One of the most perverse horror films ever made.
28 September 2004 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Mosquito the Rapist" is a gross,creepy and disturbing horror film that truly has to be seen to be believed.This strange necrophilia shocker offers few haunting moments and contains truly eerie mood throughout.Werner Pochath plays a nameless deaf mute accountant,who is still recovering from horrific child abuse.He has a weird fixation with blood spilling across his skin.One night he breaks into the local mortuary and ravages really pretty female corpse.Now addicted,he raids the tombs of the dead and drinks blood from their throats via a glass straw.This seriously twisted and perverse piece of sleazy horror was apparently a major influence on Jorg Buttgereit's "Nekromantik".There is some gore and plenty of sleaze,so fans of exploitation cinema won't be disappointed.Unfortunately this obscure gem is rather hard to find,but if you get a chance watch it.9 out of 10.
