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.

Three skulls for the dynamic cinematography (the real star here)

Very good and definitely unsettling. The only reason it’s knocked off a star is because of the constant internal narration that while in parts definitely added to the story, it also at times seemed a little out of place.
