Tenderness of the Wolves
Uli Lommel’s homoerotic horror film is based on the true story of serial killer Fritz Haarman, a German cannibal who raped, murdered and ate his young male victims. At the time the film was conceived, Lommel (THE BOOGEYMAN) was best known for acting in films by the famous German director Rainer Werner Fassbinder. But Fassbinder agreed to produce and act alongside the other talented members of his troupe, including the film’s screenwriter and star, Kurt Raab, whose vivid realization of Haarman is a clear homage to German horror cinema’s most iconic monster: Nosferatu. Contains sexual scenes, violence and gore.
