The one film in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series I was not looking forward to revisiting was this one. But then again, it’s been several years since I last attempted to watch it, so perhaps time has been kind to it and its gotten better with age? Sadly this is not the case.
In William Friedkin’s newest film, Killer Joe, Matthew McConaughey plays the titular Joe, a dirty cop who moonlights as a hitman. Emile Hirsch plays Chris, the kid who hires Joe to kill his mom, so he and his sister can collect on her life insurance policy and Chris can pay off his gambling debts. Sound pretty straight forward?
