Cult Epic’s Angst – Blu-ray is Back by Popular Demand!
Cult Epic’s Angst �” Blu-ray is Back by Popular Demand!
1 Blu-ray disc
Label: Cult Epics
Catalog #: CE-141
Color, 87 minutes in English
All regions. Widescreen 1.85:1

Director: Gerald Kargl
Cast: Erwin Leder, Silvia Rabenreither
ANGST, photographed by legendary Oscar-winning Polish animator/experimentalist Zbig Rybczynski and scored by Krautrock synth god Klaus Schulze (Tangerine Dream), is one hell of a gorgeously stylized and shockingly visceral experience: a forgotten classic on the fringes of the slasher cycle. Erwin Leder (Das Boot, Schindler’s List) plays a maniacal killer based on the real-life serial murderer Werner Kniesek. As he stalks through the bland Viennese countryside, Schulze’s music pulses darkly, and Zbig’s innovative first-person camerawork grabs you by the throat, never letting go. Angst is one film that, without any empty hyperbole, we can guarantee you’ll never, ever forget.
Cult Epics presents for the first time since its original release, the Uncut, Uncensored (optically restored tunnel murder-scene) version in HD, with painstaking bonus features; including a new Interview with Erwin Leder, and Audio Commentary and an Interview with director Gerald Kargl conducted by Jorg Buttgereit (Nekromantik) and an Introduction by Gasper Noe (director of Irreversible, Enter The Void, Love), who cited Angst as an influence, ‘one that I have watched more than 40 times’.

SUPER TROOPERS 2 LANDS A NSFW TRAILER!
TV One’s ‘Two Sides’ Premieres Monday, Jan. 22 at 10 p.m. ET
During the summer of 2014, Eric Garner was choked and killed by NYPD officers while being arrested. On January 22 at 10 p.m. ET, the premiere episode of TV One’s new docu-series ‘Two Sides’ will evaluate and present multiple points of view of the highly-charged case that ignited the “I Can’t Breathe” movement.
The 43-year-old was standing outside of a beauty supply store in Staten Island, New York when police tried to arrest him for allegedly illegally selling loose cigarettes. The video of Officer Daniel Pantaleo putting Garner in a chokehold went viral. Although the medical examiner ruled his death a homicide, a grand jury has thus far declined to indict Pantaleo.
Executive produced by Academy Award® winner Viola Davis, Julius Tennon (JuVee Productions), and Lemuel Plummer (L. Plummer Media) with narration by Davis, Two Sides explores watershed moments for law enforcement and the Black community at the crossroads between life and death. The series focuses on four headline-grabbing fatal police encounters during 2014 – 2015, including Ezell Ford, John Crawford, and Sandra Bland.
