Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: An unusually crisp and boldly shot Texas Chainsaw Massacre knockoff.
Rotten: There's no substitute for bad taste. And this one has it double-barreled, both in the timing of its release and as a movie, one said to be loosely based on fact.
Rotten: An initially promising horror film that turns exploitive, Wolf Creek fails to deliver the requisite payoff considering its leisurely pace.
Fresh: This is some horror flick.
Head on a Stick
One of the best horror movies of the 2000 era.
SICKEST HORROR MOVIE EVA!!!! BUT AWESOME
This movie goes from 0 to 100 soo quickly. Watched this at the cinemas in Australia and its the first horror movie that made me throw up in the cinema - so embarrassing. Watch it with caution, particularly the bit where he stabs the chick in the spine with a knife and you hear it crack and break - grouse stuff!!!
Horrid. Not a horror movie.
For those of you who prefer legitimate horror movies, along the lines of "The Shining" or "The Haunting" or movies such as that, don't bother renting this one. This is the typical slasher movie, where sex-crazed teenagers go to some remote location and end up being picked off one-by-one by some killer. This, along with similar movies like "Hostel" and "Saw" should not even be in the "horror" genre, because they are cheaply-made budget blockbusters that rely on shocking images in place of genuinely scary situations, and use the same premise that has been used since the Friday the 13th/Halloween movies that has been overdone beyond death by every no-name director who publishes a work of utter trash just to get their name on something.
If you want to see a horror movie that will really unnerve you (to the point where you will refuse to leave the lights off for days afterward), look up something else, like The Haunting, The Shining, movies like that. But if you're a fan of watching dumb teenagers get sliced up, watching a movie that insists on following the same dead pattern that has been used in every half-***ed pile of dung that a half-wit director dares call "horror" since the seventies, or knowing within the first five minutes how the movie will end, by all means, waste your four dollars renting this garbage.
