IFC Films has debuted the new trailer for Simon Killer, director Antonio Campos' follow-up to his 2009 feature debut Afterschool. Brady Corbet portrays Simon, who travels to Paris to forget about his recent romantic woes. He sparks up an affair with a French prostitute (Mati Diop), which sets off a dangerous chain of events that reveals who Simon really is. Take a look at the latest footage from this upcoming thriller, arriving in theaters April 5 from IFC Films.
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.
