Critic Reviews for Office Killer

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (5)

Some of this is insulting, all of it is tedious.

L.A. Weekly
Top Critic

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

January 1, 2000
New York Times
Top Critic

It can't decide what it wants to be -- slasher fest, social satire or revenge comedy -- and ends up being an awkward goulash.

Top Critic

Trashy, stupid, schlock-y, and completely dull.

February 21, 2004
eFilmCritic.com

The film opens with some intriguing and old-fashioned credits set to an ominous score. That's the high point.

No terror or suspense occupies this tired, gloomy vacuum, not to mention wit or humor.

Audience Reviews for Office Killer

Kind of weird, a bit good yet not really smart. The characters are kind of silly for the most part, and the movie drags on for a while, but there is some interest. It doesn't quite hit any marks though, or maintain to any sort of memorability.

Insane! Everything is so wrong in this movie that it becomes enjoyable. The image part is very appealing (how Dorine looks and how the scenes are shot). And anyway I love Cindy Sherman so whatever she touches becomes intriguing.

One of those comedies so black that it tips over into disturbing horror with a few humorous bits that just add to the unease. It also looks fantastic. Thanks, Cindy Sherman!
