Very Effective

So, apparently this movie is super rare and eventually I got my hands on a bootlegged copy (don't judge me, I'm not proud of it!) The DVD I now own is the short version (at 75 minutes) and has somewhat grainy picture quality. The plot follows the homicidal maniac credited simply as 'the psychopath' (eerily played by Erwin Leder,) who is released from prison where he served time for the murder of a... read more

quite a good flick - although the way the director did the murders really come across as so clumbsy - it was almost comical - shame as if these most important scences were polished then this could have been a real gem. camera work is fantastic and surely later films must have taken some of this onboard.

A man is released from prison after serving ten years for murdering an elderly woman. He quickly begins to feel the compulsion to kill again. After failing to murder a cab driver, he flees and discovers a secluded rural home, where a young woman lives with her sick mother and retarded brother. He then begins to take out his sadistic pleasures on them, attempting to hold them hostage, while thinking of his troubled childhood with his abusive mother and grandmother...

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"Gerald Kargl’s Angst is a 75-minute cinematic panic attack. Body-mounted cameras, high-angle tracking shots, amplified sound design, and a bone-chilling krautrock score swirl together to create a manic, propulsive energy that’s as disorienting to the viewer as the implacable urge to kill is for Erwin Leder’s unnamed psychopath. Angst elides all psychological trappings, instead tapping directly into this all-consuming desire for destruction on a purely physiological and experiential level. "

"4.8, PC Tuo vahvasti mieleen Funny Gamesin, joskin Angstin psykopaatti on aivan omaa luokkaansa. Erwin Lederin esittämä tappaja kulkee ympäriinsä kuin eläin kiimassa etsien seuraavaa uhria, ja hahmon mielihalut ovat kovin häiriintyneitä, mutta toisaalta kaveri on niin riutuneen ja heikon näköinen että vähän käy sääliksi. Lisäksi kameratyöskentely on erittäin nättiä katseltavaa."

"6.2. Angst on ilmeisesti vaikuttanut erityisesti Gaspar Noén elokuviin, mutta sen lisäksi tuli mieleen myös Haneke ja Funny Games, jonka kotiintunkeutumiskauhussa on vastaavanlaista naturalistista, viihde-elementeistä riisuttua psykologista jännitettä. Pienestä budjetista huolimatta Angst on elokuvallisesti hyvin pätevä - erityisesti omintakeisen kameratyöskentelyn osalta. Erwin Lederin mielenvikainen murhamies ei ole överiksi vedetty karikatyyri vaan realistisen oloinen luhistunut i"
