It doesn't offer a single moment of visceral or emotional electricity.

Audience Reviews for Office Killer


Office Killer, Qu'est-ce que c'est? Actually a better question would be why did you have to suck so hard and make me forever regret leaving an Abel Ferarra Q&A to make it on time to see you. Screw you Office Killer!

Super Reviewer


This is a wierd movie with some solid actresses in it. Part comedy part horror it will entertain you some, but aside from that don't expect much.

i'm very biased because i LOVE both cindy sherman and molly ringwald... this one is so bad, it becomes just so GOOD.
