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!

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!
