Nearly a year after a botched job, a hitman takes a new assignment with the promise of a big payoff for three killings. What starts off as an easy task soon unravels, sending the killer into the heart of darkness.
“…suffice to say that it builds slowly towards a feverish finale that could never have been foreseen from the events of Act One. The film contains numerous instances of brutal and unflinching violence, which will have toughened gorehounds wincing through their fingers, but it is the stifling atmosphere that slowly closes in on you that will leave the longest impression… Seen as a whole, Kill List more than earns its pay-off, which should leave audiences stunned, breathless and in dire need of a stiff drink” – Twitchfilm
“Some films send their characters to hell and back, but few do so with the genre-bending, mind-fucking intensity of Kill List. Equal parts drama, thriller, and horror, the movie takes both characters and viewers on a hellish descent down the bloody rabbit hole with stops along the way for mystery, murder, and flesh-busting madness” – Film School Rejects
“A dark, funny, disturbing picture — not for the squeamish, though it’s as given to subtle creepiness as outright horrors. With this, Wheatley elevates himself from kill list to A list. Right now, he’s among the most promising filmmakers in Britain”. – Empire
Forget everything you think you already know about Ben Wheatley’s KILL LIST. Face it. You’re not prepared for a cinematic experience like this. Ignore the comparisons. Ignore the reviews and spoiler alerts. Simply accept the reality that you can never be ready for what Mr. Wheatley has in store for you. For he is about to smack you in the face with the cinematic equivalent of frying pan. Not just any old frying pan; one of those cast iron mothers. And he is going to do it many times. You may just like it! – Andrew Mack
