While horror anthologies seem to be a dime a dozen these days, it isn't that often that one is able to wrangle a cult legend like Jorg Buttegereit into returning to the genre after a 20 year absence. German Angst
has done just that, but it's not a done deal just yet.
The producers of the film are looking for money to get the project on the move, and they've put together quite a convincing Kickstarter proposal. Buttegereit (Nekromantik
, Der Todesking
) is joined by Andreas Marschall (Masks
, Tears of Kali
) and Michal Kosakowski (Zero Killed
), both of whom are also big figures in the German genre film scene. Frankly, looking through the conceptual material and examples of actual footage shot, this thing looks like it could be fantastic, and giving these guys access to a workable budget would be a dream to hardcore horror fans.
US Distributor Cult Epics' Nico B put together a little proposal for you, which I'll copy below, HOWEVER, I strongly suggest that you check out the amazing artwork on the Kickstarter page, because if that doesn't convince you that this needs to be made, nothing will:
GERMAN ANGST on KICKSTARTER 10.10.2013
We need your support!
Three maverick German directors bring you three urban nightmares in a fascinating horror anthology - and present a new vision of the genre.
GERMAN ANGST is an extreme-horror collaboration between JÖRG BUTTGEREIT (Nekromantik, Der Todesking), ANDREAS MARSCHALL (Tears of Kali, Masks) and MICHAL KOSAKOWSKI (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.
