Directed by Ben Wheatley (Down Terrace) comes a unique British thriller come horror, Kill List. A couple of teasers have been released by Optimum Releasing earlier this week, and you can view both of them below, but the full length trailer arrived yesterday. Thankfully the trailer does not let on much of the story and gives nothing away, so the film is still pretty much a mystery in terms of what actually happens, which is a good thing. We have the plot details for you, which again do not give much away apart from the bare essentials, but this film looks stunning. Inventive and quite original in taking the story of a contract killer onto the deepest, darkest realms of horror.
You might recognise lead actor Neil Maskell from great British films such as Rise of the Footsoldier, The Football Factory, Doghouse and Bonded by Blood, but here he gives a chilling and unsettling performance as Jay. The film is set to be released here in the UK September 2nd, read on for the plot details and the earlier teaser trailers will follow:
Eight months after a disastrous job in Kiev left him physically and mentally scarred, ex-soldier turned contract killer Jay (Maskell), is pressured by his partner Gal (Smiley), into taking a new assignment. The film follows as they descend into the dark, disturbing world of the contract, Jay begins to unravel once again — his fear and paranoia sending him deep into the heart of darkness.
