Creepy, atmospheric and surprisingly nasty horror
7 May 2011 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

Laywer David Bottcher, (Christian Berkel) after a year long absence has been hired by a new firm, to act as its liquidator, as the company is deemed unprofitable. After being out of work a year himself, this is not something he takes lightly, and doesn't particularly relish it.

After giving the staff their marching orders, one of them, Frau Blochs (Bibiana Beglau) is reluctant to leave, and seems really depressed and upset. David offers her coffee, comfort and a lift home. Frau Blochs pleads to be kept on, while David politely explains that it's not his decision.

Frau Blochs is not amused and proceeds to semi stalk him, via phone calls, and turning up at his son's afternoon care centre.

David is not happy with this, and goes to Bloch's flat to confront her. However, when he gets there, he finds she's committed suicide. David is stressed with guilt over this. He was out due to mental stress and this is the last thing he needed while just getting back on track.

Then things start to happen. His radio won't play at work. The lights act funny. He keeps thinking he's seeing Frau Bloch, but she's dead, so this can't be. His suspicious, interfering Mother-in-law seems to think that David is simply cracking up again, and his wife is worried.

David himself isn't sure if it's hallucinations or... something else. Especially when events then seem to touch on others around him...

Is it all in his head, an unwelcome return to the previous year? Or is something more sinister at play here?

The Last Employee is a really good and rather unpredictable horror from Germany. Although mainly a psychological horror, it's also punctuated with some dead straight nasty ultra violence, courtesy of German splattermeister Olaf Ittenbach, who did the FX.

My previous experience of Ittenbach's FX have found him reminiscent of early Peter Jackson. But Fox studios are behind this, so when given a half way decent budget, Ittenbach's work is much more impressive, with some scenes sure to have you wincing.

As for the film itself, it's dark, original and with some left field touches, not to mention being quite vicious in parts, which makes this one worth checking out by any horror fan.

8/10, recommended film and a shame the Germans aren't more prolific, as their horror output has been rather impressive, or at least quite solid, over the years.
