Next up on MeFi Horror Club: Kill List, 2011. Discussion to be posted next Friday 28 November.

(If this looks like a duplicate from early this morning, it's because I think I put it in the wrong place, mods please feel free to delete one or the other. If this looks like a duplicate from further back because we already did this one and I missed it somehow, please let me know and I'll re-pick. I saw that it had been mentioned once or twice but couldn't find a post on it.)

Brief summary: Events take a darker turn as a contract killer (Neil Maskell) and his business partner (Michael Smiley) carry out a new assignment.

Kill List is directed by by Ben Wheatley, whose 2013 film A Field in England has been featured here previously (and whose 2012 film Sightseers has not).

Rotten Tomatoes summary (76%) here, IMDB page here. Ebert gave it three stars. Nominated for several British Independent Film Awards (Wikipedia link, mind the spoilers if you scroll up). Kill List is probably best without advance knowledge, so be careful of overly detailed reviews or trailers. For example this trailer is pretty good but I'd stop it at about 1:00 if you want to go into the movie cold.

Available on iTunes at least and no doubt elsewhere.

Part of the MeFi Horror Club, guidelines for which may be found here. Interested in making the next pick? Please memail me or comment below.

I've been out of the Horror Club loop recently, but I think you just pulled me back in with this one. I liked A Field in England, and I like movies that are best watched with no advance foresight.
