Ben Wheatley follows up his heralded Down Terrace with another inventive, genre-flouting film. Taking a non-traditional approach to the horror genre, Kill List begins with an uncomfortable dinner party with two hit men in attendance and takes several different dramatic (and, eventually, quite bloody) turns after that. Moving effortlessly from kitchen-sink realism to stakeout humor and ending up in the occult territory of The Wicker Man, Wheatley's film is consistently unsettling, surprising and shocking. As the London Guardian puts it, "If Ricky Gervais or Mike Leigh made a horror film, it might look something like this."
