Storyline

Premutos is the first of the fallen Angels, even before Lucifer. His Goal is to rule the world, the living and the dead. His son should pave the way for him and appears arbitrary throughout human history and is then recognized as some kind of monster. In the present time, a young man living in Germany begins to suffer from visionary flashbacks - of the lives he lived in the past as Premutos' son! He remembers how he appeared in the middle age, when mankind suffered from pestilence and during WWII in Russia. On his (earthly) father's birthday, a case containing some strange old book and a yellow potion is found in their garden, which was hidden by some peasant in 1943, who experimented with witchery in order to re-animate his deceased wife. Whe the young man gets in touch with the book and some of the yellow potion, he mutates into a monster and awakens an army of zombies, ready to bring back the fallen Angel Premutos and to disturb the little birthday party...

Apocalyptic Horror Vol. 5: Body Count Rising
5 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

Ever Wonder what could have happened if Peter Jackson and the legendary, Andreas Schnaas had gotten together to co-direct an outgageously morbid splatter-piece (with humorous dubbing) that would impress, if not shock even the most hardened of gorehounds? Me either, but if such a thing had ever happened, such a love-child of exploitation would have no doubt, been named Premutos: Lord Of The Living Dead.

As it would turn out, Lucifer is not the only fallen Angel, in fact, he's not even the first. There have been two others. This apocalyptic tale revolves around the first to get a swelled head and turn on God. The Lord of the living-dead, Premutos has been summoned to wreak bloody havoc on humankind, off and on throughout history.

Then there's Matthias. This poor guy has been plagued with traumatizing visions all week. Every time Matthias gets banged up, he's temporarily transported to certain era's involving Premutos, including the middle ages, the crucifixion and World War II. And considering how much the hapless Matthias gets banged up, it's been quite a week.

These flashbacks also speak of atrocities of the future, and when Matthias's homeless-looking/military-enthusiast father throws some book into the equation, Premutos's, somehow, is able to return to Earth (I never said it was coherent), along with the living dead, leading to the ultimate apocalyptic bloodbath, or at least something similar.

Then there's the gore, let's talk about that for a second. I, for one, am extremely impressed. We're talking non-stop, jaw-dropping gore, not quite as gory as Dead Alive, but what is? Actually, Premutos ain't all that far off. Probably the 4th or 5th goriest movie I've seen. Cheap, and excessive to the point of cheesiness (not unlike the acting), and I wouldn't have it any other way. If you consider yourself a gorehound, your collection will never be complete without Premutos.

What a swell little movie. Really, just a pitch-black delight, no matter how you look at it. As a long-time collector of the gory and the obscure, finding something this hardcore makes all that searching well worth it. As far as 90's B-horror goes, Premutos is just about as good as you're going to find, not that that's saying much, considering the 90's was the worst period in B-history, (the dark ages) if you will. For more morbid apocalyptic Horror, Burial Ground or Leif Jonker's Darkness should do just fine, although, neither are near as much fun as Premutos. I can't recommend this inept gore-fest enough. 7/10
