This German erotic slice-n-dicer attempts to explore the true-life mind of Lothar Schramm, a serial sex killer. He is suspected of murdering more than 12 women. His calling card was to put lipstick upon their mouths and rape them after death. The film only depicts two murders, but shows them repeatedly at different angles. He also shows Schramm's self violence as when he attaches his penis to a table with a nail. ~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide

This is another gritty, yet campy, horror flick from the director of Nekromantik (1 & 2). Being a big fan of those films I was expecting another gruesome treat. Unfortunately, Schramm doesn't deliver the goods. The film opened with a great quote from Carl Panzram (one of the most quotable serial killers ever produced) which tickled my fancy, but it just got worse and worse after that. There's a few notable macabre scenes, but not enough of them. It's just too mild of a film that's supposed to be about the memories of a serial killer. Schramm is only 65 minutes long but seems to really drag for such a short flick. The only scene I thoroughly enjoyed is when Schramm takes care of a couple of religious door-to-door missionaries the way I'd like to. That was almost worth the rental.
