Awkward, frumpy Dorine Douglas is a copyeditor for Constant Consumer magazine, managing her colleague’s contempt and caring for her awful mother. Constant Consumer is downsizing, and Dorine realises that she can circumvent the isolation of homeworking if she brings her colleagues home with her. But she’ll have to kill them…
The only film directed by fine artist Cindy Sherman, Office Killer is a Final Girl / Monster narrative that also knowingly parodies slasher film tropes. Led by Carol Kane (The Mafu Cage), Molly Ringwald (The Breakfast Club) and Jeanne Tripplehorn (Basic Instinct), who are clearly having a blast, watch Office Killer to see why critic Dahlia Schweitzer describes it as “the most unusual coming-of-age movie you have ever seen”.

Cindy Sherman
(*1954) is an American photographer and one of the most important and influential artists in contemporary art. Her work has focused mainly on self-portraits depicting imagined characters. Her breakthrough work is often considered to be Complete Untitled Film Stills, a series of 70 black-and-white photographs of herself in many of the performative roles of women in media (especially arthouse films and popular b-movies). Office Killer is her only feature film as a director.
