(List) 20 Must-See German Horror Movies

10. Killer Condom (1996)


Adapted from Ralf König’s 1987 comic book Kondom Des Grauens, Killer Condom (aka Kondom des Grauens) follows gay New York City Detective Luigi Mackeroni (Udo Samel), who has been hired to investigate a series of bizarre attacks at a local hotel in which male guests have all had their penises mysteriously bitten off.

While at the crime scene, he enlists the services of a gigolo named Billy (Marc Richter) and invites him up to the crime room. Before the two men engage in sex, a carnivorous living condom interrupts them and bites off Mackeroni’s right testicle. Now on a personal vendetta, Mackeroni begins his lone quest to not only bring a stop to the rash of condom attacks, but also face his true feelings toward Billy the gigolo.

Yeah, so this movie is pretty insane. However, Killer Condom is one of those rare gems of trash cinema that manages to deliver its exploitative schlock with adept filmmaking and a cohesive and pointed aesthetic. It traverses the dark alleyways lined with the soot of urban decay in a search for a quick midnight fix, and through its camp and satire it delivers the goods that trash cinema junkies desperately crave.
