As serial killer Lothar Schramm lies dying in his own blood, horrific memories of his miserable life of paranoia, self-harm and rejection flash before his eyes. A tragic look into the mind of a Borderline Personality Disorder psychopath.

While traveling to Canada to attend a film festival in Toronto, director and co-writer Fred Vogel was arrested, pending charges of transporting obscene materials into Canada, when copies of August Underground and its sequel were found by customs officials among the merchandise he had intended to bring to the convention. The charges were eventually dropped, after Vogel had spent roughly ten hours in customs prison. See more »
[while looking at statues of Biblical figures]
You know what I don't understand? I don't understand, you know, like, in, y'know, in the Bible, and y'know, the stories that you hear, y'know, they're always upset, and weeping, and crying and stuff like that. These people just have a stoned look on their face. Get it?
Man behind the Camera:
That was bad.

I was teasing my x-girlfriend about a movie which was so horrible that I hadn't even dared watch it myself, so naturally she wanted to see it. Now she's not some heavy metal chick that's used to seeing hardcore stuff, but a more preppy babe type, the kind who likes the color pink and light blue.
But oh my, what a boring viewing experience. Halfway through she wanted me to turn it off, not because she was shocked, but because it was difficult staying awake to this stuff. The main issues are that there's simply nothing interesting happening at all, and that there's left no room for empathy towards the victims. Just a lot of yelling, screaming and laughing, going on and on, which is incredibly annoying, just like stepping in a dog's leftovers is annoying, but never really frightening.
Slightly amusing was the part where a female victim was forced to eat her brother's genitals, but at that time we were so detached from the movie, that even that failed to shock.
Had someone given this to me on a black, unmarked, slightly worn VHS tape, telling me I could not let anyone know where I'd gotten it from, it would surely had much bigger impact. Downloading it as a film that everyone has said was the worst, most shocking thing ever created however gives you a few expectations which were never really satisfied.
