Horror Anthologies German Angst & A Taste of Phobia Coming to DVD/Blu-ray & VOD
Artsploitation Films will release two eye-popping horror anthologies on June 26th. Fourteen different directors peer into the twisted and often self-violent world of phobias in A Taste of Phobia. Also, on that date will be a special-featured-packed Blu-ray release of German Angst. Love and sex has never been portrayed as so depraved and disturbing as seen by three controversial underground filmmakers, the legendary Jörg Buttgereit (Nekromantik(1987); Andreas Marschall (Tears of Kali (2004); and Michal Kosakowski (Zero Killed (2014). Note: German Angst is a Blu-ray re-issue, as the film has been out on Blu-ray previously. But the original release was a barebones Blu-ray-R while this Artsploitation Films release will be of the highest HD quality and will contain many bonus features.

A horror anthology in which 14 directors delve into the terrifying truths and horrors of phobias.
This unnerving horror anthology is crafted by 14 innovative directors who aren’t afraid to explore mankind’s most bizarre and frightening phobias. Can you imagine being so freaked out by body hair that you would do absolutely anything to remove it? You may have caetophobia. Did you ever look up at the stars and realize how small and insignificant that you really are and start to question your own existence? You might have Astrophobia. How about standing in the voting booth and making a decision on the next political election when an insurmountable amount of panic takes you over. You probably have Politicophobia. Each deranged segment magnifies a specific phobia and proves that people can be afraid of just about anything including dreaming, bacteria, cooking, darkness, blood, medication even young virgins.

Three German tales of love, sex and death in Berlin from Germany’s most shocking directors.
This German horror anthology features three films – all of which focus on the dark, violent, and disturbing nature of love and sex were written and directed by three controversial underground filmmakers: the legendary Jörg Buttgereit (Nekromantik (1987), The Death King (1990); Andreas Marschall (Tears of Kali (2004); and Michal Kosakowski (Zero Killed (2014).
“Final Girl” (Jörg Buttgereit)
The first episode, tells the story of a young girl who lives with her guinea pig in a dirty apartment in Berlin. Seemingly a little lonely except for that bound and gagged man tied to her bed.
“Make a Wish” (Michal Kosakowski)
This gut-wrenching tale involves a young deaf-mute couple who are attacked by a group of skin-head hooligans. However, they are in possession of a mysterious talisman that could help them.
“Alraune” (Andreas Marschall)
The finale follows a man who stumbles upon a secret sex club that promises the ultimate sexual experience by using a drug made from the roots of the legendary Mandragora plant. But the ecstatic experiences have horrific side-effects. Stylishly shot this neo-noir short offers a ton of nudity, kinky sex, and gory violence (and bizarre monsters).
