This movie made me want to see the play, if it was only one act long and I could hide my face in my hands as it went on. Extremely brutal.

You'll never look at a chicken leg the same way again. Trust me. Matthew McCoughaney was downright evil and scary in this movie, even though he looked gorgeous. One scene was VERY intense. You'll see.

Friedkin's hypnotic adaptation of Tracy Letts' dark play follows on his previous adaptation the same author's Bug. Both are among his greatest films, which is saying a lot given his early successes (Boys in the Band, The French Connection, The Exorcist). The whole cast is awesome; Gina Gerscholm fearlessly commits to a quite literally punishing role, and McConaughy is downright chilling. The denouement is genuinely, invigoratingly shocking (and so wrong). This is definitely not one to watch with the family. But recommended for those curious about where their own comfort levels lie. To award Killer Joe a single star because of its taboo violence is like giving The Exorcist one star because one disapproves of demonic possession (or the Catholic Church). Formally, this is consummate film-making any cinephile should appreciate.

If you dislike Emile Hirsch, then you will probably love this movie since it is essentially about him getting the everlasting bujeezus beat out of him over and over again. Incredibly good acting, but an awful, bloody, disturbing and seemingly pointless plot.

Worst movie ever created. Don't waste the time to see.

Looking for a violently misogynistic flick? Look no further! This level of disrespect toward women is NOT cool. Totally disheartening. Killer Joe was probably the worst movie I saw all year.

Really liked this surreal black comedy. Matthew McC is good as usual, as are Thomas Hayden Church (one of my favourite character actors) and Gina Gershon. Might not be something to watch with your mum (especially as the plot hinges on a son hiring a hoit man to bump off his mother).
