Description: It was supposed to be the vacation of a lifetime in the Australian Outback -- full of fun, sun and adventure. But, what happened to a trio of 20-something backpackers took a wrenching detour into the depths of unrelenting terror. Based on true events, "Wolf Creek" is the haunting story of their unthinkable ordeal -- a mounting white-knuckle nightmare so real it was destined to become horror legend. "Wolf Creek" is a startlingly intense motion picture experience of rapidly escalating dread and suspense. The chillingly believable events begin as freewheeling, college-aged pals Liz, Kristy and Ben head out for a holiday hike in stunning Wolf Creek National Park to see its mysterious meteor crater. When they return, their car won't start. Trapped in the vast emptiness of the wilderness -- all they can do is wait for rescue. Luckily, as night falls, along comes colorful local bushman Mick and his massive truck, offering a tow to safety. But, as the sun comes up the next morning, it becomes shockingly apparent that Mick has no intention of fixing their car or letting them leave the Outback...ever again.
