Director Ben Wheatley is a tough one to nail down. You truly have no idea what to expect when viewing his films. They often bend genre rules and take you in a direction you would never have expected, and he doesn’t tend to stick to one genre. In interviews he states that Kill List is most definitely a Horror film (which is great as more often than not Horror directors deny the genre label because they’re afraid of being pigeonholed), but it doesn’t really feel like Horror. Until it does.
