VAMPIROS SEXOS (aka I WAS A TEENAGE ZABBADOING)

Carl Andersen, Austria, 1988, Cult Epics, Arthouse

Carl Andersen’s films are the European answer to the Cinema of Transgression -- except more extreme, eccentric, surreal and genuinely erotic.

Andersen’s debut is the ultimate European underground punk rock hardcore sex vampire film. Stylish and trashy at the same time in the best sort of way, the film also features an endlessly entrancing no-wave score by Model D’oo.

“Even more strange and plotless than Andersen’s MONDO WEIRDO, it opens with an announcement that we're watching the saga of ‘Jasmin Strange! Queen of vampires from planet Arus!,’ sent to Earth because of tainted olive oil(?) to tangle with two cops, Adolf Clouseau (??) and Inspector Heid, and remove the corrupted consumer goods in film canisters (???) before they fall into the hands of the wicked Van Helsing. From there it's a wordless melee of slapstick, nudity, aggressive new wave music, handcrafted comic intertitles, burlesque routines, bathtub lesbians, decapitations, hardcore sex, a FASTER, PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL T-shirt, a folk guitar solo, and Lene Lovich-inspired hairstyles. It's pretty nuts.” (Nathaniel Thompson, Mondo Digital)
