Plot Jay (Neil Maskell), a freelance assassin running short of funds, is nagged by his wife Shel (MyAnna Buring) into taking on a new client. Jay and his partner Gal (Michael Smiley) accept a ‘kill list’ of three successive targets. As Jay and Gal execute the commissions, it becomes apparent that the list is longer than it seems.
Verdict A dark, funny, disturbing picture — not for the squeamish, though it’s as given to subtle creepiness as outright horrors. With this, Wheatley elevates himself from kill list to A list. Right now, he’s among the most promising filmmakers in Britain.
