SYNOPSIS

This dark comedy stars Carol Kane as Dorine, a social introvert who has suffered years of daily abuse as the office dogsbody. When she accidentally electrocutes a colleague, she loses her already slim grip on reality and comes to the conclusion that she can come out of her shell and become popular with anyone in the office – by simply killing them!

Acclaimed artist Cindy Sherman’s first and only foray into filmmaking, Office Killer references the corporate downsizing of the 1990s in which employee’s hours were reduced to part-time and the home office was introduced as a money-saving measure.
