Editorial Reviews

Eight months after a disastrous hit job in Kiev left him physically and mentally scarred, ex-soldier turned contract killer Jay (Neil Maskell) is pressured by his partner Gal (Michael Smiley), into taking a new assignment. But as they descend into the bizarre, disturbing world of the contract, Jay's reality begins to unravel until fear and paranoia send him reeling towards a horrifying point of no return. From director Ben Wheatley (Down Terrace), KILL LIST is a mind-blowing psychological horror film that plunges into the heart of human darkness.

I like strange movies, but this one was "Really Strange." I guess I just didn't appreciate how this guy won out to become a hired killer. Don't really know why I disliked this movie like I did. Maybe you need to see it for yourself and make your own judgement.

England, The Present: Jay (Neil Maskell) is an ex-serviceman living a life of quiet seclusion with his wife Shel (MyAnna Buring) and young son, Sam (Harry Simpson) in a suburban domicile on a non-descript housing estate. Unable to work due to a traumatic workplace incident, the financial and emotional pressures of Jay’s unemployment are slowly beginning to take their toll on the family. But then the couple receive a visit from Jay’s former comrade-in-arms, Gal (Michael Smiley) who has an offer of employment for Jay which will require the particular set of skills which both men have acquired in their professional lives.

I’ve been as deliberately nebulous as possible in summarizing the inciting incident of Ben Wheatley’s "Kill List" because, frankly, much of the pleasure of the film lies in the slowly unfurled and beautifully judged revelations of its characters’ backgrounds and personalities, as well as the various twists and turns of its plot. Frankly, with "Kill List", the less you know about the plot and characters going in, the better. Suffice it to say that it’s a supremely well-made and brilliantly off-kilter dark British thriller which I file in the “must-see” category if you’re a lover of genre film-making and great cinema in general.

Ben Wheatley’s vision of England is of an ambiguously disturbing world of darkness, alienation, violence and paranoia which is barely concealed behind A relatively innocuous facade of cosy domestic fixtures, strip-lit motorways, bland travel-hotels and matey bonhomie and black humour – and he renders it with meticulous precision.

The performances are frankly outstanding.

It's easy to see why Ben Wheatley's sophomore feature Kill List won over British critics but found it much harder to woo audiences: it's a film with a lot going for it that really doesn't pay off and doesn't stand up to much examination. It's a film of surface pleasures, but of a very low budget indie kind - no big effects, set pieces or glossy visuals but strong characterisation, believable dialogue and excellent performances that give the illusion of eavesdropping on real life, all in the service of a genre that has long since turned into near-parody with over-stylised wisecracks and philosophising and comic book violence.

Starting out as a slice of life kitchen sink drama, becoming a thriller and gradually developing into a horror film, Neil Maskell is malingerer is persuaded by wife MyAnna Buring to get back to work with old army mate Michael Smiley because there's nothing left in the bank account. The work is well paid and local: kill three men in the UK. But these two don't behave like typical movie hitmen, more like commercial travellers, and it's that sense of the everyday observed that gives the film much of its power. Maskell argues with his wife in front of friends at dinner parties, gets pissed off when his credit card is declined at a hotel and finds corporate downsizing immoral while killing for a man who demands the contract be signed in blood. That's not the first hint that things are going to get a bit wickerish, but when his victims thank him even when he sets to work on them with a hammer, it's clear there's more going on than meets the eye. Or so it appears.

The reality is that there's actually less going on than meets the eye, but it's played in such a naturalistic style that it starts to convince you that it just might turn into something really special.

This is an independent horror drama from director and writer Ben Wheatley who has worked with comedians Steve Coogan and Jonny Vegas in the past, but this one does not have a foot in the realm of comedy. It is about two old army buddies, who decided to become hit men after their country no longer needed them. We join Jay (Neil Marshall) a year after a bungled job in Kiev. His acerbic wife Shell (played with brilliant complexity by MyAnna Buring) tells him all their money is gone, as he has not done any `work' for a year. He meanwhile only wants to cure his back in their hot tub; she insists he is making it all up and there is nothing wrong with him.

Then his old mucker turns up, Gal (Michael Smiley). They are having a dinner party and Gal has brought his latest flame Fiona, a mysterious one indeed who seems to enjoy pentangle like symbols. Well after a mass row, Gal invites Jay to go back to work. They agree and set off to meet their client. He gives them a hit list that includes a priest a librarian and an MP. They are not told their crimes and so Jay lets his imagination fill in the blanks. He is still traumatised from past experiences and seems to find some form of mental rehabilitation through inflicting violence. This he goes at with some very worrying gusto indeed.

What unfolds gets darker and darker as the violence escalates and things are seen in their true light. This is one from the school of seventies horror with a sort of cross between the classic `The Wicker Man'and Peter Fonda's lost classic `Race with the Devil' . There is plenty of disturbing violence, language that a docker would baulk at and some brilliantly tense scenes. The soundtrack works too, even though at first I felt it was trying to be too spooky with echoey voices all over the place.

soundtrack to Kill List
The name of the composer is Jim Williams and it seems as if the soundtrack is impossible to get. I contacted somone on a site that had some of his music up there and they wrote back telling me that the Kill List sountrack isn't commercially available. I was very disappointed because I think that... Read More
