From what I've noticed, horror has been divided in too many subcategories. We have gore, torture porn, dark thrillers and so on. The French do most of the gore as clearly they missed the mark for a true scary story. Of course there are some better examples like Haute Tension or Martyrs for some, but they still include a lot of blood and violence. Spain makes brilliant thrillers, just lovely, superb stories that rarely manage to scare but intrigue more than anything.
An Aussie horror is mainly represented by some lost campers somewhere that are about to be tortured by some crazy hillbillies. I've seen this story so many times, that it turned into nothing short but boredom for me. I won't say Killing Ground is a bad movie, far from it, but it has been made a lot of times before. Storm Warning, Wolf Creek, Timber Falls, Eden Lake, Turistas and so many that turned the formula into a cliché by now. It's like seeing another zombie movie, you know what you are about to watch and expect right?
So if you want to watch another add-on of this type, go ahead, it will deliver perhaps slightly better. I'm ready for something different tho.
