The crazy type of character has changed dramatically in the last few years. No one can see the crazy one with the same eyes after ‘Fight Club’ happened. The universal Tyler Durden-type can be seen in every little character that has even the tiniest rebellion against anything related to society. ‘Inhumanity’ is the movie that tickles our insecurities, manages to make us want to play loud music, has playful lines, and overall is the best way to express your anger when you are not at a heavy metal concert. For us, this film has the right balance of hot-crazy delight that one could ask for. It is one part horror, two parts anger, and a tablespoon of romance that makes it all worthwhile.
Herbert Gantner’s ‘Inhumanity’ has two very special and amazingly written characters, which easily stand out among tens of other characters we’ve seen in horror films – Kaj and Katharina. They both have mental problems, they are the true outcasts, the ones that are trapped inside themselves and can find the way out only through each other. At a first glance, their problems may seem deep and singular in a world full of problems, but as the narrative grows, we can see that they share the problems of the other ninety-nine percent of the population. Kaj, in his youth, was bullied and now he wants revenge; he is the prototype of the skinny snowflake that was the main target for all the bullies in school. Now, he is a grown man and he wants revenge! Katharina, on the other side, has abandonment issues, and everything in her life perished when her mother left her and her father. She is insecure, feeling like everything around her is changing but she is not ready for how things turn out. Their relationship has one key figure that is in some way the root of all evil.
‘Inhumanity’ may not be for everyone for the sole purpose of having graphic depictions of cruelty, all with the help of a consistent and powerful cinematography. Nevertheless, we absolutely loved it, and since ‘Fight Club’ and ‘Clockwork Orange’, we have not seen such a perfect depiction of insanity as a state of the art delight.
