Hi all!

Anyone looking forward to seeing Killer Joe? It's a new film by William Friedkin (The Exorcist ) and stars Matthew McConaughey as a tough as nails badass Southern hitman. The trailer looks amazing!

Has anyone had the chance to see this? I've already pre-ordered it! :P

Yes, really looking forward to seeing this again! Have pre-ordered my Blu-Ray.

This film blew me away from start to finish, I loved the theme, the setting, the intensity and (perhaps most of all) the casting - couldn't have been better if you ask me.
I think one of its greatest strengths is the how it's able to pull the emotions involved all about the place. How I personally felt for some characters by the end of the film is never what I expected.

It was mostly a powerful, stylish film which I think was let down by a misguarded final act.  I felt the ending was explotive and tried to encounrge the audience to laugh.

I couldn't agree with you more ElephantBoy...well for the first half :p I thought the ending was brilliant and really quite shocking - especially with the chicken and the way it just ends suddenly. I really enjoyed this film and can't wait for ma DVD of it! Hurry up Monday!
