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.

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.Read more ›
