Wolf Creek is a 2005 Australian horror thriller film co-written and directed by Greg McLean. The film focuses on three backpackers who find themselves held captive in the Australian outback by Mick Taylor (John Jarratt), a sadistic serial killer. The film's screenplay was based somewhat on the true stories of serial killer Ivan Milat and the murder of Peter Falconio and the assault of his girlfriend Joanne Lees. A feature film sequel was released in 2013, and a television web series premiered on Stan in 2016.
The following weapons were used in the film Wolf Creek:
Remington Model 541
Mick Taylor (John Jarratt) carries what appears to be a vintage Remington 541 or 581 rimfire rifle chambered in .22 LR as one of his primary weapons. It is used by Mick to terrorize his victims and later briefly used by Liz Hunter (Cassandra Magrath). Coincidentally, the 541 was discontinued in 1999, when the film takes place. In reality, the actual rifle used by Ivan Milat was a .22-caliber Ruger 10/22.
Mick Taylor's long-range sniper rifle seen during the infamous road scene appears to be a Tikka 595 in .308 caliber. It is not the Remington seen earlier, noted by the stock and magazine, and the impressive distance the shot is fired from. It seems Mick uses a .22 to toy with victims but a more serious sniper rifle for hunting victims. Its appearance is quite accurate for the film; Tikkas are popular in Australia, along with Sakos.
Double Barreled Shotgun
Mick also uses a Double Barreled Shotgun of unknown make and model. It is never seen closely enough to identify.
