Contrary to popular belief, Andreas Schnaas does not play Karl (or "K. The Butcher Shitter" as he is listed in the opening credits). Instead, Andreas plays the man who is chopped in half by Karl. The movie's ending and opening credits do not assign character names to the actors, which is probably the reason for the confusion. See more »

An escaped psycho with a massive meat-cleaver hacks his way through lots of people, meets Jesus, and 'gives birth' to a baby.
German underground horror director Andreas Schnaas' definitely can't be accused of giving his debut splatter-fest a misleading title: Violent Sh*t is both violent and sh*t! Without even the slightest hint of an intelligible plot to get in the way of the endless barrage of offensive visuals, the film acts primarily as a showcase for Schnaas' cheap-jack gore effects, which range from the fairly routine (severed heads, hands and assorted meat-cleaver murders) to the downright revolting (a woman is cut open from her snatch upwards and disembowelled).
The blood gushes in impossibly bright red, the various prosthetic body-parts look thoroughly unconvincing, the dialogue is dreadful (best/worst line: 'this bullsh*tting job is f*ucking me to sh*ts'), there is an overuse of horrible video effects (solarisation and shuddery imagery), all the actors are unattractive with the majority sporting nasty mullets or perms, and no-one even thinks to fight back against the killer.
However, despite being one of the most inane, poorly constructed, and downright shoddy pieces of film-making I'll probably ever see, I've got to admit that, as a card carrying gore-hound, I enjoyed Violent Sh*t just a little for its sheer audacity, and occasionally, its plain weirdness.
4.5 out of 10, rounded up to 5 for IMDb.
