Enter Hammer To Nail’s KILL LIST Haiku Contest!

Hey everybody, Kill List is now available on DVD. To celebrate the long-awaited home video release of Ben Wheatley’s genre-sodomizing extravaganza, we have partnered with the generous folks at IFC Films to provide some creative, clever, lucky HTN fan with a sweet limited edish Mondo Poster of the film! All you have to do is… WIN OUR FIRST-EVER HAIKU CONTEST.

That’s right. We figured that since this movie is pretty impossible to summarize with an unlimited word count at one’s disposal, it would be more fun to head in the other direction and set ridiculous linguistic limitations.

For those of you who don’t remember, a haiku consists of three lines—first line, 5 syllables; second line, 7 syllables; third line, 5 syllables (rhyme at own risk). To preserve some semblance of dignity, I will force myself to bang out a stream-of-consciousness one here to provide you with an example…

Kitchen Sink Drama.
British Gangsters Wreak Havoc?
What’s Haps, Wicker Man!

There, it’s that easy. All self-deprecation aside, we trust that you will come up with more clever entries than the one above.

Michael Tully is an award-winning writer/director whose films have garnered widespread critical acclaim, his projects having premiered at some of the most renowned film festivals across the globe. He is also the former (and founding) editor of this site. In 2006, Michael's first feature, COCAINE ANGEL, chronicling a tragic week in the life of a young drug addict, world premiered at the International Film Festival Rotterdam. The film immediately solidified the director as one of Filmmaker Magazine’s "25 New Faces of Independent Film,” a reputation that was reinforced a year later when his follow-up feature, SILVER JEW, a documentary capturing the late David Berman's rare musical performances in Tel Aviv, world-premiered at SXSW and landed distribution with cult indie-music label Drag City. In 2011, Michael wrote, directed, and starred in his third feature, SEPTIEN, which debuted at the 27th annual Sundance Film Festival before being acquired by IFC Films' Sundance Selects banner. A few years later, in 2014, Michael returned to Sundance with the world premiere of his fourth feature, PING PONG SUMMER, an ‘80s set coming-of-age tale that was quickly picked up for theatrical distribution by Gravitas Ventures. In 2018, Michael wrote and directed the dread-inducing genre film DON'T LEAVE HOME, which has been described as "Get Out with Catholic guilt in the Irish countryside" (IndieWire). The film premiered at SXSW and was subsequently acquired by Cranked Up Films and Shudder.
