Product Description

Eight months after a disastrous hit job in Kiev left him physically and mentally scarred (and struggling to support his wife and son), Jay, (Neil Maskell) is pressured by his partner and best friend Gal (Michael Smiley) into taking a lucrative three-part assignment: kill a priest, a librarian, and finally a member of Parliament. As the two men - one a volatile hothead, the other a careful professional - carry out their work with shocking brutality, Jay's world begins to unravel until paranoia and unexplainable visions send him plunging into the heart of darkness. A one-of-a-kind blend of hitman thriller and terrifying psychological horror film, Kill List is a mind-blowing genre concoction that captivates in its rawness.

What starts of slow turns into a blood bath. For art film lovers, who also love horror, or suspense genre films will be in for a treat. You might need to watch a second time, but totally not like your usual action or horror film. A gruesome ending too. Not for the Squamish! Violent and horrifying.

I don't doubt that the makers of "Kill List" abound with talent and good intentions. Unfortunately, they fail to make the most of those attributes to bring this otherwise smouldering, gritty, and unnerving film to a satisfying conclusion.

Jay and Gal are ex-army pals who do the odd "contract" to stay afloat. Jay hasn't worked in eight months, and his wife Shel is starting to lose her patience. Gal tells Jay about a new job that's come their way, and at his wife's behest, Jay (despite being haunted by a job that went pear-shaped in Kiev some months ago) agrees to it. They meet their employer, a man of few words and a sardonically detached expression, who slices open Jay's hand to seal the contract in blood.

The remainder of the movie details the tracking and assassination of the three targets, "The Priest", "The Librarian", and "The M.P.". There is a modest amount of violence, with one kill in particular being particularly vicious, but even more unsettling are some of the victims' reactions to seeing Jay coming for them. "Thank you," they say, as they take their licks with beatific insouciance. In between jobs, Jay finds his cat hanging outside his home, which Jay takes to be a "message"--although it's not clear what the message is, nor from whom it's come.

Jay's trauma from his previous work, knowledge of his victims' crimes, and the worrisome nature of his targets' inexplicable gratitude take their toll. Jay becomes more disgusted, unhinged, and fervent. During their final job at the M.P.'s estate, Gal and Jay happen upon a paganistic sacrifice au naturel in the woods. Their attempted rescue of the lady being offered (who also appears completely unperturbed about her fate) results in Gal being stabbed by one of the participants.

Now I'm not gonna delve into the whole movie but first i have to say i really love the movie to a point. these type of films is up my alley.the problem i have with it is the guy is mad that he can't find work so he takes it out on his wife and his kid one time he's mad as hell the next he's loving then he's mad again
then his buddy comes over to the house with some woman and their having a good time and all of a sudden he's mad as hell again so his friend told him about this job that he has lined up for them to kill three people but that's okay with me so before the job get started they go to this Restaurant type hotel so their sitting there eating and some people on the opposite side of them are having some type of a festival and this skinny guy is playing a guitar so it apprently pissed him off and he goes over and tell the man to stop playing you should not be playing a guitar in a hotel and if you don't stop i'll break it what i would've like to see him break it and then this other person that's with this crowd of people comes from the bathroom of somewere and Kick the daylight's [S.,t] out of him and he has to go thourgh the whole movie with cotton balls up his nose NOW THAT WOULD BE SOO GOOD..Kill List [Blu-ray]

Dont really want to give anything away. If you're a true fan of horror, you owe it to yourself to watch this.

Tonally, its akin to The Wicker Man. Plenty of general uneasiness had.

Bad People Should Suffer Feb. 4 2012
By Tommy Dooley - Published on Amazon.com
This is an independent horror drama from director and writer Ben Wheatley who has worked with comedians Steve Coogan and Jonny Vegas in the past, but this one does not have a foot in the realm of comedy. It is about two old army buddies, who decided to become hit men after their country no longer needed them. We join Jay (Neil Marshall) a year after a bungled job in Kiev. His acerbic wife Shell (played with brilliant complexity by MyAnna Buring) tells him all their money is gone, as he has not done any `work' for a year. He meanwhile only wants to cure his back in their hot tub; she insists he is making it all up and there is nothing wrong with him.

Then his old mucker turns up, Gal (Michael Smiley). They are having a dinner party and Gal has brought his latest flame Fiona, a mysterious one indeed who seems to enjoy pentangle like symbols. Well after a mass row, Gal invites Jay to go back to work. They agree and set off to meet their client. He gives them a hit list that includes a priest a librarian and an MP. They are not told their crimes and so Jay lets his imagination fill in the blanks. He is still traumatised from past experiences and seems to find some form of mental rehabilitation through inflicting violence. This he goes at with some very worrying gusto indeed.

What unfolds gets darker and darker as the violence escalates and things are seen in their true light. This is one from the school of seventies horror with a sort of cross between the classic `The Wicker Man'and Peter Fonda's lost classic `Race with the Devil' . There is plenty of disturbing violence, language that a docker would baulk at and some brilliantly tense scenes. The soundtrack works too, even though at first I felt it was trying to be too spooky with echoey voices all over the place. By the end you will not notice as everything coalesces to a climax that kept me guessing.

Not a straight forward horror as there is a lot of life drama too and some exploration of the mental luggage that people acquire who have been in stressful situations. All of the acting was above par and a lot is left unexplained, in that you automatically fill in the gaps. I actually thought this was really good. Also a note on funding, this was a collaboration with the UK Film Council and Channel 4 who should be praised for their involvement, it's a shame the Council is being abolished. If you like the new wave of Brit horrors then this is up there with the better ones.

In the Tradition of Wickerman Jan. 5 2014
By Becca - Published on Amazon.com
As a British movie hound I have been watching all genres of British movie-making for 40 years. To appreciate this film, try watching the original version of "Wickerman" or any of the British horror films involving cults from the 60's and 70's. It was interesting to see a modern version of this style of storytelling. It works for those familiar with this style of British horror. If it's your first visit for such film-making, I understand your disdain. It is a developed appreciation. Good acting, good storytelling. It kept me in the dark asking questions til near the end, then the "Ahah" moment led me through the remainder of the film and made the ending less horrifying.

Really Strange! Oct. 7 2013
By Christy J. Wrenn - Published on Amazon.com
I like strange movies, but this one was "Really Strange." I guess I just didn't appreciate how this guy won out to become a hired killer. Don't really know why I disliked this movie like I did. Maybe you need to see it for yourself and make your own judgement.
Slow and strange, where only ending is scary July 28 2014
By Kurt Russell - Published on Amazon.com
This movie feels like the filmmakers liked their nifty ending, then shabbily constructed a meandering hour and half of "story" to justify it. The movie starts slow and stays that way for the majority of the time. I guess there's a "natural" manner to the proceedings, but that also means dull and unexceptional. The movie changes in genres too, shifting from a mundane domestic drama to an occult horror film. Again, some may appreciate that unconventional storytelling, but to me it felt very lazy, inconsistent and confusing.

Like so many bad horror movies, this film has one good scare, and you must suffer through the entire length to get there. While it's ultimately a good idea with decent execution, it's also entirely predictable too.

Clever or incoherent? Feb. 7 2012
By Rain King - Published on Amazon.com
I saw a screening of this last night and was very impressed. While some other reviewers here have criticized the pacing, I didn't have a problem with it. As long as I'm into the characters, I don't mind how long a story takes to unfold, and I was engrossed by the people in this film.

It's something of a hybrid film, a gritty British gangster movie that slowly morphs into something more horrific. Nearly every element of the production is fantastic, from the acting to the score to the cinematography. It is shockingly violent at times, at other moments thrilling, and, surprisingly, quite funny upon occasion.

What gives me pause is the writing. It isn't bad by any stretch of the imagination: the characters are fully fleshed out, the story is compelling, and everything moves along nicely. Where the trouble comes is in the ending. You might have heard some buzz about it being a shocker, and it sort of was. Part of the reason for that, though, is because it receives the faintest wisp of a set up in all the story's prior events. While I certainly felt the movie was building up to something akin to what the ending was, and I recognized moments when clues were being dropped, I was never able to put them together.

As the credits rolled, I wished the theater would start the film again from the beginning, so that I could apply my newfound knowledge to the same scenes I had just witnessed and possibly make more sense of the whole thing. I believe a second viewing would help me answer the question:

Was this film pretty great? A nasty little genre thriller, clever in how it sets itself up, never holding the audience's hand too tightly? Or was it a noble failure, a movie with many great qualities taken on their own but which fail to add up to a satisfying whole because of an underwritten story?

I strongly recommend giving Kill List a shot. It's a captivating movie, regardless of how you feel about how it wraps up. I will certainly be paying attention to Ben Wheatley's future endeavors after viewing the talent on display in this film.
