4 Violent Horror with a touch of classPaulWJM | 29/05/2011 | See all PaulWJM's reviews (12)Greg McLean's Wolf Creek, without wishing to give away too much, is a pretty accomplished piece of work detailing the (purportedly true) story of three 20-somethings heading out on a road trip of tourism and partying across the foreboding Australian outback, only to run into a situation of sheer terror along the way. It's a well constructed and very tense ride that will have you squirming in places, and clutching the chair in others. Thankfully the more gruesome side has some degree of restraint, unlike many of today's 'torture-porn' outings, but rest assured this is not for squeamish viewers.Shot on HD this Blu-ray is fundamentally a pixel-for-pixel representation of what was filmed - basically the darker scenes don't fair as well as they would have had they been shot on 35mm or higher spec digital cameras, but the lighter scenes and landscape photography is stunning and showcased well on Blu-ray - contrary to what one of the other reviewers here thought, there is much on this disc to use as demonstration material. McLean has a keen eye for a beautiful composition and this is used wisely as a contrasting device for the horrors to come.Audio has some clout, though only encoded as Dolby Digital 5.1 (albeit with a reasonable bitrate) - there's also a stereo option for those without surround equipment. You also get a commentary, deleted scenes, a 50 minute documentary, plus some other stuff.Basically for the image quality alone I'd advise picking this one up on Blu-ray - you'll be sucked into the world portrayed and all the more convinced by the onscreen onslaught that follows the cheery set-up.
