We start our adventure with a young man and a car purchased for $1500. After trying a few times he gets the pile started and goes off to pick up his companions, and together they head off to the crater at Wolf Creek.
Wes Craven is considered one of the “Masters of Horror”, and his pedigree certainly lives up to that title. With films like Last House on the Left, and the A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream (he didn’t write Scream, only directed) series under his belt, you can almost expect any film bearing his name will surely be good, and at the very least entertaining.
