Kill Face


As Halloween night falls in a ruined British city, four inept schemers have a plan. Steeped in gambling debts, Oscar is convinced that a one-off big score with two career criminals, “Stuntman” and “Bizzo”, is the solution to his problems. Stuntman claims to have devised a “criminal masterpiece”, but he’s keeping the details quiet until go-time. Oscar overlooks this curious secrecy, believing Stuntman to be a criminal genius. But his long-suffering friend and accomplice, Mikey, isn’t so sure. Having spotted Stuntman dancing naked on the roof and speaking in tongues, Mikey suspects both the credentials and motives of this supposed mastermind. Consequently, he and Oscar bicker incessantly while manning the HQ, even having a wrestle to determine who’s more “manly”. But it’s all academic: with vicious debtors closing in, Oscar has little choice but to trust in the plan, whatever it may be. Meanwhile, Stuntman has dropped acid, acquired a pistol, and started cackling at the moon. Bizzo, having followed Stuntman around town on a series of bizarre underworld encounters, begins to question the latter’s sanity and makes plans of his own. As zero hour approaches, the four protagonists are united and Stuntman’s audacious plan is finally revealed. At Stuntman’s insistence, to get “psyched”, the group don animal masks and engage in ritualistic dancing. Events soon go south, however, when Stuntman accidently fires the pistol into his own face. The old plan is off. A new plan is needed – and fast. With a corpse on their hands, the group will have to overcome petty differences and profound idiocy if they hope to escape with their lives and liberty intact.
