Matthew McCounaughey and Emile Hirsch are too extreme for kids!
Killer Joe has received a NC-17 rating for "graphic aberrant content involving violence and sexuality, and a scene of brutality," meaning absolutely no youngsters allowed.
Matthew stars as a police officer by day, hitman by night and his ass-kicking, name taking ways were deemed too harsh for an R rating.
The movie tried to appeal the film but the rating was upheld by the Classification and Ratings Appeal Board.
The NC-17 rating significantly hurts Killer Joe's money-making potential.
Hopefully, the film can build a cult following through DVD sales!
