31 Days of Horror – Day 6 – “Office Killer” (1997)

A wonderfully over-the-top performance by the one and only Carol Kane can’t save a movie that doesn’t know whether it wants to be a horror movie or a satire on the interworkings of office behavior. It is badly paced but well shot (it was directed by famous photographer Cindy Sherman) with some nice bits of black humor that feels at odds with the material. You have Carol Kane as a batty office lady who loses it and kills her coworkers and you can’t find a way to make the material work? A missed opportunity.
