While Wolf Creek horror was filmed, weather was so cloudy or wet that screenwriters hastily rewritted the script to include references to the fact that it was unexpectedly raining.
The crater in the movie really exists and it is in Western Australia. In reality it’s spelled “Wolfe Creek”.
The sign at the entrance of the old mining company site where the killer takes his victims, Navithalim Mining Co, is actually the name of backpacker murderer Ivan Milat spelled backward.
The party scenes in the movie, lasted for over half an hour before being cut down.
In scenes shot on the beach early in the film although it looks warm on screen, there were actually so cold that for the scene where Mcgrath runs out into the ocean, all of the crew were behind camera in hats and gloves.
John Jarratt’s sinister laugh while filming gave actress Cassandra Magrath real nightmares.
The car that Kestie Morassi rolls in the film still ran despite being wrecked, after the stunt has been performed.
The film had only a 25 working days shooting schedule, all in 5 weeks.
Actor Nathan Phillips, who played Ben Mitchell, designed the tattoos seen on his arms in the film himself.
Whole movie was shot entirely chronologically.
