That's Not a Knife

Saw Wolf Creek last weekend -- in an honest-to-God movie theater. Happily, the crowd was well behaved. As for the movie, it was a decent, gritty horror flick, no more, no less. It had a resolutely downbeat ending, which I liked because it fit the tone of the movie. The two female leads were cute as buttons, which made the events of the film all the more disturbing. John Jarrat as Mick was really good. But back to the audience: I saw a mom and dad bringing two small kids into this rated R movie full of bloody violence and implied sexual assault. Way to go there, Ward and June.
