DER SAMURAI

DER SAMURAI

“DER SAMURAI is the type of film I live for: well made and weird.” – TwitchFilm.com

Unlike any other horror film you’ll see this year, DER SAMURAI is a German mind-bender about shape-shifting cross-dressers, bloody decapitations, repressed sexual desires and small town life. But while director Till Kleinert’s film is a surreal mix of dark comedy and eerie creep-out that recalls David Lynch. Jakob is a policeman in a village deep in the woods, where little happens until the arrival of a mysterious wolf that is causing havoc. Working the night shift, Jakob is tracking the wolf…only to discover that the lupine lurker is actually a man clad only in lipstick and a ladies’ slip, and toting a samurai sword that he uses to lop off the heads of the townspeople, including Jakob’s tormentors. Jakob and the transvestite samurai seem to share a bond, and as the night gets darker, events get even weirder. Completely bizarre yet wildly entertaining, DER SAMURAI is a horror must-see for the adventurous!

“A lot of different interpretations are going to be reached about the film, which is one of the reasons it’s so damn exciting.” – Bloody-Disgusting.com

“DER SAMURAI will burn in your brain long after the heads, and the credits, have rolled.” – DreadCentral.com

“The opening scenes of DER SAMURAI carry that pleasurable feeling that can be hard to come by on the current horror scene: The sense of not knowing at all where the story’s going, but that the filmmaker knows just what he’s doing.” – Fangoria
