Die Würghand

Die Würghand

Synopsis

Die Würghand provided an ideal projection for the manifestation of a film star as a femme fatale: A beautiful, unscrupulous woman (Carmen Cartellieri), in the midst of a mysterious family secret, faced with murders and supernatural deaths. Die Würghand can be read as an Austrian prototype of trashy B-movies, still fascinated by the film colours and an over exaggeration of facial expressions and gestures.
