Berlin Horror Story: German Angst

How amazing is the latest season of American Horror Story? God, I love “Hotel” so much and despite all the criticism I think Lady Gaga is fantastic in it and the Golden Globe totally deserved (though I understand why that was criticized).

Comparing the episodic film German Angst by veteran Horror directors Jörg Buttgereit, Michal Kosakowski and Andreas Marschall with the high gloss TV show might be a bit of a stretch, but it’s pretty much as close as it gets me to write “Berlin Horror Story”. And it makes me wonder, if there ever was such a thing as a Berlin version of AHS, what would be the theme of each season? Getting rejected at the Berghain door after being a loyal guest for years? Getting busted for Schwarzfahren for the third time? Being gentrified out of your favorite shabby district? Oh my, our Berlin horrors seem to be quite minor… In the case of German Angst the three themes are domestic abuse, snuff porn and Nazis. Well, it figures.

If you have strong, strong guts and like a portion of real German horror you should check out the free screening of German Angst at the Flimmerzimmern event on January 21. See the trailer after the jump (it’s real extreme, don’t watch if you can’t handle some horror realness).
