Antonio Campos’ chronicle of an American student in Paris is out in the French city’s best season.

Apparently something to behold visually (with a poster to match), SIMON KILLER finds FUNNY GAMES and MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE star Brady Corbet playing 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.

The film is Campos’ much anticipated follow-up to his unnerving, deliberate AFTERSCHOOL. In the meantime, he’s served as a producer on Sean Durkin’s aforementioned, and fantastic, MARTHA MARCY.  SIMON KILLER is out in NYC on April 5, and hits VOD and other select cities April 12.
