Synopsis:
Quim (Sbaraglia), an ordinary man, drives his car along the winding isolated lanes leading to the mountains. Suddenly, a shot is fired. He checks his car; he is hit. Somewhere, hidden in the mountains, lurks an unknown assassin, hunting. Gradually, as the nightmare unfolds, Quim realises an unpleasant truth; he is the prey. Running for his life, he encounters Bea (Maria Valverde), a mysterious woman he met earlier, on his way to the mountains. He is suspicious of her, but with the killer in pursuit there is no one else to turn to.
Locked together in mutual distrust, they join forces to try to escape through the hills, desperate to outrun the hunter who is determined they will not escape with their lives.

A thrilling game - King of the Hill review by Jawbreaker

Spoiler Alert
22/01/2010

Spain has been producing some excellent thrillers of late and King of the Hill is another to add to the list. Clearly low budget the film overcomes financial restraints with some inventive camera angles and keeping dialogue to a minimum. This allows the sense of fear, remoteness and helplessness of the situation to force itself to the forefront of the experience. At just 85 minutes in length it makes for rapid and thrilling viewing but sadly the last third of the film is the weakest aspect. Part of the reason is the switch from the hunted to the hunters, which is uncalled for. Especially as the main character made a huge decision and the switch in focus blunted the ramifications of this. King of the Hill leaves you with many questions, partially because some aspects are never fully explained or even tackled. This prevents it from being the equal of the excellent TimeCrimes, but a very good thriller in its own right nevertheless.

Run or die - King of the Hill review by AMG

Spoiler Alert
29/08/2010

Unfussy and gripping.A film reminiscent of Spielberg's Duel, except the identities of the assassins are revealed about two thirds of the way through, some loss of tension at that point.
