Storyline

Johann Christoph Haizmann, who lived in the 1650s, was a painter and a deeply disturbed individual. His intricate paintings of the devil and his elaborate journal entries depicting encounters with him led Sigmund Freud to diagnose him as one of the first known schizophrenics. Legend has it that Haizmann made a pact with the devil in 1650 to be his son here on earth, and therefore gained immortality. Now, in present day, washed-up child actor Julian, the free-spirited Hannah, and former teacher Grace, along with a documentary film crew, go on a search for this man, who may be the embodiment of all evil. Along the way, they get tips from various experts, which include performances from George Kennedy, Tippi Hedren, Erick Avari, and Stephen Furst. The journey takes them from the inner city to a satanic black mass ceremony, and into the depths of their own souls, as they search for Johann Christoph Haizmann, the Antichrist.

Well Crafted Mystery
23 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Searching for Haizmann is a well executed, well crafted horror film that utilizes one of the best means of conveying a story-the mystery. Events and characters unfold as our protagonists search for the truth, and ultimately before the truth finds them. The director takes this convention a step further, allowing his narrative to unspool thru interviews and pre-recorded segments. While this may seem like a gimmick similar to the Blair Witch Project and Cannibal Holocaust, the cinema vertie style lends itself nicely to the overall style and adds to enhance the atmosphere of dread. A nicely ambiguous ending further adds to the surrealistic environment and proves to be an interesting twist.
