"Tatort" quick check: Scary case from Vienna: In this crime thriller reigns supreme

The Catholic priest Manfred Gabler is found dead in downtown Vienna. He was severely abused and then pushed down a flight of stairs. For the church he worked in the so-called deliverance service. "People like to talk about an exorcist," the inspectors Moritz Eisner (Harald Krassnitzer) and Bibi Fellner (Adele Neuhauser) learn when they ask around in the archdiocese. During their investigations they come across the psychiatrist August Sittsam (Sven Eric Bechtolf), who worked with Gabler, and the scientist Tea Berkovic (Angela Gregovic), who researches exorcism. In addition, an ominous Nathalie (Maresi Riegner) comes into focus: the young woman claims to be possessed by a demon, breaks objects with superhuman strength and eats dog food to the horror of Eisner and Fellner.

Pictures falling off the wall, water turning to blood, hanged women who suddenly stretch out their hands: this "crime scene" is creepy. Director and screenwriter Thomas Roth uses classic elements of the horror genre and creates images that will send shivers down the spine of the viewer at one time or another. Excitement is guaranteed in any case.

"Pimp or bouncer?" Moritz Eisner asks his colleague Bibi Fellner, when she accidentally pulls an "old acquaintance" out of the hat who provides the crucial clues. Fellner's past in the custom and its connection to the milieu has already been discussed in numerous cases. Bringing it up again and again or making it the decisive plot line is redundant in the long run. In addition, the case does not always manage the balancing act between claim and silliness: in addition to Goethe and Dante quotes, some dialogues about demons and witches seem involuntarily funny.

The case brings back memories of the past for Bibi Fellner. Her grandmother used to conjure spirits in her house, she reports to her colleague Eisner. "That was spooky." When inexplicable things happen in Fellner's apartment and Eisner also finds a satanic sign on his apartment door, the inspectors begin to ponder.

Not a case after which you go to bed relaxed on a Sunday evening. If you're a little scared, you might want to skip this "crime scene" episode.
