Wolf Creek 2 – movie review

Wolf Creek 2 (2013) Plot: The outback once more becomes a place of horror as another unwitting tourist becomes the prey for crazed, serial-killing pig-hunter Mick Taylor (John Jarratt).

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre – movie review

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) Plot: After picking up a traumatized young hitchhiker, five friends find themselves stalked and hunted by a deformed chainsaw-wielding killer and his family of equally psychopathic killers.
