SXSW ’11: Devil Worshippers Attack in ‘Kill List’!

It’s rare when a movie gets made the entire team behind it keep their lips sealed until a festival. I mean, it’s got to be hard not to share your creativity with the world, no?

First discovered back in May, Ben Wheatley’s Kill List, which stars Neil Maskell, Michael Smiley, and MyAnna Buring, was announced as part of the Austin, Texas SXSW Film Festival. No details were revealed, but we’re so on top of our sh*t we’re excited to tell you that it’s about a group of demobbed soldiers turned contract killers who run up against a devil-worshipping coven (sounds a bit like what Rob Zombie is up to with The Lords of Salem). Anyways, here’s the super secret plot crunch and first ever hi-res still:

Beginning 8 months after a disastrous job in Kiev left him physically and mentally scarred, ex-soldier turned contract killer Jay, is pressured by his partner Gal, into taking a tough new assignment. As they descend into the dark, disturbing world of the contract, Jay begins to unravel once again – his fear and paranoia sending him deep into the heart of darkness.
