DER TODESKING

Jörg Buttgereit, Germany, 1990, Cult Epics, Horror - Germany

“Seven vignettes of suicide and/or violent death interspersed with time-lapse of a putrefying corpse, DER TODESKING is by turns moving, funny, sad, perplexing, horrifying -- but always rooted in sympathy and understanding for the everyday loneliness, estrangement, losses, neuroses and anguish which drive such actions.” -- Nathaxnne Walker, Letterboxd

German provocateur Jorg Buttgereit first made international waves with 1987’s NEKROMANTIC: the controversial, frequently banned cult film with transgressive necrophilic imagery. Not one to take this stuff lightly, Buttgereit’s ‘89 followup DER TODESKING delivers multiple fermented flavors of psyche-shattering discovery. Divided into days of the week, it’s a tapestry of intertwining harrowing vibes, like a bizarro SHORT CUTS.
