A pulpy cocktail of mayhem, sex and betrayal, KILLER JOE marks a glorious return for director William Friedkin (THE EXORCIST, THE FRENCH CONNECTION). Faithfully adapted from Tracey Letts’ 1993 debut play, Killer Joe is soaked with lurid, disturbing potential; some scenes go well beyond the bounds of good taste. But, for the not-so-squeamish, that is also its pleasure.
When drug dealer Chris (Emile Hirsch) has his stash of drugs stolen from him by his mother (Gina Gershon), he and his father (Thomas Haden Church) hatch a plan to murder her in order to collective her life insurance and cover his debt. Enter Detective "Killer" Joe Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), a hired hit man with the seductive manners of a Southern gentleman, who will do the job - for an upfront fee…or sister Dottie (Juno Temple) as sexual collateral. She eventually accepts her role as Joe’s bounty, but not without exacting her own price.
“Like a deep-fried Twinkie at the State Fair of Texas, KILLER JOE is gooey, flavorful and bad for you. Dig in.” – Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News
