This mind-blowing genre concoction from Ben Wheatley blends the ingredients of family drama, hit-man action-thriller, and terrifying psychological horror to tell the story of an ex-soldier turned contract killer’s plunge into the heart of human darkness. Eight months after a disastrous hit job in Kiev left him physically and mentally scarred, Jay (Neil Maskell) is pressured by his partner, Gal (Michael Smiley), into taking a new assignment. As they descend into the bizarre, disturbing world of the contract, Jay’s world begins to unravel and fear and paranoia send him reeling toward a horrifying point of no return.
