In a surprising and well received departure for Matthew McConaughey, Billy Friedkin's KILLER JOE chops its way onto DVD, Blu-ray and various VOD platforms December 21st. Both The Arrow and Eric W. dug the flick quite a bit, so it's our honor to present to you the red-band trailer that's just been released in conjunction with the upcoming home video date. Spin that sucker underneath!
Based on the play by Tracy Letts, the film follows a hapless young man (Emile Hirsch), already up to his neck in trouble, who hires a cop by day, hitman by night (an excellent Matthew McConaughey) to kill his monther for the insurance money. Unable to pay the fee upfront, he puts his sister (Juno Temple) down as collateral, and so begins a twisted tale that gets even more out there with each turn of the plot. We've got an exclusive clip from the film, in which Hirsch's character -- who you can tell from the brusies is already dealing with some serious business -- tries to cancel the transaction with the very calm, cool and collected Killer Joe.
Gina Gershon also stars!
