I still can’t get Ben Wheatley’s UK genre-mash-up Kill List (review) out of my head, and most of you will be in the same boat come the end of September. Having its UK premiere at FrightFest on Sunday, August 28 and then playing the “Midnight Madness” portion of the Toronto International Film Festival in September, itt 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.”
