Two hitmen, old hand Pinner (Billy Clarke) and his edgy young colleague Cully (Jack Gordon), are sent to a country house by a crime boss to kill the man who lives there. One of the two, though, has more than a few skeletons in his closet.
Set in a house gorged in shadow, a jaded assassin and a nervy rookie wait for their target to arrive home. They talk. Trade stories. Then they discover Something In The Shed and with it, their intended victim’s hell-raising identity... This Brit horror has an identikit pitch to Kill List, but bristles with malevolent intrigue. Minor but memorable.
A satisfyingly nasty addition to the British horror cannon.
