Mickey Keating heads to Carnage Park


RITUAL’s Mickey Keating is a name we’ll be hearing plenty of around these parts as the rising genre director not only has two films slated for later this year—POD and DARLING—but he’s already gearing up for CARNAGE PARK, a horror film of the survival variety, reports Shock Till You Drop.

In talking with the site, Keating said, “I want Carnage Park to be an unflinching, pulpy homage to the gritty crime films of the 1970’s, like Peckinpah’s The Getaway, Bring Me The Head of Alfredo Garcia, and Campanile’s Hitch Hike and also survivalist films like Deliverance, Escape 2000, The Running Man and of course The Most Dangerous Game.” There's so much good in so few sentences. Nice.

Here’s what we know about the film:

CARNAGE PARK is “set in the late 1970s and tells the story of a bank heist gone awry,” Keating explains. “Two low-level crooks take a hostage and drive deep into the desert, where they end up in Carnage Park, an isolated stretch of land occupied by a psychotic ex-soldier who hunts people with a high powered sniper rifle. It’s set almost entirely over the course of one brutal day.”

It will be produced by Eric B. Fleischman and Sean Tabibian and their Diablo Entertainment. It is expected to shoot this summer.
