Storyline

After serving jail time for a mysterious crime, Bill and Karl get out of jail and become preoccupied with figuring out who turned them in to the police. On top of that, the "family business" is on the rocks, and the motley crew of criminals who operate out of Down Terrace aren't feeling terribly trusting of one another. It might look like an ordinary house, but at Down Terrace, the walls are closing in... Written by Newport Beach Film Festival

Great FIlm!!! *just kidding*
6 October 2015 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

It's a movie you will enjoy only if you enjoy being cheated.

The music is awful, and it's the only thing I thought it was well executed. The actors are good, but the characters are not worthy. It's never rally developed and it look like a collage of ideas from everywhere with a not really good result. The movie feels cheap instead of home made (I adore cheap films when you don't think about the budget while you are watching) but also, it feels like the people involved never had the courage to accept it wasn't material for a full length movie, maybe a short might have worked well.

Dark comedy never really comes, not at all, since it's not very well justified (not in a poetic, non-sense way), it is just bad written, not absurd, or evil, or with a commentary in human nature, it just repeats what dark humor geniuses have done, without understanding why humor has to be black, but also humor (like Swift, or Marquis de Sade's writing) it felt so superficial that the only funny thing around this movie, is people saying "if you don't think is funny, it's because you are dumb".

This movie is, in my opinion, a waste; of good ideas, of good actors and a waste of the viewers experience, and I feel guilty cause I've spent some time writing about it.

Just watch it if you LOVED Kill List, the whole thing, even the lazy ending.
