Storyline

An off-beat dark comedy about Gregg's first day of work at a new office. From the moment he arrives, unusual situations and twisted office humor keep Gregg uncertain of his new employer. After a full day of unsettling rumors and frustration caused by co-workers, Gregg is ready for home... but as fate has it, Gregg is accidentally locked in at work overnight. This is when the really strange events begin.

Great low budget movie. Lots of laughs, great horror.
14 March 2003 | by (Santa Clara, CA) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie at Cinequest in San Jose on its second showing. The film was as funny as Office Space and as it gradually gets scarier, the feeling was awesome. On top of that, Bilge made this movie for about $55,000, which was an amazing achievement. If this movie is showing in your area in a festival or gets picked up in distribution, you should definitely check it out.

New Guy [2003:NR:85; Comedy:Occupational] (Liked) -- On his first day at his new job, Gregg discovers a strange corporate culture that borders on the absurd and finds himself in a downward spiral that end in a nightmarish evening at the office. -- Starting off as a comedy that can only be described by comparing it to `Office Space', `New Guy' brings laughter without trying too hard. The halfway point of the movie is marked by a transition into more and more horrifying situations that do not leave the realm of plausibility. The movie is well paced and invokes laughter and fear simultaneously in the audience mainly because of the excellent acting by newcomer Kelly Miller.

****1/2
