TOP 50 REVIEWERon 15 February 2014
This is a film about a murderer, plain and simple. The star is the ruggedly handsome Niklas Peters. We are told this is a `thriller' and yet almost from the get go we know that Nick gets a buzz out of killing his lovers - male or female, normally during a full moon. He has just `offed' his boyfriend and is now in Berlin with a cover story of researching condo's for his father. He is looking for a room share and happens upon photographer Philip and his actress friend `Lillie' the blurb indicates that they are in some sort of relationship but they are not.

Nik starts an affair with Lillie and insinuates his way into Philips' affections but all the time he is planning for them to get to meet God early. Along the way he has some random flings and random killings and we get a bit of an insight into the lives of his soon to be victims. Lillie is doing a play in English with the World's most dysfunctional director which is actually really good, when we have those segments. This though just never really takes off, the plot is so waffer thin that the `thriller' aspect of the piece is all but redundant - you always know what is going to come - forgive the pun.

There is a lot of flesh on show and one full frontal, but that is not what this film should be about. It is also quite short with a run time of 70 minutes which is probably a good thing as there is not a great deal to fill up any more screen time. It is in German with some English and good sub titles, the acting is all pretty good too. But overall it lacks the thrills, lacks the menace which would have made a good substitute for `thrills' and does not have a lot to say - there are some questionable antics too, like running round a Berlin forest semi dressed and covered in blood without anyone spotting him - the rest you can spot quite easily for yourself. This is not a bad film it's just not very good but I still found enough to keep me viewing; might be one to rent rather than keep.

Horribly contrived and unbelievable story, both weak in delivery and character. The story is simple enough - Nic an attractive and likeable character, is secretly a serial murder unable to control his lust for murder (usually at a full moon). He manages to literally worm his way into the lives of others, feeding of their insecurity and seduces them physically, emotionally and sexually. He even attempts to convince himself that he has finally managed to find a way to control his blood lust, only to lapse into a familiar carnality and murder spree.

The fact that he manages to get away with so much, and his open frivolity at hiding the bodies in broad daylight, makes for a highly unbelievable sequence of events. His murder spree is gruesome and shambolic, with a multiple number of victims. Yet the police seem openly lethargic, and somewhat disinterested. This is certainly not the Germany I know, where a single murder is enough to illicit a significant police response.

Stoically acted, with little (if any) redeeming characters. Unfortunate in many ways, but for the relatively good looking leading man.

Disappointing for German cinema, particularly in the light of "Summer Storm" and "Free Fall". The Director really good have told this story so much better.

God knows how they raised the finance to make such a load of junk. Maybe someone was in love with the lead man? The plot is rubbish, the filming bad and it would be a complete waste of money to buy it. 'Loose cannons' is a bit better and if you like gayish books read Magic Lobsters and flying Tagines!

I only wanted to give the film 11/2 stars but the new review page does not seem to allow half stars. Strange film, poor acting, direction? was there any if so very rudimentary, and the ending was for me a total cop out. I did note the end credits had a reference to the Ballad of Reading Goal, and I can't think what it can be!!

OK- the bodies are good and toned-but the 'story'!! Totally unbelievable and contrived. What this guy got away with is UNBELIVEABLE man! Nice eye-candy-but when you've said that-you've said it ALL!

This is a weird one. If your looking for a happy ending look elsewhere. Sex scenes are heterosexual, bar one with a tranny. Hot male lead though and it is a bit different.

I found this film ostensibly about the activities and motivation of a serial killer, unconvincing and lacking in focus. The acting particularly that of the female lead is amateurish and the director's habit of suddenly blacking out scenes I found disconcerting. Comment has already been made about the ludicrous circumstances surround the disposal of the victims and even the supposed twist at the end was predictable.

disappointing comes across as a poor B movie a little more gay sex and a little less violence might have helped
