Win Movie Passes to see “Killer Joe” (contest)
Hey ‘HOUSTON’ movie fans. I have another movie screening giveaway. Now, AppleTrailers says it’s a comedy…to me…it looks pretty twisted. Not only am I excited about the cast…but the DIRECTOR. Yep…William Friedkin…he directed THE FRENCH CONNECTION and one of my favorite movies…actually it was my FIRST movie my mom ever took me to see…THE EXORCIST.
Opens Friday, August 17th in Houston
When 22-year-old Chris (Emile Hirsch) finds himself in debt to a drug lord, he hires a hit man to dispatch his mother, whose $50,000 life insurance policy benefits his sister Dottie (Juno Temple). Chris finds Joe Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), a creepy, crazy Dallas cop who moonlights as a contract killer. When Chris can’t pay Joe upfront, Joe sets his sight on Dottie as collateral for the job. The contract killer and his hostage develop an unusual bond. Like from a modern-day, twisted fairy tale, “Killer Joe” Cooper becomes the prince to Dottie’s Cinderella. Based on the play by Pulitzer and Tony Award winner Tracy Letts, “Killer Joe” is a garish, provocative black comedy from Academy Award-winning director William Friedkin (The Exorcist, The French Connection) and stars Emile Hirsch, Matthew McConaughey, Juno Temple, Thomas Hayden Church, and Gina Gershon.
