Venice Film Review: ‘Wolf Creek 2’

Another excerpt from Guy Lodge’s Variety review of Wolf Creek 2:

Production values are uniformly top-notch, reaping the benefits of what appears to be a considerably expanded budget: McLean can now afford 18-wheeler trucks barreling down hillsides in his chase sequences, and isn’t afraid to use them. Toby Oliver’s slick widescreen lensing delights in the warm coloring of Outback brushwood and human entrails alike, while Johnny Klimek’s sparsely thrumming score sits in stark contrast to music supervisor Gary Seeger’s gleefully cheesy soundtrack choices: Even the first “Wolf Creek” wouldn’t have dared unite killer and victim in an impromptu sing along of Rolf Harris’s “Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport.”

Read the Venice Film Festival review and find out what Mick’s motivation for all the rape, torture, and killing is–not what you’d think. Good to know, huh? Not big on torture-porn or dead wallabies at the moment, so we’re still on the fence about this one.

Review: 100 Bloody Acres is a blood soaked blast

THEY FIND YA… THEY GRIND YA! “A Blood soaked blast”! With that tagline, that review headline, and the title 100 Bloody Acres– we are SOLD! We wish we could offer opinions on the horror-comedy (or, hey, we dunno, our own review) but since we haven’t been able to find the flick to watch it(all our research showed it was available on VOD/iTunes, but no dice as of this writing), here’s a great review by Ryan from Rhino’s Horror. Check out the attached trailer, and for once, go ahead and click on the ‘pop-ups’ (the ones you probably usually disable automatically when you watch anything on You Tube) that flash up during the trailer and say to check out their ‘products’ for some fun viral marketing.

Written and directed by Cameron and Colin Cairnes, 100 Bloody Acres is a blood splattered blast that seamlessly blends comedy into the horror genre. This marks their first feature film together and it follows two brothers, Reg and Lindsay Morgan, who are struggling to keep their organic blood and bone fertilizer business in motion. Their secret “recipe” for success was a huge boom to business, but lately supply has been gravely low. When Reg stumbles upon 3 travelers stranded on the side of the road, he comes up with a ridiculous solution to their problem, and a way of finally gaining the respect of his big brother.
