Director: Eckhart Schmidt 

Apparently the favourite film of Japanese cannibal killer Issei Sagawa this unusual German horror drama left me a little bit disturbed. Cute 17-year-old teenager Simone has an intense crush on a dark-haired pop singer "R". The girl believes they are meant to be together,but he doesn't reply on her love letters. As she sees him for the first time she is speechless,unable even to ask for his autograph. He notices her and reaches out to touch her. Overcome with emotion Simone faints; with that first touch R's fate is sealed. When they later make love he is cold and detached.She plans the revenge which erupts into bloody murder and cannibalism... "Trance" is a remarkable horror drama about idol obsession and dysfunctional family living in their own private hell. The climax is gruesome and haunting as Simone kills and dismembers the object of her affection in a fetishistic sequence. The climatic gory mayhem is truly unforgettable. (IMDB HumanoidOfFlesh)
