Another 666-Character Review of ‘Killing Ground’
A couple is redirected by an odd stranger to a new camping ground. They set up next to another tent and prepare to relax, but the arrival of a lost, injured toddler is only the beginning of the ordeal in their future. The Killing Ground is a well-constructed thriller with an unexpected form and conclusion. It centers on familiar tropes such as rural hicks attacking city people, but still brings something new.Check out Sam’s review out of the Overlook Film Festival
Most of the film presents two stories concurrently that occur in the same place about a week apart until people in the present catch up to what happened in the past. It’s revealed in a subtle way over time. The ending shocks with its darkness. The only flaw is with the nonsensical couple who made the most terrible decisions. Overall, the film is a fast paced, taut thriller worthy of your time.
