I had hoped for an interesting thriller since the plot made it sound interesting, but I just couldn't get into the movie or characters and in the end I was disappointed by the entire thing. Maybe a second viewing would make me see it in a different light, but as it stands, I'm left wondering what I missed in this one.

An unusual slow-burner that defies genre category and evolves into a strange tale all it's own. The unexpected turns and thrilling latter half make up for the deliberately slow paced and slightly uninteresting first half. If you give it time, the payoff is rewarding.

There's not much to say about this film except that it doesn't seem like a horror movie at the beginning, which is why I love it. The largest bulk of the film is introducing the characters, which is done very well. From the first kill you kind of begin cheering the killers on and you also begin wondering why all the victims are so humble and thankful, but things take a dark a turn near the end. I don't want to ruin a good movie, so I'll just say that the last twenty minutes are extremely claustrophobic and more frightening than any other film I've seen this year. This is easily in my top five horror movies.

Kill List beginnt mit verbaler Gewalt am Tisch während des Abendessens, steigert sich zu eigentlicher Gewalt in einem Killer-Szenario und schliesslich zu metaphysischer Gewalt. Kill List steckt voller Rätsel und ist auch noch total verrückt! Am meisten verunsichert aber, dass man sich permanent in einem viel besseren Film wähnt, als es Kill List in Wahrheit ist. Der Film beginnt mit dem Treffen zweier Paare: Die Männer mittleren Alters, die Frauen jünger. Jay (Neil Maskell) versucht verzweifelt, Arbeit zu finden, um seine ukrainische Frau und das Kind zu unterstützen. Sein Freund Gal (Michael Smiley) hat ein Angebot, das viel Geld bringt: Einen Mord. Beide arbeiteten zuvor als Killer. Nun erleben wir Jay und Gal während einer Geschäftsreise. Sie checken in ein Hotel ein, aber …

Kill List

Kill List is a strange film to be sure. But it's also a wonderful slowburn where things become stranger and stranger and the viewer is left in the dark just like the protagonist. Usually films dealing with the occult are either over the top or silly, but this one is more along the lines of the original wicker man, it slowly creeps under your skin until you feel just as disoriented and frustrated as the main character. Even if the ending is somewhat predictable and a little bit of a disappointment, everything leading up to it is very well done, great acting, with a very unsettling atmosphere. You may need subs though, as the accent can be very hard to understand. Still Kill List is a wonderfully stage, at times truly scary, genre piece..
At the end you'll have plenty to …
