Christopher Webster [Celluloid 09.15.11] movie trailer news thriller



Matthew McConaughey, Emile Hirsch and Thomas Haden Church topline William Friedkin's new "Southern Gothic" thriller Killer Joe. Friedkin hasn't made a feature since 2006's Bug which garnered mixed reviews. But, besides some fleeting controversy over what some have considered "excessive violence" in Killer Joe, reviews out of TIFF 2011 seem to be fairly strong, so I'm looking forward to this new outing from the director of classics like The Exorcist and The French Connection.

Synopsis:
When a debt puts a young man's life in danger, he turns to putting a hit out on his evil mother in order to collect the insurance.

Check out the trailer below.

To Live and Die in LA is one of the 80's most underrated movies. Really looking forward to this one

William Friedkin also made a movie that came out in 1977 (I remember because lines were to long to get into Star Wars) it was called Sorcerer and has been one of my top picks ever since.

Sorceror is a remake of a classic 1950's french thriller called Wages of Fear. Both movies are fantastic. I highly recommend visiting the imdb.com's trivia section for Sorceror.

I spent a few evenings this summer with Friedkin... we didn't have a beer together... and I was alone in the room... but he was there... and he took my breath away with Sorceror... I am looking forward to possibly a great performance by Matthew McConaughey... if there is one thing that Friedkin does it is that he gets performers to stand on their toes and deliver...
