Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An unusually crisp and boldly shot Texas Chainsaw Massacre knockoff."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"It's not your typical holiday attraction, but it should lift the spirits of horror devotees, if no one else."
‑ Lisa Rose, Newark Star-Ledger
"Gets under the skin"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"For all its efforts at avoiding the usual slasher movie nonsense, it does fall back on some familiar, lame plot devices."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"...an effective and thoroughly tense horror flick that's stylish without being obtrusive."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"What Wolf Creek offers is a competently made horror excursion with an unfortunate reliance upon clichés balanced off by some legitimate shocks."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Wolf Creek is wicked and witless -- cruel for the sake of cruelty."
‑ Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle
"I just wanted the damn thing to end..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"It is almost as if a hardcore survival horror film had been infiltrated (and slyly undermined) by the quieter mysticism of Peter Weir's Picnic At Hanging Rock..."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
"A solid flick that was robbed a bit in its theatrical release"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"It's a depressing exercise in just mutilation and torture."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"There's no substitute for bad taste. And this one has it double-barreled, both in the timing of its release and as a movie, one said to be loosely based on fact."
‑ Mike Clark, USA Today
"Despite the obvious influences of the original "Chainsaw," "Hills Have Eyes," "Last House," and other kidnap-terror films, you can't predict what is going to happen in this film."
‑ Lucius Gore, ESplatter
"A sustained plunge into abject horror that isn't meant to be laughed at or shaken off easily."
‑ Ethan Alter, Film Journal International
"It's competently made, but that alone doesn't make it a good film."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
