Office Killer

USA 1997. Dir Cindy Sherman.

In her first feature film direction to date, American artist Cindy Sherman concocts a peculiarly funny caricature of psycho-thriller and horror genres. The film follows the transformation of the “pathetic” office mouse Dorine into an unruly predator, a femme-fatale-gone-wrong. Having stirred up criminal chaos, Dorine finds much pleasure in fashioning a grisly tableau of her bitchy colleagues in a dark basement, upping the stakes in Sherman’s trademark portrayal of perversity.
