Directed by Gerald Kargl
When a psychopath is released from prison, he hunts for fresh victims to torture and kill. When he enters a secluded house where an elderly woman lives with her two adult children, his evil work begins. Ahead-of-his-time-director Gerald Kargl’s little-known study of a sadist at work is unrelenting in its depiction of depravity, anticipating HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER, MAN BITES DOG and - thanks to Zbigniew Rybczyński’s disorienting camerawork - Gaspar Noe’s twisted films. Newly restored, this masterpiece of murder and sadism is ripe for rediscovery.

So uncomfortable and disturbing. Way ahead of its time technically and creatively. I truly think that this film hit the bullseye on how some murders think. The sausage eating scene will stay with me forever, could you chew just a bit louder sir LOL
not for me...
Feels dated at this point with all that has came after it, but had brilliant cinematography and unnerving story. Leaves you feeling very uneasy and on edge.
Bangla Bangla donkey
2 thumbs down.
