Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

If you can get past cheap special effects and New Yorkers suddenly spouting German, this bizarre black comedy horror spoof is an aggressively trashy hoot. There's a ravenous prophylactic taking a bite out of the Big Apple, and it's up to slovenly, tough-as-nails NYPD detective Udo Samel (resembling a skid row Bob Hoskins) to protect mankind from this sinister threat. Shot in bleeding, oversaturated color on the streets of New York City with an all-German cast, director Martin Walz fills his film with in-your-face sleaziness and references to everything from The Godfather to Psycho to Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. The mad mix of clichés swirl detective films, monster movies, cop dramas, and mad-scientist conspiracies into a bizarre midnight movie genre soup. Samel's lecherous, well-endowed, hard-boiled detective wears his gay pride like a dare. His insatiable appetite for rent boys and young hunks may affront some viewers, but the chain-smoking tough guy in the rumpled trenchcoat makes a great, unapologetic icon for the '90s. The snaggle-toothed condoms, which look like a cross between Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors and a sock puppet with teeth, were created by Germany's bad boy of horror, Jorge Buttgereit (Nekromantic). --Sean Axmaker

Product Description

Something's invading New York. Something terrifying. Something you've never seen before! It’s the rubber that rubs you out! H.R. Giger renders an incredible universe for director Martin Walz' explosive action sequences in this big budget favorite with lavish production values and a wicked, visionary sense of humor. Safe sex just got a lot more dangerous in this outrageous horror/noir/comedy. A college professor, Mr. Smirnoff (Ralf Wolter) lures an attractive female student, who is willing to do just about anything to improve her grade, to New York's Hotel Quickie, where he avails himself of one of the free condoms provided by the management. However, the prophylactic in question has sprouted teeth and has a taste for blood, and before long, the prof is suddenly missing his member. Assigned to investigate this strange case is detective Luigi Mackeroni (Udo Samel), a detective with something hidden in his closet. When Luigi and a prostitute take a room at the Hotel Quickie for some fun and games, the detective himself is attacked by the carnivorous rubber. Now much better acquainted with his new nemesis, Luigi has to take his revenge on the killer condom, while trying to brush off the advances of burly transvestite Babette (Leonard Lansink). Killer Condom, based on a comic book by German cartoonist Ralf Koenig, features special effects by bad-boy german auteur Jorg Buttgereit (Nekromantic, Schramm) and this uncut DVD comes fully loaded with a director’s commentary, Tour of Troma Studios, special public service announcements and the Troma Intelligence Test II!

4.0 out of 5 stars Kondom des Grauens April 10, 2001
Format:DVD
This trashy masterpiece is based on a cartoon by the great German cartoonist Ralf König (he is still quite unknown outside his home country and especially in the US for some reason). Your typical hardboiled, cynical, chain-smoking trench-coat wearing Italian detective stalks the street of New York. Only this one is openly gay, and is famous for his enormous..."schwanstucker". At the Hotel Quickie in his district, an alarming number of men have lost theirs. Over-eager hookers are first suspected, but our hero soon discovers the truth when he goes to the hotel and almost loses his - to a condom with teeth! Who may be behind this fiendish creature, and how is detective Macaroni going to convince others of the existence of this killer contraceptive before it strikes again? Unlike most Troma films this film actually have a rather good and coherent (but extremely absurd) plot. It is a satirical comedy that is actually played straight for the most part. For being a European film it actually had quite a big budget. It is also interesting to notice that lots of famous German actors and celebrities clamoured to get roles in this film that would have made Hollywood stars run away in terror screaming "Career killer!!!". The bearish and openly gay actor Udo Samel who stars as detective Macaroni has previously played in famous German masterpieces such as Far Away So Close and Kasper Hauser. There is a tender (but funny) love story included too. There is no frontal nudity but there are some sex scenes that might offend. But if you are easily offended, why are you here?
The DVD version includes some nice animated menus, some Troma extras and a great comment track by the director and special effects supervisor.

5.0 out of 5 stars This one bites... January 29, 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This movie is one of the funniest I've seen. I loved how it pokes fun at those American tough-lonely-cop-in-the-big city tv shows. Now,eveytime I see the opening credits for NYPD Blue, I just couldn't help but laugh out loud. Many people had problems with the German script, but I thought it was one of its many appeals. I mean movies such as Chocolat and Enemy at the Gates are set in countries where english is not their native language and yet we didn't seem to mind about their "suspicious" english scripts.
The killer condom in the film is a metaphor for AIDS. Underneath the gore and campiness, there is a strong message in the film about tolerance and understanding. Detective Mackeroni's "uplifting" speech in the climatic scene sums it all up.
Overall, this movie is not for the faint hearted. But if the title "Killer Condom" struck you immediately then you will thoroughly enjoy this film like I did. A definite cult classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Condom Has To Do What A Condom Has To Do! October 13, 2006
Format:DVD
It may seem inexplicable.....I never believed this day would come.....No one thought it was more improbable than myself......

What's happening here? Yes, I'm getting ready to recommend a movie entitled "Killer Condom." I have divergent taste in film. I love the classics, experimental art films, independent and foreign films--highbrow stuff. But I also have a twisted side, I love a good "bad" movie too. As an adventurer, thus, I have collected several Troma titles--The Tox Box, Terror Firmer, Tromeo & Juliet and Sgt. Kabukiman to name just a few of the more recognizable DVDs. These are all films that I would recommend, surprisingly enough (at least to a certain audience). But for every decent Troma title, there are dozens of barely watchable ones. I knew "Killer Condom" was destined to be a disaster.

That's when the strangest thing happened, I enjoyed this movie. It is a genuinely clever German import! The detective story is a solid parody of classic noir. An actual plot holds the picture together, the performers are appealing, and the cheesy double entendres will have you laughing--not groaning. Then, of course, you also have the dreaded killer condom--so diabolical, so ridiculous, so toothy. It's a dream monster, a wonderful creation! You will cheer for our hero as he attempts to avenge his lost testicle!

Anyway, seriously--if this sounds like your kind of movie, I think you'll be surprised at how cohesive and entertaining this film really is. If it sounds terrible to you, I'm guessing you're not going to like it---head directly over to your copy of "Fried Green Tomatoes" and enjoy. KGHarris, 10/06.

4.0 out of 5 stars (Almost) A Cult Classic April 26, 2004
Format:DVD
What shocked me about Killer Condom was that it exceeded its low-budget expectations with a surprisingly intelligent and touching love story. So the effects weren't up to much? Pa! The central romance between hard-boiled detective Udo Samel and pretty-boy rent boy Marc Richter was genuinely affecting; the dialogue was spot-on and Martin Walz's direction (and Samel's performance in particular) were beautifully judged.

4.0 out of 5 stars What the...? November 7, 2001
Format:DVD
This movie has only one flaw...well, okay, more than one, especially if you're slightly unnerved by the title, but for those of us who have spent lots of time with Troma and know what we're in for, the only problem is the fact that you will hear "Killing Me Softly" by the Fugees (badly dubbed, to boot) over. And over. AND OVER.
Otherwise, it's lots of fun. It's always nice to see well-endowed bald gay Sicilian police detectives who speak nothing but German represented in the movies. In a lot of ways, and not just the rubber from hell, this movie is surreal; the fact that it's shot ON LOCATION in New York...with an all-German cast is just the START. Furthermore, it's obviously been written in Germany, because it feels a lot like a foreigner trying to be American in the script.
Still, the gags are immortal and some of the one-liners are hysterical ("It's...It's..." "It's exactly 30.6 centimeters long.") Pick up, especially if you love sick humor!
