THE EMPLOYER is a psychological thriller about a contest for a job that becomes a competition for survival. Written and directed by Frank Merle.
Five qualified candidates have been interviewing for a job with the Carcharias Corporation, a large, successful 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 with no hope of escape. Soon, they receive a phone call from the man who interviewed them, the CEO of Carcharias, known only as The Employer (Malcolm McDowell). He informs them that they are about to experience the final interview, and it's not at all what they were expecting.
