Đėŗ Ţøđėśķıņġ (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.

You can watch the entire film here:

Hurry, before it gets deleted!

Fun fact: Jörg Buttgereit, best known for his film Nekromantik, a graphic horror film about necrophilia, was given a Super-8 camera as his first Holy Communion present while he was in kindergarten.

  1. That deletion thing could be one reason why pirate parties exist. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pirate_Party

    • Yeah totally, I am fine with downloading stuff illegally if it’s some huge budget thing you’d never pay money to see but are just bored and want to watch something at home. I’m all about supporting good artists directly. The problem with Jörg is most of his movies are out of print or only on like VCD and just really hard to find!

  2. As for the film itself: even though it was less graphic and louder than what I expected, it still got me on my nerves by at least a bit.

    • Yeah this film is much less graphic and more experimental and surreal. If you want something more graphic by Jörg Buttgereit, definitely watch Nekromantik 1&2 and also Schramm, about the psychology of a serial killer: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108053/

      I love all his films if you can get a hold of them!
