Der Todesking Film Poster


Surreal, experimental horror film-making with no central characters but a thematic continuity in the act of suicide over the course of one week. Starting with a body floating in blackness that slowly stretches from a foetal position and begins to decompose, it moves through more and more disturbing sequences and ideas including a girl scribbling the same word over and over, the reels of the film breaking down, a Nazi death camp sequence and a tall thin man with starey eyes and big pants.
