Storyline

A wolf strives through the woods around an isolated German village. Jakob the young local police officer is onto him, but scents something more in the darkness. What he finds is a man, it seems, wild eyed, of wiry build, in a dress. He carries a katana, a Samurai sword. When the Samurai invites Jakob to follow him on his crusade towards the village, it becomes Jakob's mission to pursue the lunatic to end this wanton destruction. At the end of the night Jakob has experienced too much, is too far from whom he once was. Something hidden has been unleashed to meet the first rays of daylight. Written by Anonymous

not bad if you can dig arty flicks and slow movers
3 September 2015 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

I had difficulties in the beginning with this flick. I didn't get it and it took a while before the action do comes in. It isn't a straight horror it's more of a psychological flick about who one crazy person, the samurai, can get into the mind of a cop.

Slowly the cop will get involved into the actions of the samurai and towards the end you will know what will happen to both of them. I can't say that this is for everybody out there because it do has an homo-erotic feeling over it and it even has male nudity with an erection so some will be offended by that too. The gore attached towards the story isn't shown in a normal way, It has an arty way of showing it. So again on that part some will turn it off but I must say that the first minutes I was thinking to turn it off but somehow I kept watching and clocking in at 75 minutes it worked out fine.

Gore 1/5 Nudity 0,5/5 Effects 2/5 Story 2,5/5 Comedy 0/5
