Rating: N/A

Dir: Jorg Buttgereit
Star: Daktari Lorenz, Marion Koob, Jorg Buttgereit, Franz Rodenkirchen

[5] Made by JB before Nekromantik, this short film is a simple tale of boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy rapes girl & kills himself, girl gives birth to baby, baby mutates into monster and kills girl and lover with a broken bottle. Not bad going for half an hour, and almost standard Buttgereit fare! The FX, though cheap, are imaginatively used (true of the film in general) and the fact it’s in German is no problem. As with a lot of Jorg’s work, it’s a little difficult to tell where the man is being serious – for the sake of his sanity, I hope it isn’t very often…
