Wolf Creek: Season One – DVD Review

The continent of Australia. Home to some of the world’s deadliest snakes, spiders, and sea creatures, and one very determined serial killer: Mick Taylor. He’s a man with no conscience. A man who kills for pleasure. A man who may have finally met his match in the new series, Wolf Creek. It’s time for Mick’s bad deeds to finally get the punishment they deserve.

A follow-up to the 2005 and 2013 films, Wolf Creek: Season One delivers a gory and suspenseful story of revenge and payback as one of the survivors of Mick Taylor’s lunatic killing sprees decides to hunt down and killer the killer. When her family is brutally killed by Mick during a vacation to the Australian Outback, Eve (Lucy Fry) escapes with a gunshot wound and nothing left to live for but her new desire to take down Australia’s most infamous serial killer. Will her efforts be in vain, or will she succeed at preventing others from falling victim to his violence?

I vividly remember the first Wolf Creek film, specifically a scene where Mick Taylor severs the spinal cord of one of his victims. The image still resonates in my head; from the sound effects to the looks on the faces of both Mick and his victim when her spine is cut clean through (ugh!).

I was happy to see that they were able to cast John Jarratt once again in the titular role of serial killer Mick Taylor. It lends an air of authenticity to the series. I feel if they had had to recast the role that it would not have had the same impact as it does, especially since a mask or makeup aren’t a key aspect of the character.

Wolf Creek: Season One delivers the goods and will keep you on the edge of your seat until the final moments of the finale. It’s exciting and fun to see what happens when the tables are turned and the one who has been tormenting, torturing, and slaughtering tourists in Australia may have finally met the one surviving victim willing to go toe to toe with him and take him out at any cost.

Wolf Creek: Season One includes a number of great featurettes that include: Cinema to Series: The Legacy of Wolf Creek; Making a Television Series; Meet the Stars; Discovering the Outback; a Visual Effect Featurette; and Meet the Supporting Cast.

I really enjoyed Wolf Creek: Season One. If you enjoyed the movies, or are a fan of smart horror, you’re sure to enjoy it, too!

Wolf Creek: Season One is available now on DVD!

Fallout 3 Refused Classification in Australia!

Brotherhood of Steel

Bethesda’s take on the glorious Fallout series, Fallout 3 has been refused classification in Australia! The news has been confirmed by the guys at Internode, the consequences of which are that the game is effectively banned in the land of kangaroos.

Why the banning has taken place is currently unknown, although a pretty good guess will be violence. Screenshots of the game released over the months have pointed to some pretty messy violence (much like the first two games). The game is pretty violent and bloody as it is, but the famed “Bloody Mess” perk in the game makes it bloodier and messier. Bethesda had confirmed recently that it will be returning. Perhaps that is reason for refusing classification?

Sex is definitely played down in the game, as Bethesda had mentioned. The game will have mature themes, but not so much about sex as in Fallout 2. That pretty much leaves violence in…

The game will most probably be sent in for a re-evaluation after some modifications. Fallout 3 is just too big a property to not be released in Australia. Besides, we want Zero Punctuation to be review it!
