Critic Reviews for Antikörper (Antibodies)
Antibodies brings together a philosophically minded serial killer, a devoutly religious cop and a cynical filmmaker clearly itching to go Hollywood.
A German thriller that isn't shy about ripping off The Silence of the Lambs.
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.
Instead of reinventing the procedural mechanics of the serial-killer drama, filmmaker Christian Alvert adds to its current state of retardation with desperate atmospherics and a cheap disquisition on sex and religion.
Alvart adorns everything in portentous biblical trappings but is more interested in sleek visuals and rug-pulling gimmicks than his protagonist's (histrionically handled) moral conflict.
Audience Reviews for Antikörper (Antibodies)
Splendid German made serial-killer thriller. Yeah it's very similar to the likes of "The Silence of the Lambs" and "Se7en" but it's's still gripping and grisly enough for fans of the genre to enjoy with a plethora of twists to keep you hooked till the end. André Hennicke is creepy in the extreme as the sick paeodophillic killer. The films ending is an odd one but it doesn't completely ruin the film. Worth a watch!
Not since the movie "Seven" has a dark thriller been as disturbingly exciting to watch. Slow at times, but those moments are needed to catch your breath!! As far as psychological thrillers go, this one is hard to beat! Only flaw is reading subtitles distracts from the tension!
"What did you expect? Hannibal Lecter?" Long wanted serial killer Gabriel Engel gets arrested in a spectacular police strike. Small town cop Michael Martens travels to the big city to interrogate him. He associates a brutal murder case with the killer's method and hopes to close the case by getting a confession from Engel. Instead the clash of the two totally opposite characters shakes Michaels beliefs to the ground, turning him into a dangerous threat to the people around him.
