Carol Kane and Molly Ringwald shine in this office horror-comedy. Doreen (Carol Kane) is the office mouse. She is bright, efficient, and a social recluse. Kim (Molly) is outgoing and the polar opposite of Carol.

When a downsizing is announced, Doreen loses her sanity and becomes the most unlikely serial killer. This is a quirky film that doesn't require much thinking.

Parental Guide: F-bombs. No sex or nudity.

Part of a "Midnight Horror" DVD 8-pack.

Carol kane plays Dorine a mousy oddball office worker who when not in the office spends her days looking after her disabled mother.Dorine is picked on by her fellow workers & when one is accidently killed,Dorine decieds to go on a killing spree,killing the workers one by one & storing the bodies at her house & treating them as friends!
I loved the cast,Carol kane is as excellent as always & i was impressed with Molly ringwald as the bitchy Kim.Its a dark comedy horror but i feel that whilst its enjoyable it just somehow doesnt work & falls flat a little towards the end.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars How to build your OWN home office for pennies a day! 28 Mar. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com

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. But if taken in the context of Doreen's warped mind and Kane's sharp characterization, the result is Pathos mixed with nausea.
"Office Killer" may not be a movie you would even want to see, but it isn't half as bad as you've read. The problem most people have with it I think----is that it hits them where they live and makes them uncomfortable. But, then again, independant cinema needs more films like that.

3.0 out of 5 stars A truly odd, BUT EFFECTIVE piece of work 12 Aug. 2000
By Video_Connoisseur - Published on Amazon.com
Dorine is a lonely old woman who works for a modern-age magazine company that's just brushing up with the changing times in cutting edge technology. She lives in her childhood home caring for her cripple mother and leads a pretty unsatisfying life. She gets a shock when company down-sizing forces her to spend less time in the office and more time at home.
Then one night, a superior accidently dies fixing electrical wiring. She gets spooked and instead of calling someone, she decides to: lug his body to her home, plant him in front of her basement television, and go on a homicial massacre.
Morbidly sick, dismal, and grotesque slasher has admirable direction, style and charisma. Kane turns in an EXCELLENT performance (comparable to Kathleen Turner in SERIAL MOM), the camera angles are astonishingly crafty, the music is haunting, and the ending is quite shocking.
There is however one major flaw: the amateur execution of painfully pitiful dialogue. It's unbearable at times. Also, both Ringwald and Tripplehorn are completely wasted.

4.0 out of 5 stars "The Basement of Death!"........................HAHA! 7 Dec. 1999
By thomas angelo zunich - Published on Amazon.com
I will start out by saying, what a strange ensemble this is! Carol Kane, Molly Ringwald and Jean Tripplehorn all in the SAME movie? How utterly random! Not knowing anything about Cindy Sherwood, who is she? I rented this by recommendation from a friend. Did not expect much, judging by the title and the stars. I was in for a pleasant surprise. I was captivated by the sheer grittiness and style of this film alone to make it enjoyable. It uses original angles and lighting in the production aspect of the film, which is refreshing.
The thing I most enjoyed about this film was Carol Kane's performance. She makes Kathy Bates in Misery look like the lady in Romper Room. She played the part with such minimalistic ferver it became frightening to watch. Ultimately disturbing to see her go completely wacko as well. This movie absolutely shocked me, I couldn't believe what I was seeing at times. I just didn't expect Doreen to become so evil. It's like, why the girl scouts, WHY?
As disturbing as this movie gets, it still manages to remain comedic, so over the top at times, you chuckle. But then you ask yourself, why the heck am I chuckling? (Am I that sick?).
My hat goes off to Carol Kane in this performance of a lifetime for her. If your a fan of hers, you gotta see her in Office Killer, "the feel good movie of the year!" (yeah right!).
