1991, AGFA, 104 min, Germany, Dir: Jörg Buttgereit

The living dead return in Jörg Buttgereit’s ultra gory and sexy follow-up to his original arthouse horror masterpiece. Monika works as a nurse by day, while at night she raids graveyards to satisfy her necro lust behind the back of her boyfriend, Mark. Her life becomes even more complicated when she acquires the fresh corpse of a recent suicide victim and finds herself in a love triangle between the living and the dead.

2015, Artsploitation Films, 112 min, Germany, Dir: Jörg Buttgereit, Andreas Marschall, Michal Kosakowski

Three filmmakers create a triptych of horrors guaranteed to scare and provoke! Provocateur extraordinaire Jörg Buttreig returns with a simple tale of killers and animals; you’ll never look at hamsters the same way again. Andreas Marschall is back with a dark dream of sexual desire, morbid curiosity and monsters of a very real kind. Finally, Michal Kosakowski brings forth a tale of history repeating with most offensive results - a frightening exploration of the division of guilt. With English subtitles.

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.
