December 26th Studio Canal will release Ben Wheatley’s KILL LIST on DVD, Blu Ray and Digital Download but on January 4th, then February 3rd 2012 IFC Films is finally giving American film fans a chance to catch the British indie horror-thriller.British or American since its world premiere away back at SXSW start of 2011 everywhere the film went including its British cinematic run we’ve been hearing nothing but praise and when the film played at this years Film 4 Frightfest I was eager to hear the reactions from the Peoples Movies reviewers who watched it, they where very disappointed. So roll on September I got a chance to see the film with high expectations I left the cinema very confused, puzzled but very disappointed. Speaking to other film friends who loved it I asked them to break down the finer points of Kill List they just couldn’t “it’s good!” “why is it good?” I asked “It just is!”,confused still. Thanks to the good folks at Studio Canal they gave me an opportunity to re watch the film on DVD but still i’m confused, I adore horror’s thrillers and I’m one of sucka’s that jump at the so called scary parts but KILL LIST I found it hard to be scared.
Eight months after a disastrous 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), and wife Shel (MYANNA BURING), into taking a new assignment. As they descend into the dark and disturbing world of the contract, Jay beings to unravel once again – his fear and paranoia sending him deep into the heart of darkness.
The new US Trailer is near identical to the UK one however it’s re-edited differently with some new footage thrown in in too. I really wanted to enjoy this even after the advice watch it a few time everything you will understand, when a film has someone or something target a individual what attracts them to that person and how did they find out, if someone has seen this film understands every inch of the film would love to hear from you. KILL LIST stars Neil Maskell, Michael Smiley, MyAnna Buring and Emma Fryer.
