30,000 people go missing in Australia each year, with 90 per cent found within the first month. The rest are never seen again, But soon you will see the return of Mick Taylor! On 30th August Australia’s favourite murdering psychopath is coming to a small screen near you when Wolf Creek TV Series premiere’s on FOX UK. Today Eureka Entertainment announced they will release each episode digitally on demand 24 hours after it has aired on FOX TV, with the DVD and Blu-ray box set available to purchase from 6th October 2016.
Based on the international hit feature film of the same name, John Jarratt reprises his role as murdering psychopath Mick Taylor, wreaking havoc in the Australian outback. Wolf Creek will be a 6 part series with the first episode airing on FOX UK 30th August from 10pm with Eureka Entertainment releasing each episode digitally from 1st September.
Wolf Creek follows American teenager Eve Thorogood (Lucy Fry, 11.22.63) on holiday with her family in Northern Australia. Sadistic killer Mick targets the family, viciously slaughtering them for his own twisted pleasure. Seriously injured, Eve survives the massacre of her parents and little brother, and sets out to bring the killer to justice. And so begins a chilling game of cat and mouse, with the roles reversed and the hunter becoming the hunted. A Tarantino-esque revenge tale, Wolf Creek reveals Eve’s complex and extraordinary journey, as she evolves from child to adult, from prey to predator. But can she triumph over Mick Taylor, evil incarnate?
Ruth Brukarz-Schofield at Eureka Entertainment said: “This is a really exciting deal and major acquisition for Eureka. It will be a must own package for fans of the first two Wolf Creek movies, genre & horror fans, and any self-respecting fan of international television. We look forward to working alongside Fox TV and helping the show reach a wider UK audience, ahead of the third movie in the series. We expect this will be the first of many international TV titles to add to Eureka’s roster, alongside our award winning and critically acclaimed Masters of Cinema Series, as we celebrate the current culture of ‘binge watching.’ ”
If we’re to judge this series by the 2 previous films (Wolf Creek 2 review ) in the words of Mick it will be a bloody ripper!
