Prelude to Halloween


A man is released from prison after serving four years for murdering an elderly woman. He quickly begins to feel the compulsion to kill again.

Our take

Prelude to Halloween continues with this infamous cult movie from Austria that dives into the life and mind of a serial killer and doesn’t look back. Intimately confined to the perspective of the killer, Angst is a risky yet altogether complex vision of the human mind gone astray.
