New Trailer for Australian ‘Killing Ground’ Has Balls

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.

We now have a new trailer for IFC Midnight’s latest acquisition, arriving in limited theaters and on VOD platforms July 21, 2017.

Fred Topel reviewed the film for Bloody, calling it the Australian Hills Have Eyes. Check out his quotes in the trailer!

“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.

    It looks like a blend of ‘Storm Warning’, ‘Eden Lake’, ‘Wolf Creek’, ‘Wrong Turn’, and a pinch of ‘I Spit on Your Grave’. And the proverbial cherry on top is its an IFC Midnight selection. Yeah I’m gonna have to check this one out.

    Saw this at the Overlook Film Fest. It plays with gender stereotypes in a clever way. It’s also pretty brutal.

      Good to hear thanks!

    Good looking trailer. Reminded me of Wilderness from 2006, with the German Shepherds.
