The German horror film Der Samurai is set to premiere at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, and today we’ve got some head-rolling, blood-flying goodies for ya while we wait.
Check out the trailer for the film along with poster art and a gallery of bloody stills!
Written and directed by Till Kleinert, Der Samurai stars Michael Schumacher, Uwe Preuss, Pit Bukowski, and Ulrike Bliefert.
A samurai-wielding figure wearing a white dress lurks menacingly in the forest, waiting to descend upon an unsuspecting village in the muddy backwaters of rural East Germany. As heads roll with each stroke of his sword, dutiful, straight-laced cop Jakob becomes increasingly powerless to resist the draw of the Samurai’s feral otherness. The two enter into a bizarre folie à deux as Jakob is forced to confront his own carnal impulses that he has long sought to repress.
