Reviews [click links to read more]:

“The festering sense of malice that made Wolf Creek so unsettling has almost completely disappeared, but the sequel at least abides by the rules of the genre. It’s louder, faster and more entertaining. The body count is bigger; the death scenes more elaborate.” Luke Buckmaster, The Guardian

“Ultimately, Wolf Creek 2 doesn’t hold a candle to the first film and so fails its most compelling character. Mick is a villain who is at once repulsive and riveting. I had been excited to see where else his story might go, but was frustrated to find that most of this journey is a retread, from the victims to the method of violence, to the dissatisfying tie-in to its “true events” inspiration.” Kristy Plutchko, CinemaBlend

“The key difference between these two films is Wolf Creek 2‘s tone is superficially lighter. In the last film, Mick gutted, stabbed, shot, and cursed out his victims. In this one, he tells bad jokes after he kills strangers, establishing him as the down under answer to Freddy Krueger.” Simon Abrams, RogerEbert.com

“But for all the appeal of the visuals and the entertaining sadism of the main character, Wolf Creek 2 still sadly comes up empty, mean-spirited, and even a little morally irresponsible. It’s a depiction of bloody horror without function, purpose, or even general dramatic thrust. The goal of the movie is not to explore fear or tell a story, but make you squirm in your seat.” Witney Seibold, Nerdist
