KILLER JOE is a Southern Gothic story of the Smith family set in Dallas, Texas. Drug debts have left Chris Smith in desperate need of a lot of money so he decides to ‘off’ his alcoholic mother for the insurance money. What unfolds is a display of dysfunctional characters, and a sordid succession of psychological brutality. (
