A brilliant blend of family drama, hitman action-thriller and terrifying psychological horror film, KILL LIST tells the story of an ex-soldier turned contract killer who is plunged into the heart of human darkness. Eight months after a disastrous hit job in Kiev left him physically and mentally scarred, Jay (Neil Maskell) is pressured by his partner Gal (BIFA Winner Michael Smiley), into taking a new assignment. As they descend into the bizarre, disturbing world of the contract, Jay's world begins to unravel until fear and paranoia sending him reeling towards a horrifying point of no return.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
The film's title may draw you in, but it's the texture that keeps you watching.Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, 02.02.2012
Tries to be Eyes Wide Shut, The Wicker Man, and The Twilight Zone all at once, but only makes you wish that you were watching one of them instead.Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, 02.15.2012
Displaying both a nasty edge and a playful sense of humor -- but thankfully, never at the same time -- Brit import Kill List is several cuts above its fellow midbudget horror brethren.Andrew Barker, Variety, 01.08.2013
The camera is unflinching, and so is Wheatley, as the story moves toward the unthinkable. It's left to you when and whether to look away.Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, 02.02.2012
