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'm slightly phased by the number of people who say that they don't understand what's going on in this movie.

The film starts as a sort of gritty family drama but takes a sinister turn when the girlfriend of one of the main characters goes to the bathroom and does something... unexpected. That's a big clue as to where the film is going and it continues in that direction when the main characters meet the man contracting them and when the "victims" don't act as you'd think they would,

If you're the sort of person who likes simple things and needs to have anything more complicated than I love Lucy explaining to you then this movie isn't for you. Note that there's extreme violence.

It's a straightforward occult / horror film and in my very humble opinion the direction the film is going to go in is clearly telegraphed from the time the lady goes to the bathroom.

It may not be for everyone but I thought it was a good movie. I'd have had a different ending though.

Format: DVD
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.

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.

I saw a screening of this last night and was very impressed. While some other reviewers here have criticized the pacing, I didn't have a problem with it. As long as I'm into the characters, I don't mind how long a story takes to unfold, and I was engrossed by the people in this film.

It's something of a hybrid film, a gritty British gangster movie that slowly morphs into something more horrific. Nearly every element of the production is fantastic, from the acting to the score to the cinematography. It is shockingly violent at times, at other moments thrilling, and, surprisingly, quite funny upon occasion.

What gives me pause is the writing. It isn't bad by any stretch of the imagination: the characters are fully fleshed out, the story is compelling, and everything moves along nicely. Where the trouble comes is in the ending. You might have heard some buzz about it being a shocker, and it sort of was. Part of the reason for that, though, is because it receives the faintest wisp of a set up in all the story's prior events. While I certainly felt the movie was building up to something akin to what the ending was, and I recognized moments when clues were being dropped, I was never able to put them together.

As the credits rolled, I wished the theater would start the film again from the beginning, so that I could apply my newfound knowledge to the same scenes I had just witnessed and possibly make more sense of the whole thing. I believe a second viewing would help me answer the question:

Was this film pretty great? A nasty little genre thriller, clever in how it sets itself up, never holding the audience's hand too tightly?

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
