Plot

A young boy named Karl Berger (a surname given in the sequel) murders his abusive mother with a meat cleaver, after she beats him for returning home late. Twenty years later, in the mid-1970s, the imprisoned Karl is being transported to an unspecified location by the police, but manages to kill his captors and escape into the wilderness, somehow acquiring a cleaver in the process. Over the course of several days, Karl commits a series of murders across the countryside, mutilating and occasionally cannibalizing his victims. After one double homicide, Karl faints and has a flashback to the day he murdered his mother, revealing he had been coerced into killing her by a demon (which a line of dialogue indicates may be his father) he had encountered in the cellar after being locked in it.

At one point, Karl also encounters an apparition of Jesus crucified in the forest, which he hacks open, and crawls inside. After this encounter, Karl commits an additional dual murder outside a church, then collapses in a field, where his skin (which had been inexplicably decaying throughout the film) rots off, and he dies ripping himself open, revealing a baby covered in blood.

  • Reception

    Horror News wrote, "The plot of Violent Shit 1 is so thin as to be virtually expendable (not to mention narrative continuity) and the quality of image and sound are beyond amateurish. The shaky camera, for instance, is far from the mockumentary experiments of later horror, and often appears out of focus. This is of little importance, since the film makes little claim to artistry and revolves almost exclusively around a series of murder set pieces. Although these are often ineptly orchestrated, the film deserves some credit for its fixation and capacity to go that little bit too far that gore-hounds will appreciate". The website concluded its review with, "If you want your horror films to have some substance, than you might want to look elsewhere, but otherwise you will be well-served". In a write-up of the "truly awful" film and its first sequel, Badass Digest's Evan Saathoff compared them to pornography, and said, "You watch it and have no fucking idea what is going on" and "It never really makes much sense, but we're just here for the killing anyway, so who cares".

    Remake

    A name-only remake entitled Violent Shit: The Movie, was released in 2015. A German and Italian co-production, it was written and directed by Luigi Pastore, and co-written by Lucio Massa and Emanuele Barbera. The original's director, Andreas Schnaas, was not involved in any way.
