Normal people: stay away from this demented movie
25 March 2001 | by (Kista, Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

If you only want a normal suspense movie, stay away. If you only want gore, stay away. But if you have a strong stomach and want to experience a movie like no other, with first class actor Klaus Kinski as a seriously demented, but intelligent, sadistic serial killer, then this movie is for you.

Kinski wants to control his victims so he can enjoy his power over them. He studies them secretly and subjects them to small experiments to study their reactions before he kills them. By killing he can feel that he is alive, because his actions have impact. Kinski watches documentaries of the nazis and they inspire him, but he feels that he is better than the nazis because he lets nobody escape, not even himself. The gore-scenes are only cream on the cake. My rating is 10 out of 10.
