Director Christian Alvart | 2007 | 127 minutes | Horror, Thriller, Foreign | German
German director Christian Alvart (Case 39) creates a psychological thriller with shocking twists and turns from the moment it hits the screen. Serial killer Gabriel Engel has brutally slaughtered at least a dozen boys and creates art with their blood. When the psychopath is captured, Berlin police is poised to close the string of murders. But in a nearby village, a simple rural cop, Michael Martens, is consumed with solving the homicide of a young local girl. In spite of the evidence, he is convinced that the crimes are connected. As Michael hopes to get a confession from Gabriel, his inquiries pull him into the twisted mind of the deranged killer. When the investigation takes an unexpected turn, the real killer may be much closer to Michael than ever imagined.
“The film’s pace is brisk enough to maintain our full attention. Antibodies is not so much an art house movie as a well-made, commercial thriller that happens to be in German.”
– Los Angeles Times
“Antibodies is fairly riveting, thanks to Alvart’s command of craft and tone. He’s a director to watch.”
– L.A. Weekly
“A tangible sense of evil lingers over this German serial killer shocker, but the introduction of religious symbolism tips the action into self-conscious melodrama.”
