Synopsis by Mark Deming
A criminal learns he has more to fear than the police in this tale of supernatural horror. Roman (Gustavo Salami) is a thief on the run after robbing a bank; understandably eager to avoid prying eyes, Roman stops at a nearly deserted hotel overseen by a ghoulish manager (Norbert Schwientek). After Roman is shown to his room, he discovers a red dress is hanging in the closet -- and a dead girl (Vanessa Augustin) is hanging in his bathroom. Desperate to avoid the attention of police, Roman bundles the body into a large suitcase and drags it away to a filling station. However, no sooner has he disposed of the dead child than he sees a girl who looks exactly like the victim playing near the hotel, setting in motion a strange cycle of terror. Orgienhaus was screened at the 2000 San Sebastian Film Festival.
