The 2005 infamous Ozploitation terror flick Wolf Creek scores a two-disc Blu-ray release from Via Vision Entertainment with a lenticular cover and is limited to a shockingly slim 1000 units!
Based on true crimes within the Australian Outback (not the steakhouse chain), the film rode the wave of body horror "torture porn" terror flicks like Hostel, High Tension, and the remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Only this one was pretty good and genuinely terrifying without completely diving deep into the depictions of mutilation and pain. Directed by Greg McLean and starring Kestie Morassi, Cassandra Magrath, and Snakes On A Plane's Nathan Phillips with John Jarratt turning in a particularly scary performance as Mick Taylor.
Absent a proper Blu-ray release in the United States after HD-DVD went defunct, Wolf Creek has been around the block in other markets and territories on the format for several years now. While we await a domestic release, ViaVision is delivering an exciting 2-Disc 2-Version Limited Edition with a lenticular cover and six art cards. $40+ shipping (U.S) may be a bit steep for some but it'd be great to finally have both cuts of the film in the same package. I'm tired of waiting for someone to deliver the first and best of the series while Wolf Creek 2 has been available here stateside for years, so I think I'm going to take the plunge and jump for this edition.
Again, this set is limited to only 1000 units so get those pre-orders in fast! You can only purchase this direct from ViaVision
