Trivia

The film shown at the cinema is The Relic (1997), also distributed in Germany by TMG. The crowd clearly features some boys aged 12-14. In theory this would be a punishable violation of the youth protection laws since that film has an age restriction of 16. See more »

Goofs

The police officers uniforms don't feature any real coat of arms. In reality the uniforms show the coat of arms of the state the officers are from (Bavaria in this case). See more »

decent German slasher movie
9 June 2005 | by dj-manSee all my reviews

Just watched this movie a couple of hours back & i gotta say Valerie Niehaus who plays Jeanette has so much charisma that she keeps us intrigued & makes this movie into a decent German slasher. Also, i appreciated the gore but did not find the German humor to be funny. But what i really appreciated was the a lot of animals were killed in this movie - 3 to be exact! It leaves no prisoners untouched.....NO MERCY film making is what director Michael Karen intended for this film. Some real annoying characters such as Elle Some wasted characters such as Frau Luste and some underutilized characters such as Liesse made it a bit frustrating but as long as Valerie was on screen, it was cool
