BLACK comedy thriller Killer Joe (18) tells the tale of drug dealer Chris (Emile Hirsch), who has his valuable stash stolen by his mother.
Desperate and in debt, he hatches a plan to kill her for her life insurance, and is helped by crooked cop Detective Joe Cooper (played by Matthew McConaughey).
But things turn nasty when Chris’ sister forms a very strange relationship with the hit man.
Killer Joe, out tomorrow (Fri), is based on the play by Pulitzer winner Tracy Letts, and is a return for acclaimed director William Friedkin (The Exorcist, The French Connection).
