** [[FauxAffablyEvil Michael "Mick" Taylor]] is an Australian [[SerialKiller killer]], [[SerialRapist rapist]], and torturer who preys upon tourists visiting the Wolf Creek area, falsely befriending them before taking them back to his home and slowly torturing them to death. He has killed several dozen people including an entire family, [[WouldHurtAChild even a little girl]]. One of his favorite torture methods is "head on a stick" where he [[AndIMustScream severs their spine to turn them into a human vegetable]]. At the end of the second film, he [[FrameUp frames one of his victims for his crimes, leading to the ruination of the victimís life]]. The prequel novels ''Origin'' and ''Desolation Game'' elaborate on this. He [[{{Matricide}} killed his mother]] who loved him dearly, beat a bully so bad he knocked his eyeball from its socket leaving it dangling by the eyestalk, and [[BadPeopleAbuseAnimals killed a dog]] to force feed it to its owner before killing him too. While being pursued by four other serial killers, Mick tied up his girlfriend Rose and used her as rape bait to lure the killers into a trap, and killed one named Jerry by gutting him and force-feeding him his own intestines. During his time in the UsefulNotes/VietnamWar, he raped several women and later slaughtered their village, and stabbed an already paralyzed man in the back before cutting his head off and mounting it on a pike. He continued raping, torturing, and killing when he returned home. In the TV miniseries, he murders [[TheProtagonist Eve Thorogood]]'s family, and spends the rest of the series trying to kill her. He captures her LoveInterest and tortures him before making her stab and kill her love interest herself.

** ''Wolf Creek: Origin'': In this prequel novel to the films, [[DirtyOldMan Jerry "The Fiddler"]] is one of four {{serial killer}}s that Mick Taylor investigates while attempting to reclaim his knife. Jerry is an [[FatBastard obese]] pedophile who [[SerialRapist rapes]] and [[WouldHurtAChild kills]] children. Jerry lives in an abandoned mine that he has booby-trapped to kill intruders (we see the skeleton of one of his adult victims). When Mick enters Jerry's home, he sees Jerry raping a little girl, and finds trophies and corpses of three of his past victims, and also sees Jerry [[KickTheDog kill a dog]]. After Mick murders a touring couple, Jerry and the other killers decide to kill Mick out of revenge for allowing the bodies to be discovered, which brought police into the area and made it more likely for the killings of the other killers to be discovered. When the killers attack Mickís home, Jerry tries to rape Mick's girlfriend Rose (who Mick had tied up to lure the killers into a trap). Just before Mick kills Jerry, he tells Mick that he should have killed the two truckers who discovered the couples bodies, stating "You never let anyone go."

Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: The last we see of Ben is him being loaded onto a plane to testify in a trial. Nathan Phillips later stars in ''Film/SnakesOnAPlane'' where he's boarding a plane to testify in another murder trial.


Added DiffLines:

* NauseaFuel: [[spoiler: Liz gets her fingers casually lopped off by Mick's hunting knife]].
* WhatAnIdiot: Liz shoots Mick and knocks him out with the gun. While he's at her mercy, she does not shoot him in the head or make sure he's definitely dead. [[spoiler: Because she doesn't act in this vital moment, she and Kristy end up dead]].
* TheWoobie: Kristy definitely, considering the amount of horror she has to put up with. Whereas Liz and Ben are just locked up, Kristy is implied to have been raped (her pants are down and there is blood on her legs) and personally tortured by Mick. [[spoiler: Then when Liz is killed, Kristy has to run out onto the highway by herself]].
