Killing Ground

Killing Ground is a tightly-wound thriller reminiscent of the 70’s survival thrillers such as Deliverance and Straw Dogs and more recent chillers The Vanishing and Funny Games. The film is a modern campfire story about fear, violence, heroism, and the limits of courage.

The film tells the story of Ian and Samantha, who arrive at an isolated campsite to find an SUV and a tent – no sign of the occupants. As night falls and the campers fail to return, Ian and Sam grow increasingly uneasy. The discovery of a distressed child wandering in the woods unleashes a terrifying chain of events that will test them to the breaking point.

Killing Ground has a taut, non-linear structure, which contributes to an atmosphere of timeless menace and dread. Tension builds as the narrative threads wind together, danger escalates, and Sam and Ian’s options narrow drastically. The Australian bush setting plays a significant role in the film, and Killing Ground is part of a long tradition of Australian cinema – from Picnic at Hanging Rock to Wolf Creek – that finding a deep sense of unease in a hostile wilderness.

  • Cool: ‘Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams’: Amazon Finalizes Season 1 Cast With Maura Tierney & Others; Bryan Cranston Role Set

    Annalise Basso and Maura Tierney are set for the episode 'Safe and Sound', with Essie Davis, Liam Cunningham and Ruth Bradley in 'Human Is'. Series exec producer Cranston, who had been announced as acting in an unspecified episode of the show, will appear in 'Human Is'.

    In “Safe & Sound,” Basso (Ouija: Origins of Evil) plays a small-town girl, already gripped with social anxiety, who moves to a big, futuristic city with her mother (Tierney, The Affair). Exposed for the first time to urban society’s emphasis on security and terrorist prevention, it isn’t long before her school days are consumed by fear and paranoia. She soon finds guidance and companionship in the most unexpected of places. The episode is written by Kalen Egan & Travis Sentell and directed by Alan Taylor.

    “Human Is,” penned by Jessica Mecklenburg and helmed by Francesca Gregorini, follows a woman (Davis, The White Princess) suffering in a loveless marriage. She finds that, upon his return from battle, her emotionally abusive husband (Cranston, Sneaky Pete) suddenly appears to be a different man — in more ways than one. Cunningham (Game of Thrones) plays General Olin, and Bradley (Humans) is Yaro. Amazon notes that the episode cuts to the heart of Philip K. Dick’s core concern: What, truly, defines us as human?

  • Argh shucks George Romero and Clive Barker Almost Directed ‘The Mummy’ Remakes in the 90s

    According to producer James Jacks, Universal wanted to turn The Mummy into a low-budget horror franchise, intent on keeping the budget around $10 million for a remake of the original classic.

    The original choice to direct? Clive Barker, fresh off making Hellraiser!

    Barker’s vision for The Mummy, which he fleshed out with fellow master of horror Mick Garris, was to make it scary, violent and sexually charged. The story revolved around the head of a contemporary art museum who turns out to be a cultist trying to reanimate mummies, but the concept got way weirder than that. As Barker relayed to Fangoria back in 2015, the overall idea was so outside the box that Universal rejected it outright. In fact, they said it was just too “perverted” to ever make!

  • Thom Yorke Talks ‘Blade Runner’ Inspiring His ‘Suspiria’ Score: „Vangelis, it’s him. It’s his hands that made that, which encouraged me. Because that was the thing I was finding most daunting. Normally a horror movie involves orchestras, these specific things. But Luca [Guadagnino], the director, and Walter [Fasano], the editor, are very much, like, find your own path with it. They’re giving me as much freedom as they can. I just have to find a way into it. Which I am doing. It’s exciting.“

Coco

Coco follows the secret musical ambitions of Miguel, who resides in a lively, loud Mexican village but comes from a family of shoemakers that may be the town’s only music-hating household. For generations, the Riveras have banned music because they believe they’ve been cursed by it; as their family history goes, Miguel’s great-grandfather abandoned his wife decades earlier to follow his own dreams of performing, leaving Imelda (Miguel’s great-grandmother) to take control as the matriarch of the now-thriving Rivera line and declare music dead to the family forever.

But Miguel harbors a secret desire to seize his musical moment, inspired by his favorite singer of all time, the late Ernesto de la Cruz. It’s only after Miguel discovers an amazing link between himself and De la Cruz that he takes action to emulate the famous singer and, in doing so, accidentally enters the Land of the Dead.

In the beautiful underworld, it’s not long until Miguel encounters the souls of his own family — generations’ worth of long-dead but no less vivacious Rivera ancestors, including great-grandmother Imelda. Still, given the opportunity to roam around the Land of the Dead, Miguel decides to track down De la Cruz himself. He teams up with another friendly (and skeletal) spirit — a trickster named Hector, — to find De la Cruz, earn his family’s blessing to perform, and return to the Land of the Living before time runs out.
