Angst

, just in time for Halloween.
Quote:

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) 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, with painstaking bonus features; including a new Interview with Erwin Leder, and Audio Commentary and an Interview with director Gerald Kargl conducted by Jorg Buttgereit ( Nekromantik), and an 2015 Introduction by Gasper Noe (director of Irreversible), who cited

Angst

as an influence, one that I have watched more than 40 times.
