Mevio Movies has the trailer for Killer Joe, starring Matthew McConaughey and Emile Hirsch.
Like a lot of people, Chris Smith (Hirsch) has gotten himself into debt. The problem is, he’s borrowed from the wrong people, and now he has to pay up or die. Killer Joe Cooper is his last hope. A lawman who sidelines as a contract killer, Joe is willing to dispose of Chris’ despicable (and well insured) mother Sharla (Gina Gershon) for a $25,000 fee, but Chris doesn’t have the cash for that either. When Joe takes a liking to Chris’ sister Dottie (Juno Temple), he offers to take her as a “retainer” and things get ever more complicated.
This “totally twisted, deep-fried Texas Redneck trailer park murder story” also features Thomas Haden Church as brother Ansel, and Marc Macaulay as Digger Soames.
Tagline: Available for hire. Terms and conditions will apply.
Rated NC-17 for graphic disturbing content involving violence and sexuality, and a scene of brutality.
