“…One of the most chilling portraits of psychotic teenage obsession ever committed to film.” – Celluloid Scream Festival

Teenager Simone (Desiree Nosbusch – former Radio Luxembourg host and future TV star/Falco collaborator) is seventeen years old and obsessed with a pop star. But soon her fixation on New Wave singer «R» – Bodo Staiger of real life synth-pop band Rheingold, who also composed DER FAN’s superb soundtrack – takes over her life. She sends him countless unanswered letters, walks out of her school, breaks off from her friends and parents and busts in on the latest “R” video shoot at a local TV station to get his attention.

Simone wants nothing more than to love and be loved by «R». But when he coldly uses and leaves her, and turns out to not be everything she hoped for, Simone’s homicidal delusions begin to fixate on a final, terrible sacrifice.

DER FAN (The Fan) is a shocking and controversial film presented here in a rare English language 35mm print.
