  1. odabadaber's rating of the film The German Chainsaw Massacre

    Eines meiner ersten Kindheitstraumata auf Videoband. Nachts aufgenommen waren die Bilder für meinen sensationsgierigen Geist viel zu schmutzig, die 'Troma'-Splattermomente so Dogma95 real und billig zugleich. Ein Bild, dass einem übel wird und laienhafte Darstelller, dass die magische Hochglanzkulisse fehlt, die einem die Sicherheit gibt, dass das alles nur ein Film ist. Ich will ihn wieder sehen - aber nicht heute..

  2. Victor Gonzalez's rating of the film The German Chainsaw Massacre

    Interesting from a political point of view. Poor in cinematography.

  3. Liliya Ivanova's rating of the film The German Chainsaw Massacre

    Really funny and with real trash horror effects!

  4. Terry_Moby's rating of the film The German Chainsaw Massacre

    Hilarious. Never a dull moment and I remember the year 1990 exactly like this. Well, almost.

  5. OrfgenT's rating of the film The German Chainsaw Massacre

    Horror-Trash mit einigen durchaus interessanten, experimentellen Bildern. Sonst aber ein Herumreiten auf immer gleichen und zu einfachen Allegorien und Metaphern. Dieser Film ist, wenn auch bewusst gewollt, geschmacklos. / Horror-Trash with some interesting, experimental pictures. Otherwise riding on always resemble and to easy allegories and metaphors. This film is, even if consciously artificial, tastelessly.

  6. Nick Schwab's rating of the film The German Chainsaw Massacre

    Shows newly reformed Germany's debate on accepting Westernized values at this difficult time. The grindhouse aesthetic is proof that when filmmakers work on the unfettered principle of so-called 'bad-taste' it's equivocal to freedom. Its extremely unfocused, childish nature mars it, though. The half-baked metaphor and outrageous nature is there, however. Not enjoyable, but historical and politically meditative.

  7. Jesse Furgurson's rating of the film The German Chainsaw Massacre

    A not unpleasurably unpleasant hour of politicized cartoon carnage, like early Peter Jackson by way of Brecht.

  8. Ascribes Madame Tiaras's rating of the film The German Chainsaw Massacre

    More gorey to laugh than gorey to shock; dummy gets hit by a car, a woman with a knife up her butt sits down, man ironically peels off his gore make up. Simultaneous to the "horror & humor" the film attempts to create an analogy for the reunification of Germany and fall of the Berlin Wall by trying to take dismembered parts of the individual and put them back together in wurst. Slightly boring, but it made a point.

  9. Peter Belly's rating of the film The German Chainsaw Massacre

    A sincere sensation. THANKYOUTHANKYOU

  10. Demetria Moondance's rating of the film The German Chainsaw Massacre

    The scene where Clara kills her "husband" in the beginning reminded me of the last episode of True Detective, the "love nest" of the killer "Spagetti Monster". The two stars are for the production designer and whoever found the outdoor locations and abandoned "wasteland" set. Otherwise this film just plain sucked.

  11. Nicholas Kohut's rating of the film The German Chainsaw Massacre

    A surprising satirical endeavor, The German Chainsaw Massacre trivializes American cinema while simultaneously meditating on the reunification of Germany. With terrifying juxtapositions of Western and Eastern absurdities, the film focuses on the buffer zone between true Democracy and shrouded Communism, while gently reminiscing of naive Americans exploring the dark and dangerous corners of the deep South.

  12. Dennis Morgan's rating of the film The German Chainsaw Massacre

    I understand the political point that was being made but it was so badly done that I came away thinking that I was watching a film made by 13 years old boys who love horror but only had a budget of £100. Crass,vulgar, and extremely boring.

  13. Noah Lethbridge's rating of the film The German Chainsaw Massacre

    Shocking and fun and amazing. "Everything in life has an end except the sausage which has two!"

  14. Weston Campbell's rating of the film The German Chainsaw Massacre

    The blithe violence of a Troma film presented as anxious propaganda- very good.

  15. El Biffo's rating of the film The German Chainsaw Massacre

    MUBI would have us believe that this disgusting horror film is "meaningful". So far, all of this dude's films are bad. The one he made when he was seven wasn't as bad as the ones he made when he grew up. But that one wasn't good either. This one is disgusting AND stupid. Serious cinema lovers, steer clear! This film is like a particularly foul-smelling bowel movement.

  16. Stefan Drees's rating of the film The German Chainsaw Massacre

    A bitchy mingle-mangle of Tobe Hooper's "Chainsaw Masacre", some lessons on younger German history and very black humour...

  17. GreatJobTopMarks's rating of the film The German Chainsaw Massacre

    As wonderful and compelling as you'd expect from Christoph Schlingensief.

  18. Sy's rating of the film The German Chainsaw Massacre

    Thank god Germany was reunified.
