pay attention, this is who you alienate the masses (by hilaryglazer)
i think i can account for the discrepancy between my vote and the average vote posted on IMDb. see, this movie was directed by cindy sherman, and therefore is to be viewed as much as a work of art as just another film. this is the same woman who began the whole movement to undermine the historical accuracy with which he accepted photographic works. she showed thru her art not only that there is a shared collective consciousness that is highly malleable and that the photographer can make the viewer a part of the art. i realize that by casting molly ringwald a lot of people may have thought <more>
they were getting another, something bad, i don't know.
I can't believe I JUST now found and watched this movie as well. It played tonite on Showtime Beyond! I was searching for a good movie to watch tonite and I got nothing, until i came upon the title "Office Killer" HA! anything with the word Killer in the title automatically grabs my attention.Thank GOD I stayed on the channel and waited for it to begin - it was FREAKIN AMAZING! Histaricaly amazing! Kane does a wonderful job and I think I literally was smiling the WHOLE time. I felt like a crazy like Dorine! And Molly Ringwald, i will always love her.Everything about this film <more>
I thought this movie was fairly good considering it was a direct to video and b had an unknown supporting cast. The performances were good, the effects were good and it was odd to see Carole Kane doing what she did in this movie... killing! The whole premise is kind of creepy but there's some comedy in there, so I gave it a nine out of ten.
woman dispatches fellow office workers,than just about everyone else in sight in black comedy,horror/suspense hybrid that is very effective (by disdressed12)
this movie is obviously about someone who kills people in the office.and we learn very quickly who the killer is,so i don't think it's possible to give too much away.Said killer is knebbish office worker Dorine Douglas Carol Kane .Douglas is a very lonely,insecure waif who lives with her overbearing mother.Douglas decides to begin killing people in her office,after witnessing one of her co-workers accidentally get killed.Douglas realizing she feels something akin to joy at his death.and she covers his death up.i should mention that most of her fellow workers treat her with disdain,or <more>
worse,even to the point of cruelty and hurtful remarks.so she feel justification for her feelings.soon,she dispatches another co-worker and then another.thing is,once she starts,she just keeps going and going and going. like the Energizer Bunny as the bodies mount up,Douglas also starts killing co-workers who are actually not that mean to her.and then,just about anyone she comes in contact with,she kills i mean anyone .I have to say that Cane does a very good job in the role.her character becomes quite gleeful of her work,treating it something akin to getting an A plus on a report card. you can tell Cane had a lot of fun with this role .she is a true sociopath,to be sure.and she engages in some very amusing rituals which i won't go into here.let's just say,you have to see it to believe it.so,what genre does this movie fall into?well,horror,to be sure and suspense, and most prevalent,black comedy,very black.there are also a lot of intentional campy moments.some of the situations are so absurd and over the top,you have to laugh.this movie works on all levels and it proves you don't need a gi-normous gigantic/enormous budget to make a very effective movie.truly a unique piece of art.
I guess people did not get it... (by scheller_2003)
I was impressed to see this film had so many bad reviews, both from critics and viewers. I saw it and I actually think it is a very good inside joke, it is only necessary to get the "spirit" of it. Director Cindy Sherman uses gore and some very curious camera positions to make you a little bit scary and also laugh once or twice not out-loud, though . The performances from Carol Kane totally crazy and Molly Ringwald in a very against-the-type turn are very good. The supporting cast German actress Barbara Sukowa and The Soprano's Michael Imperioli is also interesting. I <more>
think this film makes a perfect midnight video snack with some friends.
The opening credits are awesome!! I just love the way they bring the names out while that great music is playing. I really want to get my hands on the soundtrack. Short, sweet, and amazing actress Carol Kane plays Dorine Douglas, a lonely middle aged woman who is buried under big sweaters, clunky shoes and over sized glasses. She keeps to herself, barely talking to anyone and cringes at the slightest touch. Dorine lives alone with her elderly mother who is basically handicapped. Dorine works at Constant Consumer magazine which she has been working for the past 16 years. Dorine, along with <more>
many if not all employees, have been down sized to part timers due to a lack in funds. Dorine now has to work at home from her laptop. The last night at the office, Dorine runs into computer trouble and seeks help from one of her co-workers. A jerk who hates everything about her, Gary tries his best to make her feel uncomfortable and succeeds. After she returns from the bathroom, Dorine notices that Gary has been accidentally electrocuted. Here is where it all begins!! Instead of telling the police, Dorine takes his corpse to her house and sets him on a sofa in her basement. Now of course it's normal for one to think that this lady has got serious issues right from the get go but as the movie progresses you should tell yourself that words like 'crazy' and 'psycho' are total understatements. Dorine begins to feel a form of comfort for her loneliness after killing her boss and another co-worker along with a pair of 7 year old girl scout cookie sellers Which I think was very screwed up . She sets each body in the basement and begins to talk to them and giggle to herself as if the dead people are talking back. Issues people....ISSUES!! We soon learn that Dorine's strangeness and discomfort comes from being sexually abused by her father when she was young. In one of the flashback scenes, we see that Dorine as a child has killed her father. Anyway, Doreen comes home one day and finds her elderly mother has died No, she didn't do it! but the way Doreen screams to her mom after her mom dies, is priceless. I love the way she goes from "Mommy don't go away...!!" to "I don't care...you and Daddy can dance in hell alright...hahahahaha!!" in a split second. Man, does this woman have major issues or what?! Molly Ringwald plays Kim, a co-worker who despises Dorine and is friends with co-worker, Norah Tripplehorn . Is it very obvious that Kim doesn't like Dorine and it turns to a brutal fight in the stairwell once Kim has been fired from her job. Kim manges to escape Dorine's attempt to strangle her. Mean while Norah begins to befriend Dorine and on their way to have lunch, Dorine knocks Norah out and drags her home to the basement. Norah's boyfriend comes looking for her and heads to Dorine's house. He hears a noise in the basement. Dorine runs down there before he can and locks the door behind her. Norah runs to Dorine and freaks out when Dorine realizes Norah's secret: Norah is the reason why work is going bad. Norah has been secretly stealing money from the company thus causing the job cuts. Norah tries to escape and her boyfriend manages to break in the basement. Dorine kills him and after a long struggle, ends up killing Norah as well. The ending was a bit weak and could've been better but that's just my opinion. Carol Kane delivers one of the best performances I've ever seen!! I don't think an actor can portray a crazy/psychotic person as convincing as Kane did. You can't help but feel sorry for Dorine even after she goes on her killing spree. This movie was well acted and the plot, although silly at times, was good over all. After watching this movie I can only say that I hope no one tries to ever mess with quiet, mousy people. You just never know.
