Wolf Creek

Wolf Creek is a 2005 Australian horror film written, co-produced, and directed by Greg McLean, and starring John Jarratt. The story revolves around three backpackers who find themselves held captive and subsequently hunted by a man in the Australian outback. The film was ambiguously marketed as being "based on true events"; the plot bore elements similar to the real-life incidents of tourists in Australia by Ivan Milat in the 1990s and by Bradley Murdoch in 2001. Wolf Creek premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2005, and premiered in Australia in March 2005 in Adelaide. ... more on Wikipedia
