    Synopsis and trailer follow...

    A deeply disturbing character study of a handsome and sociopathic American in Paris, writer-director Antonio Campos's film hones further the psychological perceptiveness and keen filmmaking craft exhibited in Campos's acclaimed feature debut Afterschool.

    Simon is a recent college graduate full of promise and potential, who goes to Paris to begin a trip around Europe following a break-up with a long-time girlfriend. An outsider adrift upon a profound sense of loss, Simon takes solace in the company of Victoria, a beautiful, young, and mysterious prostitute, and their fateful journey begins.

    Emotionally compelling and visually stunning, Simon Killer is an examination of casual brutality, profane sexuality, alienation, and desperation, all cut to a killer soundtrack that underscores the borderline psychotic fervour of Simon's descent.
