Sites of Death: the fictions and realities of Wolf Creek

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter


The horror film Wolf Creek interweaves fact with fiction, and real with imaginary locations. In recounting a series of violent crimes, it provides a spectacle of cruelty, suspense and shock. It presents a vista of the Australian outback which is memorable, being very striking, but is also devoid of any humanistic meaning.
