Killer Joe is the 2011 adaptation of Tracy Letts' 1993 play of the same name directed by William Friedkin and starring Matthew McConaughey, Emile Hirsch, Juno Temple, Thomas Haden Church and Gina Gershon. Although critically acclaimed, the film suffered at the box office due to it being rated NC-17 and Friedkin holding out on trimming the film down to an R-rating. An R-rated cut, which is four minutes shorter, was eventually released.
The following weapons were used in the film Killer Joe:
