ONE of the films of the year is also one of the most shocking, brutal, funny and mesmerising.
‘Kill List’ is out now on DVD and the Herald has three copies to give away.
Eight months after a disastrous job in Kiev left him physically and mentally scarred, ex-soldier-turned-hitman Jay isn’t faring too well.
Facing mounting bills and problems at home, Jay (Neil Maskell) is pressured by fellow hitman Gal (Michael Smiley) into taking a new assignment – a ‘Kill List’.
The contract killers begin to line up the targets, but all is not as it seems.
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.
Mangling genres left and right, ‘Kill List’ offers an enthralling mix of thriller, middle-class melodrama and disturbing horror.
Be warned this is not a film for the fainthearted – one scene in particular involving a hammer will haunt your dreams for a long while – but it is refreshingly different.
Director Ben Wheatley also made the brilliant ‘Down Terrace’ and is one to watch.
The film is out now on DVD and Bluray. We have teamed up with StudioCanal UK to give away three copies. Strictly over-18s only.
To be in with a chance, see this week’s Herald for details.
