A slow burner with effective moments of tension
6 June 2018 | by matthewhemmingsSee all my reviews

Writing this because the other two reviews listed have spoilers, and personally I like to see a review when flicking through movies on here.

Our lead gets his first job in three years, and is tasked with liquidating a company. Not a fun job for any regular human being, but made worse for our guy by his previous mental issues.

I knew next to nothing about this film going in and that's how I like it.

It's a slow burner, and the empty office setting is used effectively. A few times the hairs on my arm rose, such was the tension created. The odd jump scare but definitely not a tactic overused here.

Found my copy on the excellent WIPFilms, for me the single greatest resource of unusual and rare cinema on the web today.

Seek it out if you're a fan of slower horrors or German cinema in general.
