Cult Epics will present director Gerald Kargl’s ANGST (1983) uncut and uncensored for the first time in U.S. theaters.
Angst is one hell of a gorgeously stylized and shockingly visceral experience: a forgotten classic on the fringes of the slasher cycle. Zbig’s innovative “first person” camerawork grabs you by the throat, never letting go.
Scored by Krautrock synth god Klaus Schulze (Tangerine Dream), Angst stars Erwin Leder (Das Boot, Schindler’s List) as a maniacal killer based on the real-life serial murderer Werner Kniesek. Director Gaspar Noé (Irreversible, Enter the Void, Love) calls Angst “the rarest unknown masterpiece of cinema” and cites the film as a major influence, “one that I have watched more than 40 times.”
