Vein-throbbing, foaming, red-eyed maniac Klaus Kinski was the most notorious wildman to ever torment a filmmaker.

His on- and off-screen rampages against his collaborators are the stuff of legend, and have been the subject of documentaries, articles and countless muttered rumors. In Kinski's autobiography, he detailed several of these thunderous clashes (a few chapters after allegedly having sex with his teenage sister), but none were more epic than the chaos tornado he caused on the set of CRAWLSPACE.

By 1986, the German actor had achieved absolute delusional godhood, and no director could stand in the way of his self-declared genius. Not even underappreciated David Schmoeller, the man behind overlooked horror treasure TOURIST TRAP, could reign in Kinski's mania for a story about an ex-Nazi landlord who tortures and annihilates his slum-dwelling boarders.

The result is a deeply uncomfortable celluloid war between a monstrous megalom aniac and the universe that could not hold him. (Zack)
