It was supposed to be the vacation of a lifetime in the Australian Outback – full of fun, sun and adventure. But what happened to a trio of twenty-something backpackers took a wrenching detour into the depths of unrelenting terror. Kristy, Ben and Liz set out to hike through the scenic Wolf Creek National Park in the Australian Outback. The trouble begins when they get back only to find that their car won't start. When they decide to pass the night in the car, a local friendly man, the hillbilly Mick Taylor, stops his truck, offers to help the trio, and finds that they need to replace the coil. He proposes to tow them to his camp, where he could fix the car. When they accept the proposal, their dreamy vacation turns into a scary nightmare. Taking the always essential element of "Based on a true story" from "Blair Witch," "Wolf Creek" manages to be horrifying because events like it could actually happen. It is said that the murder methods portrayed are similar to those employed by Backpacker Murderer Ivan Milat during the early 1990s.
