Frightfest 2017 Interview: ‘Killing Ground’ director Damien Power

by Stuart Wright

Time for another Frightfest 2017 as our host Stuart Wright talks Killing Ground with writer/director Damien Power – the film has its European Premiere at the festival on Sunday August 27th.

A young couple on a camping trip to an isolated beach discover someone has already pitched a tent and seemingly abandoned it. As time passes by and its owners don’t return, the newcomers start to suspect the worst. Then all hell breaks loose… thanks to audaciously interweaving storylines spanning two suspensefully distinct chronologies hours apart – and not for the faint-hearted. A brutal bushland nerve-shredder, Damien Power’s slow-burning shocker shares kindred spirits with WOLF CREEK and THE LONG WEEKEND in the Ozploitation annals, bolstered by raw and revelatory turns from a superb ensemble cast working the tension to fever pitch.

The Horror Channel Frightfest takes place August 24th – 28th 2017 at both the Empire Cinema and Prince Charles Cinema in London’s Leicester Square.
