‘Wolf Creek’ A Show that fails in a lot of different areas
As a writer I get some pretty good perks. The chance to check out new shows happens to be one of them. When I was offered a review copy of Wolf Creek I knew nothing about it. Yet I decided to give this show a shot. Here is what I thought of the first season of this show.
You can read the plot for Wolf Creek here:
Mick Taylor (John Jarratt) returns to wreak havoc in the six part drama series, WOLF CREEK. Except this time things are different. This time the victim fights back. At first the pattern is familiar; Mick chooses an American family on vacation in northern Australia to terrorise and destroy, but that is merely the inciting incident in a much larger story. Seriously injured, 19-year-old Eve (Lucy Fry) survives the massacre of her parents and little brother, recovers and sets out to bring the killer to justice. Across the 6 episodes we chart her complex and extraordinary journey, travelling every step of the way with her as she evolves from child to adult, from prey to predator. But can she triumph over Mick Taylor, evil incarnate?”
I really didn’t enjoy Wolf Creek. It was boring, dull, slow and it was tough for me to stay interested in this show. There were a few good moments, but they were few and far between. It doesn’t really get good until the last episode, but by then it gets painfully predictable too. Yet it was kind of cool that they shot this show on location, and the visuals look pretty impressive. I am sure some people may like this show, but it definitely won’t be for everyone. If you want to learn more about Wolf Creek click on this website.
