Arrow video is releasing a very limited edition Schramm Blu-Ray in the UK on July 29th, 2019. Jörg Buttgereit’s disturbing horror movie is being presented on home video with a whole stack of special features, including the complete soundtrack on CD and 60-page booklet. You can check out the special bonus features and cover artwork below, including a direct link to pre-order the film RIGHT HERE!

Controversial German filmmaker Jörg Buttgereit (Nekromantik, Nekromantik 2) takes you into the twisted mind of a deranged sex killer in the last of his feature films to date, 1993’s deeply disturbing Schramm.

Synopsis: “Lothar Schramm, the so-called Lipstick Killer, lies dying in a pool of blood and paint. As he expires, fragments of his life flash before his eyes his uneasy friendship with the prostitute that lives next door (Nekromantik 2‘s Monika M); the brutal slaughter of a pair of doorstep evangelists whose bodies he poses in obscene fashion; his unhealthy pastime of hammering nails into his own manhood.

Told in an entirely non-linear fashion, Jörg Buttgereit’s Schramm with its nightmarish hallucinatory sequences involving severed limbs and gaping, sharp-toothed female genitalia comes about as close as a film can get to transporting you directly into the world of a sick, disordered mind.
