Der Goldene Nazivampir von Absam 2 – Das Geheimnis von Schloß Kottlitz

Well, well, the Germans tried to be funny again but unfortunately they failed miserably. The story is ok even though nothing special but as I always say: “when it comes to movies you do not have to reinvent the wheel, it suffices when a horror flick is creepy, a comedy is funny and B-movie is trashy”. But there is the rub, Der Goldene Nazivampir von Absam 2 is neither fish nor fowl. The movie simply has nothing to offer and besides that: the whole Nazi B-Movie genre died a few years ago.

Talking about the cast, I did not expect anyone being familiar with the art of acting but in the end it was the most famous actor, Oliver Kalkofe who was the worst. Even though Kalkofe played a very small part, he nearly made me jump right into his face and wring his neck. I laughed more during Titanic than to any joke this dude has ever told in his life. Ok, I have to admit that I can’t stand “German humour” because it, most of the time, is superficial, stupid and mediocre. Fanatic Obergruppenführer and General of the Waffen SS Otto von Grimm, Knorkator‘s credit song and the film locations are three positive alternations to the rather average B-Movie.

Der Goldene Nazivampir von Absam 2 is a 45 minute long German trash comedy (without being funny) which was filmed in only 15 days. The movie is supposed to be a homage to the Exploitation movie genre and was Lasse Nolte’s graduate thesis film (respect for that!!!). According to director Nolte humans lost their ludic drive through conformism, the mainstream and the eternal search after a veracity, existential orientation, after a congenial visualization of the Zeitgeist. In his eyes Der Goldene Nazivampir von Absam 2 is the inevitable, new iconoclasm of the postmodernism. Well, my dear friend this all sounds really nice and there for sure are some exploitation elements and one can see that he knows his stuff but as I said before it doesn’t really work in the end.
