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.
In one of the first big genre acquisitions out of the festival, IFC Films’ Midnight label acquired the Australian production with plans to release in theaters and on VOD later this year. TheWrap first reported the news.
Here’e a previously release clip with the trailer below.
“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.
