Back in November we shared the very cool 70's styled retro poster for Antonio Campos upcoming SIMON KILLER, an uncompromising character study of a young man's maddening descent into sociopathic behavior. Today we have a look at the UK quad poster for you below. It's been said in the past that "The eyes have it", and in the case of the marketing for this film, that certainly seems to be the case.
Brady Corbet plays Simon, a recent college graduate full of promise and potential, who goes to Paris to begin a trip around Europe after a bad break-up with his long-time girlfriend. Although he’s leaving behind a bad memory, he can’t manage to shake off his feelings of loss. Like many young people living overseas and away from home for the first time, he’s both an adventurer and an outsider in a very strange land. When Simon falls in love with a young, mysterious prostitute (Mati Diop), their fateful journey begins.
Ok, so it doesn't sound like the genre fare we usually follow here on AITH, but remember that this film is coming from the gang behind MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE, so there is some hope that it will deliver something unsettling and unexpected. Check out the trailer below and sound back with your thoughts on your expectations from SIMON KILLER.
