A young German couple, Rutger & Katarina, hitch a ride to the Wolf Creek Crater and camp nearby for the night. Mick sees their tent and offers them a ride back to town so they aren't fined for camping in a national park. The couple decline the offer, angering Mick. He attacks the couple, killing Rutger. Katarina escapes but is then chased by Mick. She makes her way to the highway where she is picked up by Paul, a British tourist. Mick is hot on their heels and eventually shoots Katarina (Paul miraculously ducks the shot and survives). He escapes and reaches the highway the following day. Almost out of fuel, he tries to flag down a semi-trailer but soon realises that it has been hijacked by Mick. The chase is on again. Paul manages to escape again when his car rolls down a steep hillside. He then wanders through the open outback and just about gives in when he sees a cottage. He is taken in by an elderly couple but is of course tracked down by our villain again. The elderly couple are no match for Mick. After shooting them both he chases Paul on horse eventually capturing him and taking him back to his lair. There he plays a torturous game testing his Australian general knowledge with a pop quiz where each wrong answer will cost him a finger. After losing two fingers he manages to hit Mick over the head with a hammer and flee through his dungeon in search for a way out. While running down the halls he comes across dozens of Micks past victims. He finally comes to an exit but first he must find his way across the Punji stick trap. He hears someone approaching and hides behind a corner. As they walk past he hits them in the head with the hammer and they fall onto the trap. Paul realises it's not Mick but one of his female victims. Mick then knocks Paul unconscious. He then awakes on a footpath in a small town covered in wounds and dressed only in his underwear. Title cards then reveal that despite his reports of a crazed gunman, Paul was named as a suspect in the murder of several tourists - very reminiscent of the first movies ending.
As with the first film, I was left terrified - probably shouldn't have watched it late at night just before going to bed. I do love a good scare though and it certainly achieved that.
