When Dorine Douglas' job as proofreader for Constant Consumer magazine is turned into an at-home position during a downsizing, she doesn't know how to cope.

Trivia

An early draft of the script featured more violence and gore. But Sherman felt the focus should be on what Dorine does with the bodies once she has killed them not how. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Dorine Douglas: [reading] At Constant Consumer magazine there is but one constant rule: get the job done. This can be hazardous, however, when the laws of economics effect our workplace, and threaten to downsize us. For those of you who cannot keep pace with such changes, be forewarned, you will be terminated.

I guess people did not get it...
14 February 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I was impressed to see this film had so many bad reviews, both from critics and viewers. I saw it and I actually think it is a very good inside joke, it is only necessary to get the "spirit" of it. Director Cindy Sherman uses gore and some very curious camera positions to make you a little bit scary and also laugh once or twice (not out-loud, though). The performances from Carol Kane (totally crazy) and Molly Ringwald (in a very against-the-type turn) are very good. The supporting cast (German actress Barbara Sukowa and The Soprano's Michael Imperioli) is also interesting. I think this film makes a perfect midnight video snack with some friends.
