Antibodies (2005) NR - 4 Stars

I really liked this movie as it's one of those mind games I love so much. In German with subtitles, it's a story of a serial killer who's driving a cop insane by turning the good inside of him to evil.

Gabriel Engel (André Hennicke) is one of the most gruesome serial killers that's ever been dealt with. When he is finally brought to justice, Michael Martens (Wotan Wilke Moehring), is the cop that will be interviewing him. Engel has confessed to 13 murders but there is one more unsolved case that has his signature on it. Engel says he knows who the murderer is but will only to talk to Michael under certain conditions. Sort of mind games if you will that eventually are working their way deep into Michael's psyche. When Engel makes it personal, Michael's mental stability is put to the test.
