Director Jörg Buttgereit is teaming up with Andreas Marschall and Michal Kosakowski for the three-part independent Horror-anthology GERMAN ANGST. This will be something of a return for Buttgereit, who’s spent much time focusing on theater and radio plays in recent years.

In a conversation with Kier-La Janisse in FANGORIA #323, the filmmaker who battled authorities with notorious works like NEKROMANTIK, alluded to the possibility of GERMAN ANGST, explaining “I just wrote a script for a short film that might be part of an anthology feature from German horror filmmakers. One of the others is Andreas Marschall, who did a giallo called MASKS and painted the NEKROMANTIK poster in 1987. He told me he was traveling with his film all over the world, and at nearly every Q&A, people asked him, ‘What is Jörg Buttgereit doing?’ So he came to me and said, ‘I want to do a compilation film and you have to be part of it because everybody’s asking me.’ That might be something that happens next year, because this year I’m busy with work on KANNIBALE UND LIEBE, my Ed Gein stage play, and I’m also doing a radio play on Kim Jong-il.”

Buttgereit curates filmprogram in Vienna

“They were looking for something different, but something different saw them first.”- At the invitation of the Viennale and armed with this tagline, the well-known German filmmaker, critic and aficionado Jörg Buttgereit has put together a program of about a dozen films, each of them playing with fire in their own way: a fire that suddenly flares up in flames of eeriness, horror and fear.

The “Something Different” program is based on a small curatorial experiment. The starting point for this film presentation was an advertising slogan for the classic horror movie THE HILLS HAVE EYES, whose trailer starts the words, “They were looking for something different, but something different saw them first.” A sensational slogan as well as a wonderful definition of the elementary ambivalence between cinema and audience.

Meet Jörg in Indianapolis

Jörg Buttgereit will be a guest at the "Days of The Dead" from 6-8 of July 2012 at the Wyndham Indianapolis West, located in Indianapolis, IN.

Days of the Dead's primary goal is to bring back the concept of the genre convention being a welcoming communal gathering of like minded friends and fans and not just another "pay-and-go" autograph show that has become an all too common experience in the convention scene.

Join LAURENCE HARVEY (Human Centipede 2) and JORG BUTTGEREIT (Nekromantik 1 and 2, Der Todesking) for a special dual panel with the MONSTERS OF SHOCK. Both gentlemen will be not only taking questions from the audience but also engaging each other, in a casual, intimate conversation sure to cover everything from cult cinema to necrophilia, happening Saturday, July 7th only at DAYS OF THE DEAD: Indianapolis.

NEKRO 2 - 20th Anniversary Filmconcert

On January 9 of 2011 Jörg Buttgereit will celebrate the 20th anniversary of NEKROMANTIK 2 at the famous stageplay venue Volksbühne in Berlin. Beautiful mainactress Monika M. and band will play a new interpretation of the original film score live on stage. Cast & crew of NEKRO 2 will be present...
