Back in early 2005 a captivating horror film called Wolf Creek came out of Australia and shocked the crowds at Sundance and Cannes before hitting American soil on Christmas Day; eleven years later Pop TV is hoping that the films maniacal villain Mick Taylor can once again scare us out of our skin.
John Jarratt, who played Mick in Wolf Creek 1 & 2, returns to reprise his role for the 6-part series. About the show, Jarratt reported to DigtalSpy back in August that, “there’s wonderful intensity in the entire thing. There are wonderful cliffhangers and great little red herrings going right through till the climax in the sixth episode, which is very exciting and horrifying and bleak.”
Wolf Creek premiers on Pop TV this Friday, October 14th at 10pm EST. Pop TV provided the below synopsis and clip for our viewing pleasure. Enjoy!
The story of WOLF CREEK begins when an American family is on holiday in Northern Australia and becomes the unsuspecting prey of Mick Taylor, a sadistic serial killer who hunts and kills tourists in the Outback. The sole survivor is Eve Thorogood, a college student, who vows to bring the killer to justice or die in the attempt. The story of WOLF CREEK reveals her complex and extraordinary journey, traveling every step of the way as she evolves from child to adult, from prey to predator. But can she triumph over Mick Taylor, evil incarnate?
