Dir. Eckhart Schmidt. 1982, 92 mins. DCP. With Désirée Nosbusch, Jonas Vischer, Simone Brahmann, Helga Tölle, Bodo Staiger. Though her life is filled with typical adolescent angst, Simone (Désirée Nosbusch) does find solace in her crush on a pop star known only as ”R.” However, after meeting her idol and discovering that her love is unrequited, hero worship quickly becomes murderous obsession as Simone leads her erstwhile Prince Charming into a plot of shocking revenge. This sordid and subversive art-house horror essential delights as it revolts audiences with its shocking scenario, sleek synth soundtrack, and gorgeous design aesthetic.
