Really good film. Quality acting by Temple and McConaughey. There were a few continuity errors but this in no way effects the enjoyment of the film. Its weird and different but that is what makes this a good watch.
Really good but freaking strange in a good way
As others have stated, not horror genre but quite horrific at times. ver
Killer Joe would really be one of the worse guest's if you were to ever throw a dinner party. I mean his table manners are atrocious and if he didn't want the chicken he should have just said so!.
