Kill List Trailer

Who is on the Kill List? A full international trailer for an indie horror-thriller that has been sweeping the festival circuit hit the web recently and its about time we feature it. The film is called Kill List, directed by Ben Wheatley, and the trailer comes from Bloody-Disgusting. It's essentially about an ex-soldier turned contract killer who goes crazy and, well, some crazy shit goes down. The film has been receiving quite a bit of praise, including an 8/10 review from our own Jeremy plus an A- from indieWire. I'm still not sure what's even going on in this, but I'm certainly interested. Check out this eerie indie trailer if you haven't seen it yet.

Watch the first UK trailer for Ben Wheatley's Kill List, embedded via Bloody-Disgusting:

Beginning 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 into taking a tough new assignment. As they descend into the dark, disturbing world of the contract, Jay slowly begins to unravel once again.

Kill List is directed by British filmmaker Ben Wheatley, of the indie comedy Down Terrace as well as work on "The Wrong Door" and "Ideal". The screenplay was co-written by Wheatley and his wife Amy Jump. It was produced by Warp X and Rook Films. This premiered at the SXSW Film Fest and was picked up by IFC Midnight. No US release date has been set, but Kill List hits UK theaters in September. Visit their website.

    i've been wanting to see this ever since i first read about it on BD. i love the intensity and feeling of forboding this trailer brings out - i looking forward to seeing this.

      Same here Beevis!People are saying this is the most original story to come out this year, and to make it even better is that it's a horror/thriller movie!
  • Brandon
    Definitely will be checking this out. That is how you make a trailer for a thriller!
  • It's not a British film unless it has gangsters, hitmen and violence in it. Because every seond person in Britain is a hitman and the others are just victims... I think it's the only way to get funding to make a movie.

    I thought Bridget Jones and Withnail and I were pretty violent as well.
    • Withnail and I was made in 1987 Harris, Bridget Jones is cinematic greatness and something to be truly proud of.But surely you agree that the vast majority of films that get made have an element of Mockney Gangsterisms and or drug and alcohol abuse with a dash of misery thrown in too, I 'm not saying it's like Mary Poppins here or anything, just a bit unrealistic.
  • Looks great
  • Mw1tt5
    im a bit put off by the fact that the 'hitman' look too much like ricky gervais...maybe its just me?
  • A Villa88
    is this a drama, horror or action movie??
  • That music was definitely cool.
