Trailer for “Killing Ground” Will Make You Reconsider That Camping Trip

Killing Ground

The US trailer has dropped for the Australian horror/thriller  Killing Ground, and it may make you think again about that camping trip you had planned this summer. The buzz is that this is a pretty brutal and disturbing flick, and the trailer seems to support that. It hits theaters and VOD on July 21, 2017. Here is a look at the trailer:

Non-linear storytelling, families in peril, and killer Australian hillbillies  – what is not to like? Here is the official 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, time-scrambling structure, Killing Ground delivers both nerve-shredding suspense and gut-punching realism.
