Three backpackers hoping to enjoy the Australian Outback are preyed upon by a maniac in 2007’s WOLF CREEK. The tourists mistakenly trust a stranger named Mick Taylor and soon find themselves unwilling participants in his twisted game. The relentless violence against the characters in the movie were actually inspired by the infamous Backpack murders that occurred in the Belanglo State Forest in New South Wales, Australia.
In the 1990s, the bodies of seven backpackers were discovered in an area of the forest known as “Executioners Drop.” Each body was found face-down with their hands tied behind their backs. The victims all died of various injuries including stab wounds, gun shots, strangulation and decapitation. The killer spent time with his victims before and after their deaths and several victims had stab wounds to their spines that most likely paralyzed them during the duration of the attacks. 
Authorities were led to the home of Ivan Milat, where they found numerous pieces of evidence—like sleeping bags and clothing belonging to the victims—that connected him to the murders. He was sentenced to life in prison for the seven murders and police have reason to believe he is responsible for many more unsolved murders.
