THE GERMAN CHAINSAW MASSACRE (Das deutsche Kettensägen Massaker) (1990) * with hard-encoded English subtitles *

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies, banned in Germany (no doubt as potentially dangerous, sort of like romantic comedies from 1942), led the creator of the German Chainsaw Massacre to make his own version after watching bootleg versions of the American horror film. It took 14 days to make the film and was done almost immediately after the Wall came down in Berlin. In the film, bizarre West German murderers see low cost meat in the East Germans moving over the old boundary into the West and start turning them into sausage. Clara flees her sleazy spouse and the rotting East, and lands in the arms of the butchers. She is kept alive simply because the daughter of the family falls in love with her. Who knew that some 4% of the Ossies heading to the Golden West never arrived at their destination, but were instead turned into Wurst?

DVD-R is in German with hard-encoded English subtitles. Approx. 65 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
