Storyline

The follow-up to Antonio Campos' critically acclaimed "Afterschool," "Simon Killer" is an erotic and and psychological portrait of Simon (Brady Corbet, "Melancholia," "Martha Marcy May Marlene"), a well-educated, handsome and seemingly sympathetic college graduate with just a hint of something off-putting enough to ignite a sense of concern. Recently heartbroken, Simon travels to Paris to clear his head. After several days of wandering aimlessly, Simon finds himself drawn into a sex parlor and has a sexual encounter with an exotic prostitute, Victoria (Mati Diop, "35 Shots of Rum"). The chemistry builds between the two until they find themselves in a serious relationship, one that leads to blackmail, betrayal and the ultimate revelation of Simon's true nature.

Trivia

2013 Guide Analysis: "Competing at last year's Sundance Film Festival, "Afterschool" director Antonio Campos helmed this story of a heartbroken and handsome American student (Brady Corbet) in Paris. His casual fling with an exotic prostitute blossoms into a serious relationship that ultimately leads to blackmail, betrayal and the murder. Shot in long and languid takes, reviews were decidedly mixed at the festival with a few citing that the graphic sexuality, violence, and even the daring ending are done purely for shock value to add interest to an often dull movie. IFC has slated it for a limited theatrical and VOD release in mid-April."
