From the director of the infamous German cult classic Nekromantik.Official selection Midnight Movie Madness at the Toronto Film Festival (1994)Lothar Schramm (Florian Koerner von Gustorf) is dying face down in a pool of his own blood. Behind his closed eyes fractured memories repeat themselves again and again. He runs by the sea. He lusts after the whore (Monika M) across the hall. He staggers through life uncertainly. He kills.Schramm is the story of the notorious Lipstick Killer Lothar Schramm s last days on earth. Revealed in a series of tightly constructed flashbacks the film offers an unflinching look into the mind of a serial killer. Uncompromising in its depictions of violence and perversion Schramm is a poetic masterpiece guaranteed to make you squirm.Special Features include: New 1.33:1 digital transfer mastered from producer Manfred Jelinski s original 16mm negative German language in stereo and mono with new removable English subtitles Full running audio commentary by director J rg Buttgereit and co-author Franz Rodenkirchen Second audio commentary by actors Florian Koerner von Gustorf and Monika M The Making of Schramm 35 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage Mein Papi and Captain Berlin early Buttgereit Super 8 shorts subtitled in English for the first time Die Neue Zeit a music clip from Mutter directed by J rg Buttgereit An extensive gallery of over 100 stills from the collection of J rg Buttgereit and Manfred Jelinski Theatrical trailers for Nekromantik Der Todesking Nekromantik 2 and Schramm Liner notes by J rg Buttgereit and Buttgereit biographer David Kerekes Optimal image quality: RSDL dual-layer edition Much much more!System Requirements:Run Time: 161 minutesFormat: DVD MOVIE Genre: HORROR Rating: NR UPC: 690816601098 Manufacturer No: BEDVD010

"Schramm" is a movie that got my attention in a video store, both with the cover and the back cover that exclaimed that it was similar to Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, one of my favorite horror films. If you've seen Henry, you realize that there's actually a pretty big restraint on blood and gore. It's existent, but it's not that bad. The movie used atmosphere and Michael Rooker's performance to creep you out. Schramm goes up another level on that. In Schramm you get a no holds barred look at the life of a serial killer... And it's all done in 64 minutes, which makes it kind of impressive. This movie also is probably the truest account of what goes on behind a serial killers' door. Movies about serial killers show that they kill and, sometimes, why. But few films show the really dirty things about serial killers. This film gives us the self-mutilation, necrophilia, and sexual deviancy. The movie is in German and I got to praise the Germans for making a movie like this. I don't think an American director would touch this kind of material with a ten-foot pole. And if he did, he'd tone it down a lot. I, regrettably, don't remember the main characters name...But I know this. The movie begins with a newspaper headline that explains that the Lipstick Killer has died. He is, of course, our aforementioned killer. The movie works its way back from that. The prostitute that lives across the hall from him, whom he's actually good friends with, sets something off in his head that makes him begin to kill. In the movie, the body count is pretty low...But this is still very gory. One scene which is bound to make men who watch this cringe, involve the guy taking his d**k and pounding nails through it. There's also one of the most interesting and unique ideas I've seen. A disembodied vag**a with teeth.Read more ›

Well, I really thought that I had seen everything until viewing this film. It has much going for it in the area of lensing and camera work. The acting is well done. One might wonder how a short one hour film could be so disturbing, but there are images here that ring more real than "Faces of Death." Other reviewers have mentioned some spoilers, but I will only say that sometimes it seems that the cinematographer just happened upon some weird event that appeared in the film unplanned. We just happened by to catch this fellow blowing his brains out. Let's show the world. Looky! Looky!

I must admit that there were scenes in this film that were really difficult to watch. That has never happened to me except when I saw a film called "Death Scenes." There were images that made me want to wash my mind out with soap. Does anyone know what I mean? Just try eating a sandwich and watching this film at the same time, I do not believe it can be done. The real question is does anyone really want this kind of thing floating around in their brain? "Schramm" Rates as the goriest film that I have ever seen, and I do not believe I will watch it again.

Now, it is your turn. Do you want it in your brain floating around?

If you're a serial killer buff, just as i am, you'll
like Schramm.
it has some slow spots, but does deliver the goods(and bads) >:-) when necessary.

its not very long, but it does provide some insight of the ticking of the s.killer's mind.

Its more a 3.5 than a 3 tho.

Check it out.

This movie could have been amazing. It starts off very well then loses steam way too quickly. Even though it's relatively short, it still feels like it takes forever to get through. Don't be fooled by people telling you it's some kind of gory splatterfest either, it's not. There are maybe 2 gory scenes in the film, 3 tops if I recall correctly.

This movie is about a serial killer named Lothar who is friends with a hooker who lives across the hall from him. He comes off as a nice guy who is easy to talk to, but obviously that is only a disguise. He asks her a lot of questions and listens to her having sex with men in her apartment. Part of him wants to protect her, the other loathes what she does.

The beginning shows Lothar lying dead in a pool of his own blood, basically showing us the ending of the film. What follows is everything that led up to that moment. We see him killing some people who come into his home asking him about accepting Jesus into his life. He invites them in for a drink and them violently murders them.

The problem is that we keep seeing scenes being repeated over and over again. In a movie that's barely over an hour, why do we need to be shown the same scenes 3 or 4 times? There are also long scenes of Lothar having sex with a doll and cleaning it out, as well as boring conversations between him and his neighbor.

The main gruesome scene is where Lothar takes a bunch of nails and hammers them into his penis and scrotum. Supposedly, the actor did this for real, which truly is a disturbing thing to think about.

Overall, this movie isn't very good. It's not the worst movie ever, but it's disappointing to see how the movie goes from being interesting to outright boring and tedious. If you're that curious, rent it or borrow it from a friend, but I still think you'll extremely disappointed.
