Killer Joe

Killer Joe

Murder never tasted so good.
  • Of course I wear gloves ... you don't expect me to get my hands dirty, do you?

When a young man finds himself in debt to a drug lord, he hires a hit man to knock off his mother, hoping to collect on her life insurance. The cop he hires to do the job wants payment up front, which is not going to happen. Instead, they agree on using his younger, virgin sister as collateral until payment can be made. The contract killer and his hostage develop an unusual bond, which ultimately leads to complications. Note that this film was re-cut in the USA to move from NC-17 to R, and features (if that is the correct word) numerous violent and sexual scenes.


100 minutes, No persons under 18 (Language, Sex, Nudity, Violence)
