Obsessed by death, director Joerg Buttgereit goes beyond the simplistic body excesses of his peers to again find the true horror. And one of the most unusual and compelling films to emerge from the European Underground, The Death King is the chronicle of seven suicides over seven days, each prompted by a mysteriously powerful chain letter. Not for the squeamish, this film avoids the clichés and goes straight for the throat with unflinching scenes of horror.
