Mick Taylor (John Jarratt): “I shoot pests: Pigs, donkeys, camels… tourists…”
Wolf Creek is the latest horror film franchise getting a TV series treatment; the exemplar of “Ozsploitation” will be premier on May 12th as a 6-part series on the Australian streaming service Stan. Like the films Wolf Creek and Wolf Creek 2, director Greg McLean is helming the series, described as a both a “drama” and a “psychological thriller.” Venture partners Nine and Fairfax Media claim the series is scarier than the films!
The trailer below features American actress Eve Thorogood as Lucy Fry, the lone survivor of a slaughter that wiped out her entire family. McLean promises to delve into Mick Taylor’s backstory and hints that the demon of the Outback may have finally met his match! Of Thorogood’s role, he states: “Having a female point of view is really interesting because it flips that whole slasher thing on its head because it’s not about that. It’s actually about her exploring a character and trying to understand the motivation for a character – it’s much more character-focused as a raw piece of storytelling.”
