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.

This film was very Animalistic! The visceral carnage is dashingly dreadful!

love it. Bristling with kinetic energy while also being a brutal realistic depiction of a killer. that score is magical.

Powerful film, it changed me... I recommend this to true horror fans, and people who also want to understand the act of murder-for-kicks in a psychological way. Loved most of the acting and brilliant, tricky camerawork. 10/10.
