Trailer for SIMON KILLER: A Prostitute And a Sociopath Do Bad Things In Paris

Brian Clark, European Editor
Looks like the city of light just got a little darker. The trailer for Antonio Campos' follow-up to Afterschool, Simon Killer, has arrived, and while it literally pulses with energy, it's not the happy kind. The story goes like this: The titular character (Brady Corbet) journeys in Paris in order to get over a break up, hooks up with a beautiful young prostitute and proceeds to ruin a number of lives. According to our own Joshua Chaplinsky, "It takes the tired "white kid goes to Europe, finds love and/or cultural enlightenment" premise and turns it on its head. It then stomps that head into the pavement."

    Very nice stylish trailer, but seems the editor have seen The Rules of Attraction (2002) one too many times, Mr Clark......looks like Victor´s trip to Europe....still, it looks entertaining, thanks for the trailer Mr Clark.
