Synopsis

In Schlingensief’s alternative vision of German reunification, a group of East German emigrants encounter a West German family of psychotic butchers. As the film’s tagline suggests: ‘They came as friends and became sausage!’ Schlingensief’s satirical horror film transposes the basic formula of the slasher genre within the context of a reunified Germany and mixes black comedy and trash aesthetics with his more experimental approaches, exposing the free market economy as the meat market it is!
