1h 27m Horror, Cult 1983

A troubled man gets released from prison and sadistically attacks a secluded family.

“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.

Cult Epics presents for the first time since its original release, the Uncut, Uncensored (optically restored tunnel murder-scene) in HD.
