Actor Aaron Glenane Talks Outback Horror Killing Ground [Interview]

24 July 2017 2:39 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

One of the much buzzed about titles out of this past year's Sundance Film Festival Midnight program was a new Australian horror movie titled Killing Ground.

Outback horror is not new to North American audiences but writer/director Damien Power's debut feature is of particular note for the humanity it brings to both the victims and the perpetrators, something which is often overlooked in horror movies which are more interested in the gore than providing insight into characters - particularly the ugly ones.

Sam (Harriet Dyer) and Ian (Ian Meadows) leave the city for a weekend of camping. The pair arrive at their secluded spot and find the area is already occupied but their temporary neighbours are no where to be seen.

The couple's so-far uneventful trip soon turns chaot [Continued ...] »

Review: Killing Ground, Halfway to a Disturbing Classic

20 July 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

I love horror movies that are disquieting and suspenseful. I hate horror movies that traffic in sheer cruelty and stupidity. So I love the first half of Killing Ground. Sam (Harriet Dyer) and Ian (Ian Meadows) are the prototypical romantic couple from the city who head off into the remote woods for a little rest and recreation. It's a very familiar premise, to the point that horror movie devotees will assume that the supposedly sophisticated people from the city will undoubtedly cross paths with savage country bumpkins, leading to blood flowing freely and bodies piling up. That's not exactly the way it goes, though. Damien Power, who wrote and directed, previously made a series of short films, and his experience becomes evident as the story...

Killing Ground – Review

17 July 2017 4:35 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Review by Mark Longden

Although I’d be unlikely to say this about any other sub-genres, “family turns off road onto dirt track” movies feel a little played-out, like “seen one, seem them all” . A surprising thing to say about a genre with entries as varied as “Manos: The Hands Of Fate” and “The Evil Dead”, perhaps, but no less true; which is why it’s especially nice to see someone come up with a fascinating new twist on the genre, as first-time feature director Damien Power has done with Killing Ground.

Ian (Ian Meadows) and his girlfriend Sam (Harriet Dyer) are off for a weekend’s camping. Stopping at a bar to buy champagne and beer – he’s celebrating graduating from medical school – they meet German (Aaron Pederson), who looks like your stereotypical backwoods lunatic but is actually surprisingly helpful. When they arrive at the idyll-ish campsite, they see »

Harriet Dyer, Aaron Glenane and Damien Power Enter the Killing Ground at Los Angeles Premiere

14 July 2017 9:29 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Nothing will unify a couple that needs to rekindle their love more than their fight for survival during a tense and life-altering weekend. That reconnection process was clearly evident when the new thriller, ‘Killing Ground,’ held its Los Angeles premiere on Tuesday night at Franklin Canyon Park in Beverly Hills. Those who attended the premiere […]

First Clip from 'Killing Ground' gets campy

8 July 2017 10:08 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Seth Metoyer,

MoreHorror.com

IFC Midnight has sent over the first official clip from the horror, thriller film Killing Ground. The film will be released in theaters and VOD on July 21, 2017.

Check out the clip below the synopsis and a word from the director. Also dig on the poster art, I think it's tight.

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, »

Eiff 2017: Killing Ground Review

27 June 2017 6:03 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Steven Neish

It is often joked that in Australia everything wants to kill you, but while the vast majority are probably referring to the famously dangerous wildlife world cineastes are likely to be just as cautious of the people who live there. From Animal Kingdom to Wolf Creek, Snowtown to The Loved One, it seems as though you can’t trust your neighbours down under after all. Tasmanian writer-director Damien Power isn’t likely to change that with his debut feature, a blisteringly brutal horror thriller that will have you crossing out another Australian beauty spot and leaving your camping equipment behind.

It’s New Year’s Eve in the Australian outback, and Ian (Ian Meadows) is determined to spend the night with Sam (Harriet Dyer) a fondly remembered falls from his youth, despite the protestations of a local redneck (Aaron Pedersen as German) who insists that there is »

Camping Gets Horrific. Again [Trailer]

9 June 2017 9:35 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

I have a real soft spot for Australian horror movies, especially the ones which unfold in nature. It's like the adventurer soul that Ausies are known for comes through in the movies and that seems to be true of Killing Ground.

Writer/director Damien Power's latest stars Harriet Dyer and Ian Meadows as Sam and Ian, a couple who set out for a remote beach for a weekend camping trip. On the beach they discover an abandoned campsite and later, a lost child in the woods. Things turn nasty when a pair of locals come stumbling into their already off-kilter vacation.

Killing Ground premiered at Sundance earlier this year and has been toted as brutal, relentless horror movie and though the trailer doesn't really show anything horrific, it certainly builds a grea [Continued ...] »

Intense Official Trailer for Camping Trip Horror Film 'Killing Ground'

8 June 2017 5:05 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"This isn't right..." IFC Midnight has revealed the official trailer for an intense horror thriller titled Killing Ground, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. This indie thriller from Australia is about a couple who go camping to get out of the city, only to discover two creepy psychopaths tormenting the area. The film has "unexpected twists and turns" and is said to feature "nerve-shredding suspense and gut-punching realism". Starring Stephen Hunter, Harriet Dyer, Aaron Pederson, Ian Meadows, and Aaron Glenane. This definitely looks harrowing and, as one of the quotes says, relentless in its intensity. As one of the other quotes states, this will probably make me never want to go camping again. Take a look. Here's the first official trailer for Damien Power's Killing Ground, direct from YouTube: A couple's romantic camping trip becomes a desperate fight for survival in this ultra-raw, unhinged kill ride. »

A Camping Trip Goes Brutally Wrong in U.S. Trailer for ‘Killing Ground’

7 June 2017 6:14 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

There’s something about the Australian landscape that’s prime for horror. As evidenced just this year with the recent acclaimed thriller Hounds of Love, we now have another export from the country with Killing Ground. Directed by Damien Power, the Sundance premiere which gets a release next month follows a camping trip gone brutally wrong. Ahead of the U.S. release, an intense new trailer has now arrived.

“A rather satisfactory thriller from Aussie filmmaker Damien Power, Killing Ground is casually engaging and skillfully plotted, despite a bland absence of nuance in its execution,” we said in our review. “While occasionally as suspenseful as a good Jeremy Saulnier thriller, the film lacks all of the visual style or command of frame and composition found in those vastly superior works. Imagine a solid B-thriller, directed with the cleverness of a straight-to-vhs pot boiler.”
