10 Silly German Movie Title Translations

In English: “The Satan chicks from Titfield.”

Seeing as the month of November has been somewhat stressful so far for us movie people, we’ve been sticking to top lists for a majority of the month and today won’t be an exception. For this Film Friday, we decided to compile a list with films which have ridiculous German translations. From unnecessary racial slurs and vulgarity to just plain senseless strings of words, we’ve seen everything. We tried to exclude porn films for the most part because it’s already widely known that they excel at silly titles, but there are a few soft porn/erotic flicks on the list… not nearly as many as you’d think, however. Enjoy reading this one as much as we did researching it!
