Killer Joe (2012) - review

In an attempt to get their hands on some life insurance money it is time to kill mom.  A good old fashioned family film.  As a dark comedy it fails to deliver many laughs, is quite violent and will really make it tough to eat KFC again (if you ever did.)  

McConaughey transforms, keeping this from being a bust.  The rest of the cast delivers solid performances as well.  I am going to guess more people will talk away scratching their heads and annoyed than will enjoy it.  It is not only dark, it also oddly paced and at times just plain uncomfortable. 

If you are in the mood for something dark and different, give a try, but don't tell me I didn't warn you.   6 out of 10
