Ben Wheatley film. Opens with some of that low key British Film thing where people are having regular domestic times with an undercurrent of Something Bad. The hitman and his mate get a contract to kill three people in what seems a fairly routine task for them. And, lo, it starts to go wrong and things unravel. Wicker Man vibes increase, along with the gore.

I found myself thinking through much of the last third that events were a bit ludicrous, but then several hours later working backwards from the conclusion realising how they're all kinda plausible actually if you accept the setup. And even that, as ridiculous as it kind of appears on the face of it, when you read of that Nxivm group and things well maybe it's not even so hugely farfetched after all!

I enjoyed it well enough, though I thought A Field in England was much better.

Yeah I enjoyed that one as well. Nicely done on what must've been a pittance of a budget.
