Storyline

Also known as: The German Chainsaw Massacre, Das deutsche Kettensägen Massaker, Das deutsche Kettensägenmassaker, Massacre allemand à la tronçonneuse, Blackest Heart Description: In "German Chainsaw Massacre" people meet up with a household of butchers. They detect low cost meat in the East Germans moving over the old boundary into the West and start turning them into sausage. Clara flees the slaying of her sleazy spouse and the rotting East, and lands in the arms of butchers. She is held alive simply because the daughter of the family falls in love with her. This German movie is a satirical massacre splatter flick that provides lots of inexpensive gore. It's full of political overtones and has a lot to Tobe Hooper's terror classic "The Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers". If you're a lover of German gore and absurdness, check it out!. 16 million East Germans on their way to the golden West. 4% never got there: were they turned into Wuerste (sausages)? If you knew Christoph ... Written by Anonymous

In "German Chainsaw Massacre" we meet a butcher family.They recognize cheap meat in the East Germans passing over the old border into the West and begin turning them into sausage.Clara fleeing the murder of her sleazy husband and the decaying East lands in the hands of butchers.She is kept alive because the daughter of the family falls in love with her."German Chainsaw Massacre" is a satirical splatter flick that offers lots of cheap gore.It's full of political overtones and owes a lot to Tobe Hooper's horror classic "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre".I enjoyed this low-budget horror comedy and you should too,if you are a fan of German gore and absurdity.
