NEKROMANTIK
1987, Werkstattkino, 75 min, West Germany, Dir: Jörg Buttgereit

Justifiably notorious, this oft-banned cult film is not for the squeamish! Rob Schmadtke (Bernd Daktari Lorenz) has the perfect job for a necrophiliac: cleaning up places where people have been killed. His girlfriend, Betty (Beatrice Manowski), has a similar fetish, and when Rob brings his work home with him one day, he has a rotting rival for her affections. Shot on a shoestring budget using Super 8 film, NEKROMANTIK has a home-movie feel that makes its story even more unsettling. In German with English subtitles.


SCHRAMM: INTO THE MIND OF A SERIAL KILLER
1994, Werkstattkino, 65 min, Germany, Dir: Jörg Buttgereit

As “Lipstick Killer” Lothar Schramm (Florian Koerner von Gustorf) lies dying, his life flashes before his eyes - and it’s pretty grim. A loner who drives a taxi, Schramm is attracted to a prostitute who lives next door but is unable to initiate a real relationship with her - and so works out his kinks on random victims. Bizarre and disturbing, with a sense of the mental anguish underlying the (sometimes quite graphic) violence. In German with English subtitles.


Due to extreme sexual and graphic violence, no one under 18 will be admitted.
