Trailer Alert: The Kill List

The British make pretty darn good genre movies. Dog Soldiers. Severance. The Disappearance of Alice Creed. The lists goes on and on. So when a film comes out of the U.K. that's heralded as the best British genre movie in years, it's worth paying attention.

Fortunately for us colonists IFC Films has picked up the rights to Ben Wheatley's thriller The Kill List, which will premier at FrightFest 2011 later this year.

The plot? The film follows an ex-soldier turned contract killer as he enters a dark and disturbing world. What other kind of world is there for hitmen anyway?

The preview is a bit jarring and it's hard to tell exactly what is going on, but I'm intrigued. And the film is certainly getting a lot of praise. Chances are it will end up being reviewed on our radio show/podcast.

Check out the trailer below and judge for yourselves, Basement Dwellers.
