Starring Four Wedding's John Hannah like you've never seen him before, Mona Lisa meets Kill List in the brilliantly dark and moody British crime thriller, The Marker, released on DVD 9th October 2017 from Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment.

Marley Dean Jacobs comes out of prison with one thing on this mind - to find and take care of the girl whose mother he killed during a botched job for gang boss Brendan Doyle. Haunted by the ghost of the dead woman, Marley's noble intentions are hindered by Doyle trying to lure him back into a life of crime.

Reminiscent of Neil Jordan's crime classic Mona Lisa, with a criminal trying to redeem himself after getting out of prison, and recalling the gritty, unnerving feel of Ben Wheatley's cult hit Kill List (and featuring performances from brilliant Brit actors from both those films, Struan Rodger and Cathy Tyson), The Marker is a stunning, singularly dark excursion into the Birmingham criminal underworld that is not for the faint-hearted.

Frederick Schmidt - a Tom Hardy in the making - gives a superbly controlled performance as a man attempting to atone for his sins; while John Hannah, fondly remembered for his role in Four Weddings and a Funeral, quickly obliterates all memories of that film as Schmidt's blisteringly vicious nemesis.

Writer director Justin Edgar keeps a tight hold on proceedings as Schmidt's plans to make amends starts to unravel, imbuing the film with a palpable, discomforting sense of dread and menace, and ramping up the tension to deliver a powerful, violent and hard-to-take-your-eyes-off thriller.

The Marker is an impressive addition to the recent slew of fiercely impressive British crime films including Hyena, Starred Up and Snow in Paradise. But be warned - you'll never look at John Hannah in the same way again.
