Product Details

Starring Vince Edwards (City of Fear) and Herschel Bernardi (The Front), Murder by Contract is a bleak investigation into the mind of a professional killer. Tasked with murdering a witness in a criminal trial, contract killer Claude has second thoughts when the target turns out to be a woman... because women cost double. Killing is just a business to Claude, but when he tries to quit, the hunter become the hunted. The once-blacklisted writer-director team of Ben Maddow (Framed) and Irving Lerner (City of Fear) bring you this stylish, minimalist, and eccentric film noir, beautifully photographed by Lucien Ballard (Bullfighter and the Lady, The Wild Bunch), and championed by Martin Scorsese who has described it as one of his biggest influences.
