There is something horribly wrong with the bodies found in the dark city streets. Some are mutilated while others have the Price equation (w?z = Cov (w,z) = ?wzVz) carved into their flesh. Detective Eddie Argo and his new partner Helen Westcott unearth the meaning of the odd equation and realise each victim is being offered a gruesome choice: kill your loved ones, or be killed. Before long it becomes clear that the perpetrator has suffered a similar fate and is now coping by seeking a way to solve this philosophical dilemma.

    Release and reception

    The Killing Gene movie scenes It s always nice to see a low budget British movie offer something refreshing and relatively unique I m not trying to convince you it s the perfect movie

    The film received generally positive reviews. Review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a score of 71% based on reviews from 14 critics.

    CHUD.com said of the film, "Director Tom Shankland paints a grimy portrait that fits well with the Clive Bradley script. It is a great debut for both filmmakers who created a movie that works on almost every level."

    DVD Talk wrote, "But lets not kid ourselves: This is a nasty horror thriller that has a Class of 1984 feel to it, although it has the most in common with the Saw series (even the line "Oh yes, there will be blood!" is morphed into "But there will be pain!"). Its not quite as outlandishly brutal, but its still pretty mean."

    Fortean Times said, "While the plot twists rarely come as a surprise, the films grimy feel and effective pacing, and a gripping - if occasionally rather over-exaggerated - central performance by Skarsgard, make this a genuinely thrilling venture into Se7en territory, despite the unfortunate silliness of the title."
