Freeview film of the day : friday 11th of March

Kill List (2011 91min.) [Film4 10.45pm &+1]

Horror starring Neil Maskell and MyAnna Buring. Ex-soldier-turned-contract killer Jay is talked into doing one last job by friend and fellow hitman Gal. But as the bodies pile up, it soon becomes apparent the pair have become involved in a situation beyond their control.

Terrific British low budget thriller/horror film that casts back to the glory days of Hammer for its inspired air of creepy menace and moments of genuine shock.

Superly directed by Ben Wheatley, off the back of the equally striking Down Terrace, it's a mixture of gangster film, Mike Leigh style improvised domesticity and grand guignol horror.

A thoroughly engaging and satisfying film from beginning to end.

First of a triple bill of films directed by Ben Wheatley : it's followed by the black comedy Sightseers (2012) at 12.35am and the hallucinogenic A Field In England (2013) at 2.15am
