Excited to see Damien Power's feature debut premiering at the Melbourne Film Festival in August, and grateful for the hard working music team who were in the trenches with me on this intense suspenseful survival thriller.
If you get a chance to see it - go!
Big congrats to Damien Power and Joe Weatherstone and everyone who had a hand in bringing it to the screen.
From the MIFF website:
"A remote campsite. An abandoned tent. A romantic getaway to die for.
When young urbanites Ian and Sam decide to go camping, they arrive at their isolated destination to discover another tent already set up, but no sign of its owners. With the other campers at large, Ian and Sam's discovery of a child wandering alone sets off a terrifying chain of events that will push them to their limits – and beyond.
Inspired by Michael Haneke's Funny Games and Sam Peckinpah's Straw Dogs, writer/director Damien Power's gloriously tense and unsettling feature-film debut Killing Ground showcases a menacingly against-type Aaron Pedersen, in a low-budget survival thriller pulsing with high-stakes scares, piercing intensity and shocking violence that will make you think twice next time you dare to head beyond the bright lights of the city."
Killing Ground is supported by Screen Australia.
