A hearing-impaired young man has been fostering necrophiliac tendencies since his traumatic, incredibly abusive childhood—a proclivity he finds increasingly easy to accommodate. While police remain unsuccessful in their hunt for the necrophile who calls himself Mosquito, the perpetrator develops a fascination for his (still) very lively doll-like neighbor. Director Marijan Vajda’s obscure pulp-movie gem seems like the bastard child of Herschell Gordon Lewis and Jörg Buttgereit and gets lodged somewhere between poetically excessive, perverted misfit study and shrill blood-and-guts fare. Smack-dab in the middle of all the viscera is an outstanding Werner Pochath, an essential protagonist of a secret Austrian film history (perhaps intentionally kept under wraps?).

Guests: Alex Wank and Dieter Pochlatko

Alex Wank | AT 2020 | 40′ | dOV

Climb a bit further down into the depths of 1960s and ’70s genre cinema and you will encounter Viennese-born actor Werner Pochart playing mostly bad guys. For this short documentary portrait of the now almost forgotten actor, Alex Wank spoke with Pochath’s brother, the successful Austrian producer Dieter Pochlatko.
