John Hunter takes a job as a hit man for a Mob syndicate, but his attacks of conscience, his odd dialogue about doing this for his family (he lives alone), and his continuous returning to a woman from his past suggest that there's more to him than meets the eye. Herod, the hard-nosed boss of the killing team, alternately fascinates and repels John. One night, Herod asks him to accompany Gillian, Herod's younger sister, for an evening out. The next day, John gets the word to kill her. When he refuses and instead tries to run with her and a considerable amount of Herod's assets, the stage is set for a showdown and the revelation of who's who. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

User Reviews

An Outstanding Noir Thriller!
14 April 2006 | by filmbuff1974See all my reviews

John Hunter is an assassin who joins an underground organization called The Guild in order to get revenge on those who killed his parents.All is not what it appears to be and before you find out what really goes down you'll have been taken through a real thrill ride.This film does not disappoint!

I picked up this film in a 99 cent store in the Bronx.It was packaged cheaply and I thought it was some low quality film that might be worth a look to kill a evening. But the real mystery is why such an outstandingly written,acted and directed film was packaged in a cardboard sleeve and sold on a rack for a dollar?
