Home Kills

Film (Trailer) – 2023

Business is far from booming for brothers Tom (Cameron Jones) and Mark (Josh McKenzie) the reluctant inheritors of their late Dad's home butchery business. So they entertain a bloody idea; contract killing for a fat fee. But in a small town like Mata, gruesome secrets are hard to keep. In this trailer, the brothers face the messy reality of body removal and get entangled with local gangster Boi Boi (Xavier Horan). Home Kills  — not to be confused with 2000 short film Home Kill —  marks the debut feature for writer/director Hadyn Butler. It was shot in rural Waikato.

Old farmers is one thing bro, but f***ing cops, man?
– Mark (Josh McKenzie) gets cold feet before his next 'hit'
