Kill List is the single most demented horror film I have seen in years, and maybe also the very best. Defying any genre expectations—the first 40 minutes or so take place at a highly naturalistic, Mike Leigh-esque dinner party, for example—and pushing viewers toward a thoroughly baffling blood-soaked ending, there is nothing much here that’s familiar. Which is why it all feels so fresh, so invigorating, and, eventually, so goddamn terrifying.
