dismemberment, the hunting knife beheading, and the old lady whose face is blown away. But besides the gory stuff, the movie takes off when John Jarrett shows his genius for slowly turning “genial” into “sociopath”. There’s an extended scene with his main prey where the torture is psychological — until it turns into screams and bone crushings– with the threat of violence turned up and down for maximum tension. (You’re almost relieved when the bloodletting finally begins.) And the ending seems just right — for WOLF CREEK 3! — Jeff Schultz
