Villain Overview

You see, in this world, there's people like me and there's people like you. And people like me eat people like you for breakfast and shit them out. You're nothing but foreign vermin, a stinking introduced species. And it's up to my kind to wipe your kind out. And that makes me the winner, which makes you...
~ Taylor's speech to Paul after catching him for the last time in Wolf Creek 2, after which he head butts him and knocks him out.

Michael "Mick" Taylor is the main antagonist of the Wolf Creek film series, as well as the 2016 mini-series of the same name. He is also the main protagonist of Wolf Creek: Origins and Wolf Creek: Desolation Games.

He is a calculating, manipulative, psychotic, traitorous, heartless, and extremely sadistic man who kidnaps tourists after gaining their trust in the vast, empty Australian Outback and brutally tortures, sexually assaults, and mutilates them.

He was portrayed by John Jarratt.

Description

He claims that his performance was so convincing he was unable to get work for two years following the release of the first film. Jarratt's performance has been highly praised and has since been thought of as one of the great horror heavies in film. Jarratt's evil laugh, which he claims took four months to get just right, gave costarring actress Cassandra Magrath nightmares.

The character's personality traits were modeled after Jarratt's father (though he stresses that the psychotic killer part was added) and the character is styled after the polar opposite of Crocodile Dundee.

Personality

Mick is a murderous, unpleasant, manipulative, opprobrious, deceitful, vicious, and clever man who seems nice, but ultimately is an extremely traitorous, dangerous, and uncaring individual who is sexually obsessed with torturing, raping, and murdering women particularly, although he will also kill the men they are with, usually leaving them to die. He is so depraved that he even chases and kills children.

He usually begins by stalking victims before rendering their car immobile and later arriving to offer help. He offers to tow them back to his camp. If they oblige, the victims are drugged and tortured. If they refuse, the victims are murdered on the spot. Mick will also toy with victims, like pretending to shoot them or freak them out with bizarre behavior before revealing his true colors.

A proud xenophobe, Mick spent time in Vietnam raping and killing local women. He is also hypocritical, as he often claims to his victims that they are not welcome in Australia, yet killed many Australians as shown in Wolf Creek: Origins.

An untrustworthy and treacherous man, he will display increasingly unstable traits such as a psychotic glare before drugging his victims. He may also be cannibalistic, but this has yet to be confirmed.

Little is known about the character to keep him more ominous; however, Jarratt created a detailed biography for the character to base his performance off. He has not released this information.
