Angst (1983)

Horror, Cult 1h 27m 1983

“The rarest masterpiece of cinema.” – Gaspar Noé, director of ENTER THE VOID and IRREVERSIBLE

“Kargl’s unsung masterpiece of distress usurps the discomfort engendered… thanks to ambient score and spectacular camerawork.” – Ion Cinema

“Roger Ebert famously observed that ‘Art is the closest we can come to understanding how a stranger really feels.’ If that’s the case, ANGST might be the deepest that cinema has ever plunged into the mind of a psychopath. It is a testament to the visceral power of cinema, with all the dangers and beauty that entails.” – Sound On Sight

ANGST, photographed by legendary Oscar-winning Polish animator/experimentalist Zbig Rybczynski and scored by Krautrock synth god Klaus Schulze (Tangerine Dream), is one hell of a gorgeously stylized and shockingly visceral experience: a forgotten classic on the fringes of the slasher cycle. Erwin Leder (DAS BOOT; SCHINDLER’S LIST) plays a maniacal killer based on the real-life serial murderer Werner Kniesek. As he stalks through the bland Viennese countryside, Schulze’s music pulses darkly, and Zbig’s innovative “first-person” camerawork grabs you by the throat, never letting go. ANGST is one film that, without any empty hyperbole, we can guarantee you’ll never, ever forget.
