Kill List (2011)

Directed by: Ben Wheatley
Country: UK

Plot: Nearly a year after a botched job, a hitman takes a new assignment with the promise of a big payoff for three killings.
Review: The excessive outbursts of violence are the mark of British “Kill List”, which fits all right in the horror/thriller genre. The story has Jay as the main character, a psycho thug who lives with his wife and son. Without working for eight months, things at home start to get nasty and Jay, with the help of his friend Gal, decides to accept a job from a strange organization, which consisted in killing three people. What seemed to be a simple job quickly ends as a nightmare, in a movie that reserves all the surprises for the last 15 minutes. The boost was welcomed but not sufficient to put this movie in a top level. Still, we can draw some creeps of it.
