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.

Cast: Erwin Leder, Robert Hunger-Buhler, Silvia Rabenreither

Not a terrible movie it had a very atmospheric feel and a dark and intimate insight of a deranged serial killer and what it is like living inside his head

It's definitely not the worst serial killer movie out there... but I'm a little confused as to what all the fuss was about. The narration was fine but not much really happened and not much was shown. Feels a bit empty?
