The film stars Matthew McConaughey (Magic Mike), Emile Hirsch (Speed Racer), Juno Temple (Dirty Girl), Gina Gershon (Showgirls), and Oscar-nominee Thomas Haden Church (Sideways).

The talented actresses talked about the new film, working with legendary filmmaker Billy Friedkin, preparing for the film's ultra violent/sexual scenes, and the smell of fried chicken.
