IFC have unveiled the final, full-length trailer for Ben Wheatley‘s British horror, Kill List, this week, boasting quotes that it will “Unhinge the hardest of genre fans”, “Leave your bones rattling”, and “May well leave audiences speechless”.
Filmed in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England, the film follows British soldier Jay (Neil Maskell) who returns home from a botched job in Kiev. Eight months later, an old friend, Gal (Michael Smiley), a contract killer, persuades him to take a new assignment with the promise of a big payoff after three assassinations. Although the hits start off without incident, Jay’s disturbed past surfaces as things begin to unravel and Jay spins out of control during jobs, revealing his paranoia as he is plunged into the heart of darkness.
Kill List premiered at SXSW before making its way to the TIFF earlier this year, and opens in Los Angeles and New York theaters on 3rd February, 2012, and will arrive on VOD on 4th January. You can watch the new trailer below:
