Jeanne Tripplehorn was uncomfortable filming a scene in which her character literally stumbles onto a dead body. Initially the scene was planned to be much gorier than the finished product. See more »

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.

Office Killer, written by Elise MacAdam, is the first feature film directed by Cindy Sherman, best known for clever references to classic films in her still photography and utilizes some excellently placed commercial visuals to joke on the slasher film in a very low-key fashion.
Sherman always frames for types over specifics of character - this avoidance of in-depth characterization leaves the viewer distanced and uninvolved, and ultimately is what converts the horror-based tale into a comedy. Because we are shown the gloss of the narrative rather than the motivations of the lead character Dorine and her needs, we remain uninvolved except for some tasty flash backs from Dorine that fill in some gaps, the story still remains outside of the character's head.
