This is a psychological "thriller" with some unintentionally funny moments, a few dangerous stunts and definitely "accidental" reencounters. Perhaps a crossing between "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari", "Dante's Inferno" and "Schulm├Ądchen-Report School Girls Report".

Conclusions: You shouldn't steal a dead man's covid mask, and it's not over til it's over. Some cuts drive you nuts, but the overlength is delightful.
