Killing Ground: Brutal and violent Australian shocker to hit theaters in July from IFC Midnight
Sundance and Overlook Film Festival horror hit Killing Ground is gearing up for its theatrical release in July and distributor IFC Midnight has just released the U.S. trailer. Killing Ground is a brutal tale of survival that will have your heart racing and it marks the debut feature of writer/director Damien Power and stars Australian actors Aaron Pedersen (ABC’s Jack Irish), Ian Meadows (Network Ten’s The Wrong Girl), Harriet Dyer (Nine Network’s Love Child) and Aaron Glenane (Truth). It’s a contemporary Ozsploitation thriller with great storytelling, editing and sound and will linger with you long after the credits roll.
Synopsis: A couple’s romantic camping trip becomes a desperate fight for survival in this ultra-raw, unhinged kill ride. In need of a break from the pressures of their life in the city, Sam (Harriet Dyer) and Ian (Ian Meadows) head to a remote beach for a weekend getaway. When they come across an abandoned campsite, with no trace of its occupants, they’re concerned. When they discover a lone, traumatized child nearby, they’re scared. And when they encounter two local weirdos, they’re in for a hell of a bad time. Unfolding in an innovative, time-scrambling structure, Killing Ground delivers both nerve-shredding suspense and gut-punching realism.
IFC Midnight will release the film in theaters and On Demand on Friday, July 21, 2017. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!
