"Tatort: ​​The Gate to Hell": This is how the new Vienna thriller will be

A dead Catholic priest, mysterious events and eerie characters: the name of the new "crime scene: the gateway to hell" (October 2, 8:15 p.m., the first) from Vienna says it all. The two investigators Moritz Eisner (Harald Krassnitzer, 62) and Bibi Fellner (Adele Neuhauser, 63) deal with supernatural things. What initially looks like a classic murder case develops into a paranormal horror trip - including Viennese jest, of course. But does that fit together?

Manfred Gabler (Tino Sekay) is found dead at the foot of a staircase - with numerous injuries. These are not only from the fall, but show that he was abused before his death. Gabler was a Catholic priest and strangely enough has an amulet with the symbol of Satan on him. The reason for this is quickly found: Prelate Gabler carried out the so-called liberation service. So he was an exorcist, which still exists in many countries and dioceses.

His schedule shows that he had an appointment with a person "N" shortly before his death. Perhaps an important witness? But nobody can tell Fellner and Eisner who this person is. The two investigators take a close look at Gabler's surroundings. His successor in office did not always agree with the prelate's methods, and there is also a scientist who was interested in data that the deceased is said to have possessed. There's also a psychiatrist who examined Gabler's patients and a former pimp who might be able to help the detectives. Above all, Fellner and Eisner ask themselves: What is the motive for the murder?

Not necessarily. The Viennese "Tatort: ​​The Gate to Hell" is not for crime fans who can't do anything with the horror genre. In addition to exorcisms, viewers are treated to paranormal phenomena. Those responsible could have saved the strip for Halloween. To pass as a real shocker, however, the relevant goosebumps and moments of shock are missing. Instead, the "crime scene" bobbles somewhere between the genres - which is a shame.

Unfortunately, the relatively large number of characters doesn't make it any better. No character gets enough space to unfold or become tangible for the audience. Instead, you end up wondering if this or that person was really needed for the story. In addition, it is difficult to follow the plot in some places. Especially at the showdown, everything is dealt with too quickly. Many question marks remain at the end - and if you don't listen carefully, you could miss the solution to the case.

But there are also good sides: Between devils and ghosts, the makers have not forgotten the usual humorous dialogues. Fellner and Eisner loosen up the serious mood, which is definitely good for the film. So if you want to get a little scared, you can tune in on Sunday evening. Otherwise, it remains to be hoped that the next "crime scene" from Vienna will find its way back to its usual course - and leave the devil out of the game.
