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?
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 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.

Schramm is the most accessible of Jorg Buttegereit's movies, yet is still incredibly disturbing. Schramm is a serial killer, at least he dreams of being one. Read morePublished on October 16, 2010 by Channel KDK12
