Absurd & Deranged
I was surprised to see very few reviews for this film absurdist gem and after digging movies directed by the legendary Herbert Achternbusch, this might be the best and controversial outing. The Ghost is a grotesque satire may seem a bit out of date in the humor quotient, but it is a essential viewing for those who love absurd cinema. The story is of Jesus Christ has returned in Bavarian Monastery in the form of a rather palpable ghost and lives on bread and wine. He is the 42nd Lord wearing a crown of thorns that itches, mocks the mother Superior, also deals with drunken legionnaires and fulfils his chores as a waiter in the cloister tavern. It is a very tricky subject to bring it on the big screen and Achternbusch had and still has the guts to do it amidst the controversies, even the clips from this movie will come in handy for Blasphemous Black Metal bands. Brownie points for Werner Schorter's role, it is a must see for his fans.
