I finally had the chance to see Ben Wheatley’s UK genre-mash-up Kill List (review), which stars will premiere at FrightFest on Sunday, August 28 and open in UK cinemas on September 2. It does more than live up to the hype – it builds on it. The thriller is dark, twisted and straight up gut-wrenching. It does to the viewer what A Serbian Film does without being so incredibly vile. Kill List is making my top 10 of 2011 guaranteed.
The pic starring Neil Maskell, Michael Smiley, and MyAnna Buring is about a group of demobbed soldiers turned contract killers who run up against a devil-worshipping coven.
“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.”
