The Movie: Wolf Creek (2005)
The Character: Liz Hunter and Kristy Earl (Cassandra Magrath and Kestie Morassi)
Wolf Creek's based on a real-life case, but writer/director Greg Mclean naturally had to embellish the story to get a whole movie out of it.
Sadly, he falls into a few narrative plot holes that leave us thinking his terrified female protagonists just didn't think out their idea when they were escaping from loony outback rapist/killer Mick Taylor after seemingly battering his head in.
True, they're mostly running on instinct, but their plan - to drive away in his truck and ditch it over the side of a cliff so he thinks they're dead is just ridiculous.
If Only They'd: Oh, say, not stopped at the cliff, driven the truck back towards civilization and gotten help. Plus they needed to make sure Mick was dead - knocked out won't do.
Which they learn when they go back to the camp.
How Do They Die? Liz is trying to start one of the cars when Mick stabs her through the seat. He then removes her fingers and slices her spinal cord so she bleeds to death paralysed.
He kills Kristy after she tries to escape in another motorists' car.
