Did You Know?


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 »

Crazy Credits

The opening credits list names such as "K. the Butcher Shitter" as if they were real names for the actors. The closing credits list, after the names of the actors, "and friends. And many more. Thank you" See more »

5 October 2011 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

I guess there's exactly one thing this shot-on-video cheapie has gotten right: it does seem to be a genuine attempt at giving the audience what it wants. Writer/Director (granted, both terms are used sorta loosely) Andreas Schnaas clearly seems to know lots of horror fans are in it just to see irritating people die gory deaths, but using this knowledge to make something remotely entertaining seemed like a bridge too far. So you've opened your movie with a mental patient (Karl The Butcher, an overly threatening name for a teenage guy with an oatmeal scrotum on his face) escaping from custody and wandering off into the woods, what to do now? Have some cops or local vigilantes look for him and possibly get killed in the process? Have Oatmeal Dude reach a camp/school/farm/slumber party house/hotel/convent to cause some gory mayhem? Of course not, those would be story lines (close enough at least). Instead, "Violent Sh#t" just consists of Karl walking around aimlessly and killing nameless characters 15 seconds after they've been introduced. That's literally what the whole movie is, and keep in mind it goes on for 75 mind-numbingly repetitive minutes. I never could have imagined a movie with so much splatter in it could be so ridiculously boring, but Schnaas truly has a gift. I hear this thing has two sequels, I also hear it's somewhat of a cult hit in Germany: both facts freighten me intensely.
