When it comes to movie villains, Australia has a top contender: John Jarratt. Jarratt made a name for himself in the 2005 horror film Wolf Creek. Based (loosely) on actual events, Wolf Creek struck a chord with Aussies and movie goers all over the world.
Jarratt's character, Mick Taylor, was inspired by Ivan Milat who committed a series of grisly killings that came to be known as "The Backpack Murders."
Now Jarratt reprises his role in the sequel, Wolf Creek 2. It is slotted for an American release on May 16th.
In the new film we find a young German couple backpacking in the wilds of the Australian Outback. Their vacation in paradise is cut short when the come across psychopathic pig-shooter Mick Taylor.
In a thrilling game of cat and mouse, Taylor relentlessly stalks his prey through the desolate barren Outback. Their struggle for survival seems utterly hopeless. When an unsuspecting motorist attempts to help one of Taylor's victims, he too becomes part of the gruesome game.
It's killer vs captive in a battle of brutality and wits in one of the most imaginative torture scenes ever filmed.
The film has moments of pure natural beauty interspersed with sheer brutality. And oh, that laugh, that psychotic unmistakable laugh!
John Jarratt joins the Haunted Housewife for what is sure to be an electrifying interview on May 13th at 10pmE.
