[News] Dark Horror-Comedy EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH Premieres VOD & Digital May 12

From Film Movement comes the arrival of the dark horror comedy, EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH this May for your viewing pleasure.

After working for EcoClean — an industrial cleaning supplies company — for nearly 17 years, model-employee Inès believes it’s time for a raise. Despite daily jibes from her incompetent and misogynistic co-workers (including Patrick, EcoClean’s ineffectual owner), she remains professional and dedicated to the company’s brand. When Inès confronts Patrick about her salary, he not only disparages her request but makes a lecherous pass at her.

New intern Mélody witnesses this and jumps in to help, but in the process both women accidentally find themselves with blood on their hands. Spiraling more out of control by the minute, Inès and Mélody must conjure up increasingly maniacal solutions to cover their tracks — and clean up their mess.

EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH stars Jasmina Douieb, Laetitia Mampaka, Pete Van den Begin, Alex Vizorek, and Laurence Bibot.

The film is directed by Véronique Jadin, who co-wrote the screenplay with Nina Vanspranghe. The film was produced by Sebastian Schelenz. The cinematography was done by Nastasja Saerens.

EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH will premiere via Video on Demand and DVD on May 12, 2023. To learn more, check out our review here.
