Simon Killer, the follow-up to writer/director Antonio Campos' critically acclaimed Afterschool, is an erotic 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. Winner of a Special Jury Prize at the 2012 AFI Film Festival. (Partially subtitled) Official Web Site
