Synopsis

When 22-year-old Chris (Emile Hirsch) finds himself in debt to a drug lord, he hires a hit man to dispatch his mother, whose $50,000 life insurance policy benefits his sister Dottie (Juno Temple). Chris finds Joe Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), a creepy, crazy Dallas cop who moonlights as a contract killer. When Chris can't pay Joe upfront, Joe sets his sight on Dottie as collateral for the job. The contract killer and his hostage develop an unusual bond. A modern-day, twisted fairy tale, 'Killer Joe' Cooper is the prince to Dottie's Cinderella. Based on the play by Pulitzer and Tony Award winner Tracy Letts, Killer Joe is a garish, provocative black comedy from Academy Award-winning director William Friedkin (The Exorcist, The French Connection) and stars Matthew McConaughey, Emile Hirsch, Juno Temple, Gina Gershon and Thomas Haden Church.

    They should have made Joe, Killer Joe, and Mud into one ultimate movie and called it Killer Joe Mud.

    Killer Joe is one odd, twisted, messed up movie.

    A movie 'expert' told me to watch Killer Joe. I feel tainted by stupid immorality and need to say 1.000 Gratitudes for Goodness.
