I’m super confused as to where this project truly is at, but all I know is that I want it.
The team behind German Angst failed on Kickstarter, but have succeeded on other platforms, and even though the movie has allegedly not been shot yet, there’s an incredible trailer. Go figure.
Filmed, not filmed, whatever the case is, Bloody Disgusting must see this new anthology come into fruition.
The project brings three maverick German directors together for a trio of urban nightmares in a fascinating horror anthology – and present a new vision of the genre.
German Angst is an extreme-horror collaboration between Jorg Buttgereit (Nekromantik, Der Todesking), Andreas Marchall (Tears of Kali, Masks) and Michael Kosakowoski (Zero Killed) that leads you into the dark alleyways of contemporary Berlin in stories of love, sex and death.
The first episode, Jörg Buttgereit’s “Final Girl”, tells the story of a young girl who lives alone with her guinea pig in a rundown apartment in Berlin. But is she really alone? In the bedroom lies a man, bound and gagged…
In the episode “Alraune” by Andreas Marschall, a young man stumbles upon a secret sex club in Berlin’s nightlife that promises the ultimate sexual frontier experience by using a drug made from the roots of the legendary Mandragora plant. But the ecstatic experiences have horrific side effects…
“Make A Wish” by Michal Kosakowski is a disturbing fable in which a deaf-mute couple of Polish origin are attacked by a sadistic Neo-Nazi gang. In possession of a powerful amulet, the couple try to turn the tables on their assailants and wreak a terrible revenge, albeit paying a heavy price.
German Angst celebrates the return of cult director Jörg Buttgereit after a twenty-year absence from horror filmmaking, while Andreas Marschall continues his exploration of a dark underworld embossed by lust, sex and the psyche and Michal Kosakowski confronts us with violence in all levels of society today, and throws the viewer’s preconceptions back on themselves.
Whether a hardcore horror fan or a newcomer to the genre, film lovers everywhere can look forward to a terrifying visual feast.
