Back in the late 80's and early 90's censorship in horror films was becoming quite an issue. In fact many people out there, myself included would often search out the import Japanese laserdiscs so we could see the gore fx that were cut out in our American VHS Releases.
Now it wasn't just American that had these issues but Germany did as well. But luckily they had a horror director there named Andreas Schnass who created Violent Shit. A hybrid shaser gore feast about Karl The Butcher. Soaked in cheap, but effective over the top blood and violence the film became an underground sensation to millions of horror and gore fans out there. It was so poular that he created 3 of them.
The first, Violent Shit, introduces us to escaped killer Karl The Butcher who has weird demon like flashbacks. He goes around killing people with a meat cleaver. He's a bit messed up on account of dismembering his mom with a meat cleaver.
In part 2, Violent Shit II: Mother Hold My Hand we meet an old woman and her son Karl Jr. Yes he's the son of the original killer from part one. His mom has been raising him to carry on his father's legacy so he basically just goes around murdering people, which makes his mom extra happy in lots of wrong ways.
Then we have part 3, Violent Shit III: Infantry of Doom. This one centers on a group of guys who wash up on a island that is ran by Karl Jr and Karl Sr. Turns out he's not dead. They have a zombie like army of followers and kill everyone who comes on there island.
Then let's not forget Violent Shit IV Karl vs Axe, as Karl Jr comes back from the Dead to battle a new serial killer who roams the now desolate wastelands of the future named Axe
It's true, these make little to no sense but they are lathered in blood and gore which is what the target audience was searching for. Now the folks at Synapse have unless this series to us on DVD in a big box of shit.
They even included bonus features and even a bonus movie
