Howdy, Dork Shelfers. Are you guys and gals hungry for another contest in Vancouver and Toronto? Well, Dork Shelf and the wonderful people at VVS Films want to send 10 lucky winners and a guest of their choosing to an advance screening of the “twisted deep-fried Texas redneck trailer park murder story” KILLER JOE on Thursday, August 9th at 10:00pm.
From acclaimed director William Friedkin (The Exorcist, The French Connection) and Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Tracy Letts comes the story of Chris Smith (Emile Hirsch), a good ol’ boy that’s into some bad people for a large amount of money. With the help of his dimwitted father (Thomas Hayden Church), the pair decide to hire a hit man to kill Chris’ mother for some insurance money. The man they hire is the ultra-smooth and no nonsense Killer Joe (Matthew McConaughey), who only waves his upfront fee for use of Chris’ sister (Juno Temple) as a “retainer”.
Killer Joe opens in theatres on Friday, August 10th, but we want to send you to see it first. To enter, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with KILLER JOE and YOUR CITY in the subject line. Please only one entry per household. For additional chances to win, like the contest announcement on our Facebook page and/or re-tweet the announcement from our Twitter! Deadline for entries is Tuesday, August 7th at 11:59pm.
Good luck, y’all, and as always stay tuned to Dork Shelf for the latest news, reviews, and more great contests in the weeks to come.
