In Australian director Damien Power’s Killing Ground, which we already reviewed out of the Sundance Film Festival, Ian and Samantha arrive at an isolated campsite to find an SUV and a tent—with no sign of the occupants. The discovery of a distressed child wandering in the woods unleashes a terrifying chain of events that will test the young couple’s breaking point.
IFC Midnight sent in this clip from the film arriving in limited theaters and on VOD platforms July 21, 2017. It shows two men stalking a woman and discussing if she’s the right age.
“Tension builds as the narrative threads wind together; danger escalates and Sam and Ian’s options narrow drastically. The Australian bush setting plays a significant role in the film, and Killing Ground is part of a long tradition of Australian cinema – from Picnic at Hanging Rock to Wolf Creek – that finding a deep sense of unease in a hostile wilderness.”
Aaron Pedersen, Ian Meadows, Harriet Dyer, and Aaron Glenane star in Killing Ground.
