While the Australian tourist board would tout the country’s lush landscapes, natural rock formations, unique animal life and the fact that Crocodile Dundee is not actually a real person, we’re here to tell you: Don’t go to Australia. Or if you do go, stick to the cities. There are just too many horror movies made in the island nation’s desolate outback. For example, “Primal,” which airs tonight at 10:30 p.m. ET, starts out with some nice people going camping and then ends with death and destruction. With that many scary films being made there, some of them have to be true, right?
Here are five Australian horror movies to watch from the comfort of your couch:
1. “Razorback”: A gigantic wild boar terrorized the Australian outback, leaving trail of death, dismemberment and disemboweling in his wake.
2. “Primal”: A group of friends venture into the wilds of Australia to study an ancient rock painting, and comes face to face with an ancient evil when one of them experiences a terrifying transformation.
3. “Wolf Creek”: Three backpackers find themselves held captive by a serial killer in the Australian outback.
4. “Rogue”: A group of tourists in Australia fall prey to a giant, man-eating crocodile. It’s the scariest croc film this side of Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course.
5. “Dying Breed”
: The Tasmanian Tiger seems to have gone become extinct, but an ambitious zoologist is determined to find out. However her expedition will fall prey to a species with a savage appetite, and a murderous motivation to keep their bloodline strong, but it’s no tiger, it’s the Pieman’s legacy.
“Primal” airs tonight at 10:30 p.m. ET, Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 1:30 a.m. ET and
Saturday, Nov. 5 at 8:05 p.m. ET
