Ben Wheatley Talks A FIELD IN ENGLAND, Destiny, And His Characters

I first became aware of Ben Wheatley when I was assigned to write an essay on his film Down Terrace (2009) for Magill's Cinema Annual. What struck me while watching it was how carefully balanced and powerful it was and...

ScreenAnarchy's KILL LIST Review Roundup

Ben Wheatley's Down Terrace was a dark, weird, funky, concoction with some of the blackest comedy (and least penetrable accents) I'd seen and heard in recent years. So when Mr. Wheatley's followup film, Kill List was scheduled for its World...

US Trailer For Ben Wheatley's KILL LIST

Unquestionably one of the best films of 2011, US audiences have had a long wait for Ben Wheatley's Kill List. The wait is a bit ironic given that the film premiered on US shores at the SXSW festival but it's...

FRIGHTFEST 2011: KILL LIST Review

I'm torn by Kill List. Ben Wheatley's second feature, following the much-lauded Down Terrace, is equal parts impressive and frustrating. With a divisive piece of narrative elusiveness, the third act will either leave you intrigued or irritated depending on how...

Eerie First Teaser For Ben Wheatley's KILL LIST

SXSW 2011: KILL LIST Review

It's the aftershock that kills you. Emotional tremors have clearly been rocking the lives of Jay (Neil Maskell) and Shel (MyAnna Buring) for some time, probably years before the beginning of Kill List, directed by Ben Wheatley. Their marriage is fraying...

SXSW 2011: Exclusive KILL LIST Image Goes WICKER MAN On Your Ass
