Eureka Entertainment have announced that they will be releasing SIMON KILLER as part of their Masters of Cinema Series. The acclaimed second feature by Antonio Campos, starring rising indie-star and director Brady Corbet, of Lars von Trier’s Melancholia and Olivier Assayas’s upcoming Sils Maria, and Mati Diop of Claire Denis’s 35 Shots of Rum, will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on 26th August 2013.

A deeply disturbing character study of a handsome and sociopathic American in Paris, writer-director Antonio Campos’s Simon Killer hones further the psychological perceptiveness and keen filmmaking craft exhibited in Campos’s acclaimed feature debut Afterschool.

Brady Corbet (Melancholia, Thirteen, Martha Marcy May Marlene) plays Simon, a recent college graduate full of promise and potential, who goes to Paris to begin a trip around Europe following a break-up with a long-time girlfriend. An outsider adrift upon a profound sense of loss, Simon takes solace in the company of Victoria (Mati Diop of 35 Shots of Rum), a beautiful, young, and mysterious prostitute — and their fateful journey begins…

Emotionally compelling and visually stunning, Simon Killer is an examination of casual brutality, profane sexuality, alienation, and desperation, all cut to a killer soundtrack that underscores the borderline psychotic fervour of Simon’s descent. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present the UK debut of Antonio Campos’s powerful, hypnotic, and remarkably assured Simon Killer on Blu-ray and DVD.

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Yakuza Zero and Mafia III.
