Killing Ground (2017)



Critic Consensus: Killing Ground unnerves and compels in equal measure with a grimly intense story that may be too disturbing for some but delivers a white-knuckle experience for fans of brutally realistic thrillers.

Movie Info

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.

Made with the basest of intentions and aimed at the lowest form of humanity there is, let this be the first and last feature from Damien Power.

Once the novelty of the film's non-linear plot wears off, Killing Ground is mercilessly rote.

These personality-free characters fade from your mind even as you're watching the screen, making the brutality waged against them akin to animated mutilation of cartoon creatures.

Continuing the tradition of brutal Australian horror films like "Wolf Creek," "Killing Ground" is an effective indie creeper that unnerves the audience with its all-too-realistic violence.

Your potential enjoyment of-or repulsion for-Killing Ground comes down to what you want to experience in a horror movie.

Thankfully, despite his realistic tone, Power isn't about to pull a Michael Haneke and deprive you of the catharsis you expect. He just makes getting there a brutal drive.
