After being committed for 17 years, Michael Myers, now a grown man and still very dangerous, escapes from the mental institution (where he was committed as a 10 year old) and he immediately returns to Haddonfield, where he wants to find his baby sister, Laurie. Anyone who crosses his path is in mortal danger.
When a successful country lawyer captures and attempts to "civilize" the last remaining member of a violent clan that has roamed the Northeast coast for decades, he puts the lives of his family in jeopardy.

In Germany, as graduate student Katie Armstrong researches cannibal killer Oliver Hagen for her thesis, she becomes obsessed with her subject and ultimately plunges into a lifestyle similar to Hagen's and the thousands of people like him. Written by
"Inspired" by the real life story of the "Cannibal of Rotenburg", Armin Meiwes, who mutilated, killed, and finally ate a man who had previously agreed to Meiwes doing just that with him. Both men met on the Internet where media subsequently discovered vast communities of people fantasizing about eating and being eaten by others sharing their "quirk". See more »
Oliver Hartwin wanted to eat someone. Simon Grombeck wanted to be eaten. They were a perfect match.

Nowhere nearly as brutal and harrowing as Marian Dora's "Cannibal".
"Rohtenburg" by Martin Weisz is based on a true crime case of German cannibal Armin Meiwes,who butchered and cannibalized computer programmer Bernd-Jurgen Brandes after putting on necrobabes.com an advertisement "I'm looking for a normally built young man between 18 and 25 years for a real slaughter and consumption".It was ultimately banned in Germany due to a lawsuit in which Meiwes successfully argued that the film slandered his deeds and made him look bad.As a person who is really interested in the darkest human deeds I had to watch it.The performances by Thomas Huber as Simon and particularly Thomas Kretschmann as Oliver are very strong,but the film lacks gore and horrifying images of "Cannibal".I also think that Keri Russel's character is completely bland and unnecessary.The film would be better without it.Overall,this film left me a little bit disappointed.Check out Marian Dora's "Cannibal" or horrifying documentary "The Man Who Ate His Lover" for much better understanding of this fascinating case.
