About the Movie
Five highly qualified applicants interview for a coveted job with the Carcharias Corporation, a powerful conglomerate whose business practices are shrouded in mystery. On the night before the last round of interviews, they are all kidnapped and drugged. The next day, they wake up trapped together in a locked room without any hope of escape. Soon the true nature of their situation is revealed when they receive a phone call from the mysterious CEO of Carcharias, known only as The Employer. He informs them that they are about to experience the final interview, but it's not at all what they were expecting.
One of the most interesting movies I’ve seen in a very long time.
The Employer is a fascinating story of human psychology, ethics and the latent animalism that lurks within us all. Seemingly ordinary people whose one goal right now is to become millionaires are put side-by-side to uncover one of the most startling revelations–if that were me, I’d have done what they did. We watch as a spectators, but we’re really watching ourselves–this is exactly what we would do if we were forced in these circumstances. What would our answers be if we were asked the questions that the Carcharias corporation did?
Frank Merle combines the thrilling mystery of the unknown, mixed together with a flashback narrative that intertwines each character in a moral struggle of life, death, and purpose. Within each of us lies the flight or fight instinct, for some, it’s the fight instinct that they can only relate to–what happens when those that flee become those that fight? What will be the ramifications of the innocent being forced in a situation of life and death?
The real horror isn’t in the blood, or the suspense, it’s the psychological schism that can occur within us all and for that, we must be wary not to tap into it. Some interviews aren’t worth it, but how do you know? This is literally one of the best independent movies I’ve ever seen and it’s well worth it!
Scary job interview!
It's hard to get jobs out there. After watching this movie, I am absolutely terrified of job interviews now, I guess I'll just stay home. Scary!
Another great one from Malcolm McDowell
I loved it. Malcolm McDowell plays a great creepy employer. Throughout the film I was just glad that I wasn't in their shoes. Too scary.
