Product Details

If you can get past cheap special effects and New Yorkers suddenly spouting German, this bizarre black comedy horror spoof is an aggressively trashy hoot. There's a ravenous prophylactic taking a bite out of the Big Apple, and it's up to slovenly, tough-as-nails NYPD detective Udo Samel (resembling a skid row Bob Hoskins) to protect mankind from this sinister threat. Shot in bleeding, oversaturated color on the streets of New York City with an all-German cast, director Martin Walz fills his film with in-your-face sleaziness and references to everything from The Godfather to Psycho to Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. The mad mix of clichés swirl detective films, monster movies, cop dramas, and mad-scientist conspiracies into a bizarre midnight movie genre soup. Samel's lecherous, well-endowed, hard-boiled detective wears his gay pride like a dare. His insatiable appetite for rent boys and young hunks may affront some viewers, but the chain-smoking tough guy in the rumpled trenchcoat makes a great, unapologetic icon for the '90s. The snaggle-toothed condoms, which look like a cross between Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors and a sock puppet with teeth, were created by Germany's bad boy of horror, Jorge Buttgereit (Nekromantic).
