This German horror movie called ANGST (1983), which was supremely perverse and upsetting, but also featured some absolutely insane cinematography/camerawork for its time. The actor who plays the killer is excellent and scary, but the other actors are not convincing .. the characters' reactions are stupid. And the whole thing has aged badly. This film deserves to be watched for its realization especially. Dark, unsettling, brutal.. but with too idiot characters.
