Horror fans tempted by outback

The forthcoming horror movie Wolf Creek 2 could bring many international tourists to Australia's outback.

The forthcoming horror movie Wolf Creek 2 could bring many international tourists to Australia's outback.

West Australian has seen a rise in visitors fascinated by the first hit movie, which was launched in 2005, as people travel to see the remote Wolfe Creek Crater, which provided the inspiration for the story.

ABC reports local tourist operators are keen to cash in on the film's success and the town of Kimberley is promoting its links to the macabre tale.

Greg McLean, the creator of the Wolf Creek films, explained: "People now know the name, and where they might not know the name Halls Creek or Kimberley many are coming and saying where's this Wolf Creek?"

He added many travellers, especially younger people, are keen to spend the night at the creek crater to see if anything sinister happens.

Wolf Creek 2 has just been released in Australia and again features serial killer Mick Taylor.
