Angst

Angst

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.

When a psychopath is released from prison, he hunts for fresh victims.

The actors who portrayed the victims did a fabulous job of appearing dead while the psycho dragged each of them thru the house and outside. The dog was funny. The necrophilia not so much.

Extraordinary. I can’t believe I’ve not been hipped to this intelligent, non-sensationalistic (though ultra-violent) well-crafted, and brilliantly shot character study of the criminally insane.
