    Kill List

    ★★★½

    Kill List has been a movie I've been curious about for a while now. I had it recommended to me as a movie that starts as one thing and suddenly changes gears partway through, and as I saw some of Ben Wheatley's later films I was very intrigued.

    The beginning is unsettling purely just because of the family drama that is on full display. The performances here are great and definitely set the tone for the stress of the rest…

    This one was a lot of fun. The subtle way the tone changes over the course of the movie from slightly goofy and comedic to very bleak and dark is really well done. A few twists I didn't really see coming help keep this one moving along at a solid pace. Performances were really solid and it's easy to start to feel actually worried about the main characters. I'd definitely watch this one again - it feels like one of those where knowing the whole story can help catch little things along the way on a rewatch.

    I have a fond memory of this movie coming on TV when I was in high school, and my mom (who does not really watch movies at all) told me how much she loved it when it first came out in 1988. We chilled and watched it and it was a ton of fun. I probably have a bias in favor of this movie because of that, but I still really love this one.
