One film that you might not have guessed played the Venice Film Festival earlier this is Greg McLean's "Wolf Creek 2." Yes, the sorta cult hit horror flick from 2004 has returned nearly a decade later with a sequel, and once again, it looks like things get pretty nasty in the Australian outback.

Wolf Creek 2

One film that you might not have guessed played the Venice Film Festival earlier this is Greg McLean's "Wolf Creek 2." Yes, the sorta cult hit horror flick from 2004 has returned nearly a decade later with a sequel, and once again, it looks like things get pretty nasty in the Australian outback.

The first trailer has arrived and John Jarratt is back as Mick Taylor who will once again bring some scares to the great wide open. So why are they doing this again? Well, for the simple reason that "Wolf Creek" is the highest grossing R-rated film of all time in its native Australia. Frankly, it's more shocking it didn't happen sooner. Here's the official synopsis:

The Australian outback is a lonely, isolated place—the perfect playground for a sadistic serial killer with a penchant for bloodthirsty sport. A red wasteland, the stifling, oppressive heat isn’t the only menace that should be feared. Bored with the so-called commercial tourism of the city, young and idealistic backpackers Rutger and Katarina yearn to explore the “real” Australia and travel to the hauntingly beautiful but desolate Wolf Creek National Park. Far from civilization, the breathtaking vistas and vast open spaces belie a danger lurking in the shadows. Psychopathic pigshooter Mick Taylor is the last man any outback traveler wants to meet and now his irreverent attitude towards human life has escalated to a sadistic new level. Wolf Creek 2 will have your pulse racing. Paralyzed with fear, we all bear witness as Mick offers no mercy to his victims.

"Wolf Creek 2" opens in Australia on February 20th. No domestic distributor or date yet. [The Wrap]
