Der Todesking (aka The Death King) is a 1989 German horror film directed by Jörg Buttgereit. This experimental style movie which does not use central characters explores the topic of suicide and violent death in the form of seven episodes, each one attributed to one day of the week. These episodes are enframed by the vision of a human body, slowly rotting during the course of the movie.


I believe this is Jorg Buttgereit's masterpiece. Some scenes are better and more effective then others, but they all work. A beautifully shot film that is genuinely depressing with no laughable moments.

Yeah, this is a good one...first saw it years ago on a VHS boot...Never did pick up the DVD that was available though...It's the last Buttgereit's flick I need...

Man, I wish he would do something extreme again...

Although, I hear he is doing a Captain Berlin movie...

Yeah that Captain Berlin would be fun indeed, as for this film it is the last one I need to see, never picked it up, the DVD was kind of expensive, but hell I should just grab it sometime!
