Kill List

Kill List manages to get just the right amount to fail.

In an attempt to make a socio-realistic horror movie, the director of Kill List attempts to walk the thin line of independent cinema and gore-horror. His failure leaves the movie as one that has the shocks (the movie is violent and bloody), but little to appease those looking for a smart or even exploitative horror. Two killers-for-hire attempt to finish a job given them, but stumble after a few kills. This is mis-mashed with domestic issues and some occultists. The movie would probably benefit with more or even less of the horror. But it manages to get just the right amount to fail.

Rating: ★½☆☆☆
