Kill List was one of last year’s best horror movies and earned its director, Ben Wheatley, a must-see status from me in regard to checking out his future films. His followup, Sightseers, premiered during the Vanguard portion of TIFF this week and Brad (Mr. Disgusting) writes in with the review. I agree with him in some regards, though overall I think I liked the film a bit more.
“Sightseers is Wheatley’s version of ‘Natural Born Killers’ or ‘God Bless America’, only instead of taking on the media and pop culture, he focuses on the elitist and self-absorbed attitudes of today’s youth… the message doesn’t have much impact post the initial kill. Sightseers may be worth a glance, but it’s not a place you’d visit again”
