Trailer For Wolf Creek 2 Arrives

Crazy Mick Taylor keeps on truckin'

The long-developing Wolf Creek 2, Greg Mclean's sequel to his infamous 2005 original, finally went before the cameras this year. John Jarratt is, at long last, back as the cackling Outback serial killer Mick Taylor. We've seen some stills and a brief Australian TV report, and now here is the first proper trailer, reminding us that in life, it's not what path you choose, it's whose path you cross...

Wolf Creek 2 sets up another group of unwitting young travellers, but the response from those who've seen it suggests a slightly bigger scale this time. We're out of the Outback and onto the highway, with at least one major sequence that's drawing comparisons to Duel. There are chunks of that in the clip, including what looks like the punchline to the whole sequence. Hopefully it's not too much of a spoiler.

Mick's also as chatty as ever, although he seems to have picked up a nationalist doctrine that we don't remember from first time out. There's still the matey advice and homespun wisdom among the ranting though - "First rule of the outback: you never, ever stop!" - and of course, there's that laugh...

Jarratt's co-stars / victims this time include Ryan Corr and Shannon Aslyn. Wolf Creek 2 is out in Australia and Italy in February, with the rest of the world still awaiting its release dates.
