After another failed attempt to commit suicide, hapless writer William addresses the services of hired assassin Leslie, the inexorable angel of death from the Killers Guild, an organization that is ready to help anyone who needs a quick and painless death. Leslie has a good heart, but an unsteady hand. The authorities want to retire him, and the contract that has turned up is the only chance to postpone the inevitable. However, the case intervenes in the fortuity. The fate suddenly smiled to William: he falls in love. Written by Peter-Patrick76 (peter-patrick@mail.com)

Did You Know?


William states that he attempted to kill himself seven times, ten if you count his cries for help. They are; 1) Hanging; but the ceiling light fixture could not support his weight. 2) Gassing; by using a water hose to direct a vehicle's exhaust into its interior, but the vehicle broke down. 3) Booze & Pills; but the combination made him sick and he vomited it all out. 4) Electrocution; by standing in a bathtub of water and dropping a toaster in it, but the electrical charge was only strong enough to short out his fuse. 5) Stepping into traffic, but the vehicle that hit him was an ambulance and he received immediate medical attention and survived. 6) Jumping' William attempted to throw himself off a bridge but was caught by a passing boat managing to only break his finger. 7) Gassing, again; He stuck his head in his oven with the gas turned all the way up, but hadn't paid his gas bill so the gas ran out.

He also mentioned throwing himself into a lion's pit at the zoo, but the lions were sleepy that day and he had to climb out ten minutes later. See more »

Best story ever
10 December 2018 | by claudioprivateSee all my reviews

This is the best story I have seen in many years I like the fact that the story is better than the effects. Storytelling is an unforgotten thing the thing however in this movie it really brings that story
