Editorial Reviews

Favorite screen stars Jeanne Tripplehorn (MICKEY BLUE EYES, SLIDING DOORS), Carol Kane (THE PALLBEARER, ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES), and Molly Ringwald (TEACHING MRS. TINGLE, BETSY'S WEDDING) head a great cast in this campy and darkly hilarious thriller! Dorine (Kane) is a quiet and hardworking social outcast who has endured years of abuse as the office doormat. Then one day, this mild-mannered paper pusher accidentally electrocutes one particularly obnoxious coworker ... and in the process, completely short-circuits her already unstable sanity! From that moment on, Dorine comes to believe that any office mate can be her best friend -- once they're dead! An outrageous display of the creepier side of office politics -- Dimension Home Video is pleased to bring you an unusually entertaining motion picture that's destined to kill you with comedy!

When still photographer Cindy Sherman announced she was making a feature film, the buzz was high in the indie community---high enough to warrent interest from Carol Kane, Jeanne Tripplehorn and Molly (yes) Ringwald. The film was released in late '97 to scalding reviews, denouncing it as sick, perverted, unfunny and simply pointless.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
This is the role Carol Kane has been waiting for all her life, after getting relegated to B and C roles in everything from the "Stranger Calls" series to the newly released "Jawbreaker". She gleams with an eerie intensity as seemingly mousy copywriter Doreen Douglas, whose downsizing to a part-time, work at home position, is just the catalyst she needs to plunge into the abyss of madness. For Doreen, her job IS her life, and when it's taken away, she takes steps to ensure her life doesn't leave quietly. "Office Killer" comes at a time when working at home is becoming more and more common place, and with it, the detachment inherent is bound to affect those who have little else going on in their lives. Kane's Doreen makes sure that if she can't be with her co-workers, they can sure be with her, under any circumstances.
Tripplehorn turns in an appropriately plastic performance as the nice-girl-turned-climber and Ringwald chews the scenery as a bitchy writer who seems to be the only one to recognize Kane's increasingly bizarre behavior. Only Barbara Sukowa, as the managing editor, turns in a way way over the top turn, that is grating in it's staginess.
The most gruesome scenes here are almost borderline funny, which sounds sick, I know.

I think this is a fabulous independent film. People are acting shocked and disgusted by this movie, but what did they expect?The movie, after all, is called office killer!! It's campy and over the top, like most great horror films. Watch this movie with an open mind and enjoy!!

As a die hard fan of cindy sherman...I have to say that I was dying just to get ahold of this movie and when I finally did.....gee....I nearly had an orgasm while watching it. this is definetely a piece of sherman's work...you can see it all through out the movie, although this movie is not for everyone.....I think it was delicious I adore her work and nearly passed out when I held the cover to the movie...isn't that great? well I think that everyone has their own opinion and that is fair...I don't think that she was looking to please everyone and that's what makes good films...to me at least. If you enjoyed this movie or are a fan of her work I would be delighted to talk with you! email me at: jesus_kriste@yahoo.com

Whew, this one got trashed here, didn't it? Well, I enjoyed it, actually. It's an arty little B-movie... A curiosity which is shaken to life by Carol Kane's near-flawless performance. Wow! A role she sinks her teeth (and knives) into. I'd love to give specific examples but they're so well-timed I'd be spoiling it. The viewer is led to be sympathetic, then not, then sympathetic again in a very refreshing way. My personal quibbles are a few character inconsistencies, some arty shots that, while beautiful, are distracting, and the disappointingly Hollywood ending... Otherwise, this gruesome, bleak little exercise is fun, sick fun, but FUN... Hey, Cindy Sherman loves THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, and this is in a similar vein... When other arty directors are bludgeoning the viewer with self-indulgence and lame messages, this film provides a welcome alternative.

cindy sherman, one of the greatest contemporary photographers, made her directoral debute with this soon-to-be cult classic thriller. "office killer" captures the essence of a lonely office worker (carol kane) gone mad. it is a true thriller that will make twisted minds laugh. the creative cinematography only contributes to the seductive quality of this film. great for movie lovers, film study, and photography classes.

Photographer and director Cindy Sherman has been watching too many horror movies. This one is definitely the classic formula First an accident, then maybe another, then the trigger. Freud would be proud of this one.

No matter how fun this movie looks do not try this at home. And no, this is not what is meant by downsizing.

Dorine (Carol Kane) is working for a publisher that is about to downsize the office. The office is sort of dysfunctional anyway. Her character is more in line with Milton Waddams `Office Space' (1999). There may be a sub plot to this. Mean while it seems that everyone involved with making Dorine uncomfortable is invited to stay at her place. FOREVER.

So get out the sticky tape and popcorn to watch this one.

THE MAIN REASON to see this off-kilter black comedy is Carol Kane. Kane, once nominated for an Oscar for her role in HESTER STREET, went on to play the dispatcher on TAXI, but we've never really seen that much of her. In her role as Dorine Douglas, the titled murderer, she gives a performance that is totally awesome. Kane uses her put upon persona, her deeply infested hate and hurt to bring Dorine to vicious life. Her scene when she finds her mother dead is brilliant in its intensity and the way Kane is able to jump back and forth. It's not easy playing a wacko and getting away with it. Here, Kane shines in a performance that should not have been overlooked at Oscar time.
Only Molly Ringwald as the bitchy coworker gives more than a passing performance; Jeanne Tripplehorn almost makes it, but the rest of the cast, well...
Anyway, this is NOT a pleasant movie, and along with CHRISTINA'S HOUSE gives further credence to the ban on door to door selling.
Worth a rent just to see Kane's killer performance!
