Watch: Official US Trailer for Ben Wheatley's Eerie Thriller 'Kill List'
"They're bad people…" IFC Midnight has debuted via Yahoo the incredibly unsettling trailer for Kill List, a horror thriller from British filmmaker Ben Wheatley unlike anything you have ever seen before. Its been getting rave reviews at festivals all around, and plenty of the quotes you see in this hold up. I've seen it and it's about as eerie and wacky as you can get, but original and brilliant as well. Kill List stars Neil Maskell and Michael Smiley as two contract killers - and that's about all you need to know, and will know, about them. The music, which you'll hear used in this too, is what makes it so unsettling. So what is the Kill List?
Watch the official US trailer for Ben Wheatley's Kill List, available in high def from Yahoo:
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 & Amy Jump, produced by Warp X and Rook Films. This first premiered at the SXSW Film Fest and also played at TIFF and Fantastic Fest, and was picked up by IFC Films. Kill List arrives in limited theaters starting February 3rd next year.
The words and music try to draw you in but I didn't see anything worth using 90 min. of my life on.

A movie trailer that tries to draw people in with "words and music"... how strange. Anyways, I'm intrigued. Personally, I put more faith in rave reviews than first impressions based upon a teaser trailer, but I guess to each their own.

The music used in the trailer is the definition of hyperbole...as if someone is making a huge effort to create a mood, when it's not there..? And of course the trailer itself isn't very illuminating...

I saw nothing to draw me in to go see it. . .js a bunch of random shots trying to be horrific with the music but it doesn't look that good however I will watch it because its horror and I cannot pass up an opportunity to watch a new horror film. . .i will take your word that its good. . .
