The definitive book on the controversial German film director whose films Nekromantik, Nekromantik 2, Der Todesking and Schramm have earned him a reputation as one of the most original, innovative and dangerous of all modern filmmakers — banned the world over.

Traversing both horror and art-house film genres, Buttgereit’s work deals explicitly with sex and death, and features graphic images of necrophilia, murder and suicide. Detailed analysis of all the films, plus promotional features, TV shows, and extensive personal interviews with Buttgereit and his principal actors, go to create this compelling and illuminating study.

SEX MURDER ART is possibly the ultimate testament to the obsession, paranoia and politics of underground filmmaking.

  • Critique of all of Buttgereit's films
  • Censorship problems
  • Behind the scenes of Schramm
  • How Buttgereit incurred the wrath of Warner Bros
  • Working with artist H.R Giger on Killer Condom
  • Troubling fan letters

"Excellent… A superb piece of reportage about a genuinely interesting filmmaker"

"Jörg Buttgereit is the censor’s worst nightmare. You need to read SEX MURDER ART to see what all the fuss is about"

"An engaging, compelling read… SEX MURDER ART may stand as Buttgereit’s best defence at the endless charges that he peddles pornography and revels in violence"
