Capital Celluloid 2012 - Day 147: Sat May 26

The German Chainsaw Massacre (Schlingensief, 1990): Tate Modern, 6pm

Time Out review:
'A bloody and demented blend of Brechtian political satire and Texas Chain Saw Massacre-style horror, this shrieking gore-fest is set during the first hours after German reunification. Fleeing from the East, hapless victims fall prey to a crazed family of human butchers, who introduce them to the pleasures of the Free Market by noisily hacking, bludgeoning and chainsawing them to death. Abrasive, relentless, cruelly funny and enjoyably deranged.'

Here is an extract on YouTube (no subtitles but you get the idea)
