Product Description

KILL LIST - from the acclaimed Director Ben Wheatley (DOWN TERRACE) starring Neil Maskell, Michael Smiley, Myanna Buring, Emma Fryer.

Eight months after a disastrous job in Kiev left him physically and mentally scarred, ex-soldier turned contract killer, Jay, is pressured by his partner, Gal, into taking a new assignment. As they descend into the dark and disturbing world of the contract, Jay begins to unravel once again – his fear and paranoia sending him deep into the heart of darkness.

A British blinder
'A gut-wrenching chiller… the best British genre film in years' ***** Jamie Graham, Total Film

'A strong contender for best British film of the year. Film of the Week. It’s hard to remember a British movie as nerve-shreddingly effective since ‘Dead Man’s Shoes’ in 2004… look for it on ‘Best of British’ lists for a long time to come.'
***** Time Out

'A dark, funny, disturbing picture… With this, Wheatley elevates himself from kill list to A list… he’s among the most promising filmmakers in Britain'
**** Empire

'A bold mash-up of the hit-man genre with an insane Wicker Man-style horror movie'
Kevin Maher, The Times

4.0 out of 5 stars Barbarism begins at home! 23 Sep 2012
By All of them Witches TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Very good. Kill List is one of those films that almost becomes more enjoyable the following day after watching having had time to re-run it in your head. Kill List is a surreal, nightmarish tale of morality and descent into depravity. It has a very tight straightforward plot concerning two ex-army friends involvement as hired killers and their list of targets for their new client. This story is interwoven with a sinister sub-plot involving satanic(?) imagery, some bizarre and unnatural reactions from the killers victims and almost everyone else they encounter, paranoia and barbarity.
Just about every relationship is dysfunctional at its inner core and though despicable in nature the characters also exhibit quite vulnerable even likeable sides early on until the gradual character erosion and exposure to their dark sides kicks in.
I'm a bit suprised at so many low ratings as even given the unusual direction the film takes towards the end the journey there is still fantastically acted and plot wise is very strong, disturbing and thought provoking. I look forward to seeing it again and I think that's pretty much a prerequisite given the subtlety of much of the inferences, unexplained references and symbolic nature of much of the strange events that occur.
A very good character study and plot driven horror that while it thematically resonates with some other films I didn't think it was derivative at all of any of them.

3.0 out of 5 stars "A film about a horrible man who wins a hat" 17 Dec 2012
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unremittingly grim but worth a second watch 20 Aug 2013
By CRE man
Format:DVD
I watched this film on the recommendation of it's countless euphoric reviews. When I first watched this I almost forgot it had been labelled as a horror film and was thoroughly engaged in a nasty crime film, however the last 20 minutes or so reminded me that this was not the case. A lot of comparisons have been drawn to the original wicker man film which I think is massively unfair on both films, yes there's a common element, but I wouldn't say that it's plot or structure has anything remotely similar. It's not an easy watch, and I didn't fathom it's secrets until I watched it again. There is no Hollywood pay off in this film, nothing that neatly ties up all the loose ends and you are left to compute what has happened when the credits roll. A second viewing gives a much broader insight into what happens and without completely ruining the film this is what I urge the one star reviewers to go back to it. It's depressing, it's unpleasant, it's insanely violent in a grim realistic way but definitely worth watching... Twice.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Bad People Should Suffer" 4 Feb 2012
By Tommy Dooley TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
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 Maskell) 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'The Wicker Man - Director's Cut [DVD] and Peter Fonda's lost classic `Race with the Devil'Race With The Devil [DVD].
