Product Description

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) version 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 Introduction by Gasper Noé (director of Irreversible, Enter The Void, Love), who cited Angst as an influence, ‘one that I have watched more than 40 times’.


“Masterfully directed and absolutely disturbing piece of horror cinema” -Fangoria

"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.  Angst is a testament to the visceral power of cinema, with all the dangers and beauty that entails.”
-Sound on Sight

"Essential Arthouse horror" -Film Comment
