The Philadelphia Film Society will be screening KILLER JOE, which had its World Premiere at the Venice International Film Festival and North American Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, for members on Wednesday, August 7, 2012. Intern Sam Denitz got a special chance to see the film in advance and in celebration of the upcoming screening, we are posting Sam’s thoughts on the film BEFOREHAND to let you know what you’re getting yourself into.

PLEASE NOTE: The film KILLER JOE is rated NC-17 for “graphic aberrant content involving violence and sexuality, and a scene of brutality” – it is a difficult film to watch at times for some, but it is certainly a one-of-a-kind WILD ride that people will be talking about for months!
