Office Killer | 1997 | R | - 1.10.6

Devoted but mentally-unstable copy editor Carol Kane seeks revenge on co-workers who've wronged her. Molly Ringwald, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Barbara Sukowa, Michael Imperioli, Eddie Malavarca, David Thornton, Mike Hodge, Alice Drummond and Doug Barron co-star.

SEX/NUDITY 1 - Some sexual innuendo. One passionate kiss. One cleavage shot. A man briefly looks at a centerfold magazine.

VIOLENCE/GORE 10 - We see several scenes in which several corpses are on couches and on the floor of a room; in each subsequent scene, the corpses become more and more bloody and decomposed. A pool of blood surrounds a corpse, and we see a woman pulling something bloody from its slit throat. A woman slices a man's stomach open; as he's lying on the floor, we see blood and perhaps a piece of intestine seep from the wound. One lingering shot of a woman taping pieces of a corpse's bloody, decomposed chest together, then cleaning the chest with a household cleaner (later, a woman falls on the corpse and her hand goes into its bloody torso). A woman uses an inhaler that has apparently been filled with poison; she falls to the ground and we see foam dripping from her mouth. A man is electrocuted, and we see his bloody, charred hand. A woman is threatened with a knife; we hear but don't see her being killed. A woman finds a dead person who apparently died from natural causes; there's no blood. We see a corpse covered with a bloody sheet and another covered corpse being carried to an ambulance. A woman tries to strangle a woman with a scarf, and a woman hits another in the head with a tire iron. We see what looks like a small, bloody body part stuck on a clock, and in a few scenes we see a pair of bloody, blackened hands on sticks (a cat licks them in one scene). A woman slides in a pool of blood. We see a bloody hand and what could be a severed head in a duffel bag. A woman puts a dead, stiff mouse into a garbage disposal (we hear it being ground up). A man who's driving a car gropes a girl's knee; she grabs his hand and causes him to run into a telephone pole. A woman sets fire to a house.

LANGUAGE 6 - About 10 F-words, a few anatomical references, many scatological references, many mild obscenities and many insults.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
