Late at night, a woman is kidnapped by an unknown assailant and taken back to his blood-spattered dungeon, where he turns her into a "flower of blood and flesh" through a series of dismemberment and evisceration.
Lothar Schramm is a simple man with complex problems, yet he seems like such a nice guy. He works as a taxi driver and lives by himself where he is happy to answer his door to strangers and kill them outright. As with many shy loner types he has a problem dealing with woman so he drugs them and photographs their nude bodies for sexual stimulation. He then murders his helpless victims and so goes the life of a deranged serial killer.Written by
The movie tells the story of a man who has been known in the media as the 'Lipstick Killer'. In reality, there was a serial killer who was given that nickname and because of this, people often think that the film is based on the same serial killer. However, this is a common mistake as there is no correlation between the two. See more »
Realistic way to go into the mind of a serial killer
This was an interesting film. I think this is the type of film that people either love or hate and it's not something you can really recommend to people since people need to enjoy these types of movies.
I must give credit for really going into the mind of a serial killer in a realistic way. This wasn't a gore feast of an angry guy running around killing people. This was a very lonely man who felt bad for what he did and without a word he expressed how guilty he was and the mental anguish he felt for what he was doing. You could tell the guy hated himself for what he did and all of this was explained silently and realistically.
The thing that sticks out the most when I think about this movie is character connection. I find in a lot of scary movies they just can't quite grab me on that one. This movie I felt very connected to the character especially the serial killers friend and love, his neighbour the prostitute. I loved her character and really wanted to hear her story and see more of her.
