I’m still not entirely sure why William Friedkin’s latest, “Killer Joe” has been slapped with an NC-17. Nothing I’ve seen from the trailers, and now these three clips, would seem to indicate it’s any more deserving of the rating than, well, 99% of the Rated R movies out there. According to the MPAA, the film got hit with the NC-17 rating for “graphic aberrant content involving violence and sexuality, and a scene of brutality”. “Aberrant”? Huh. Anyways, check out three new clips from the movie below.

When 22-year-old Chris finds himself in debt to a drug lord, he hires a hit man to dispatch his mother, whose $50,000 life insurance policy benefits his sister Dottie. Chris finds Joe Cooper, a creepy, crazy Dallas cop who moonlights as a contract killer. When Chris can’t pay Joe upfront, Joe sets his sight on Dottie as collateral for the job. The contract killer and his hostage develop an unusual bond. Like from a modern-day, twisted fairy tale, “Killer Joe” Cooper becomes the prince to Dottie’s Cinderella.

“Killer Joe” stars Matthew McConaughey, Emile Hirsch, Thomas Haden Church, Juno Temple, Gina Gershon, and opens in (very) limited release July 27, 2012, since most theaters don’t show NC-17 films.
