Banned across Europe during its initial release due to its intense violence, Austrian filmmaker Gerald Kargl’s brutal and formally transgressive Angst remains one of horror’s most under-appreciated works of sick genius. Ostensibly a look at a homicide-filled day in the life of an unnamed serial killer fresh out of prison, it’s a chilling exercise in intimate, documentary-like sadism in the hands of an overlooked director whose biggest fan is none other than Gaspar Noé. See why for yourself as Brooklyn Horror presents a special 40th anniversary screening. —Matt Barone
