A group of friends travel through the Australian outback and encounter a strange female on the road in dire need of their assistance. What unfolds next is a shocking and unrelenting game of cat-and-mouse and psychological terror as they are victimized by three unknown strangers. The friends must fight to survive and escape the unforeseen terrors that they have encountered.
Wrath is not what it looks to be… Sure, we have blood and lots of it, there’s a lot of gore too, but there lacks a certain quality to it that I can’t necessarily place. The acting isn’t too shabby, the directing could have been worse, but I guess what got to me the most is that it has been done in the past. We have Wrong Turn, The Hills Have Eyes and other weird and wonderful horror movies that could very well be classified in the same category as Wrath, and frankly, I’d much rather spend my money on those films than having this one in my collection. It could have also been the way that the movie just didn’t catch my attention… or frankly, it could be because it’s Australian and I have declared a personal war against the whole nation. Either way, I didn’t enjoy Wrath even a little bit. I got bored five minutes in, got a little more interested for thirty seconds and then prayed the time to fly by. Okay, so maybe this is a bit of ranty review, but as I said, the acting wasn’t bad, neither was the directing (the cinematography was a but shaky, but I’ve seen worse) and hell there was enough blood in the film to keep a horror enthusiast happy, so why didn’t I like it? I have no idea… Sometimes you just get a film that doesn’t push your buttons in the right way and I guess that Wrath was one of those flicks for me.
However, this is not to say that other viewers will feel the same. There’s a pretty stable plot for Wrath, which sports some interesting parts that’ll give the viewer something to look forward to. The ending wasn’t too bad either, though it may have been slightly predictable in some ways. Other than that though, other viewers may actually sit on the edge of their seat as the suspense builds. So, by all means give it a watch and remember that my opinion is merely my own. Also, I’ve posted the trailer below from a third party reviewer to help readers make up their minds and judge for themselves if it’s a movie worthy of being bought.
