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.

A little slow, especially toward the end. Not too bad though
I hated it but couldn’t turn it off... I found myself trying to find a rational link in thinking but never do
Many scenes in this film are disturbing. Unknown and unrepentant, the psychopath fumbles from door to door in search of a victim. This is no slasher and it's way ahead of its time. This kind of film is difficult to find. The last half does drag a bit.
This is a pretty darn unpleasant sit. Tremendously bleak, we only really get to know the main character and he's not exactly sympathetic. Maybe this is your thing but I found it pretty far from a good time, it is disturbing so if that's all you want then you got it.
