  • The German Chainsaw Massacre: The First Hour of the Reunification

    1990. Germany. Directed by Christoph Schlingensief. With Karina Fallenstein, Susanne Bredehöft, Artur Albrecht, Volker Spengler, Reinald Schnell, Udo Kier, Irm Hermann, Eva Maria Kurz. In Schlingensief’s version of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre—the second part of his Germany Trilogy—Germany’s reunification in 1989 turns into an ideological battlefield. News of the Fall of the Wall sends a family of butchers from West Germany into a murderous frenzy, compelling them to turn their Eastern German compatriots into sausage. In German; English subtitles. 60 min.
