Plot Summary:

The follow-up to Antonio Campos' critically acclaimed "Afterschool," "Simon Killer" is an erotic and and 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.
