Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
This anthology film is comprised of 12 stories submitted by the Austrian public to director Michael Glawogger in response to an advertisement. These stories are woven in and out of one another. The imagery arising from the stories can be quite striking, such as one in which a cannibal's recipe for Stroganoff is given while several men hang from meathooks. Another segment pays homage to low-grade horror films with a love story involving two girls and a vampire. An English-language segment concerns a bankrupt healer. One highly visual story concerns an epileptic who has had an operation separating the two halves of his brain. Each side of his body tells an increasingly demented tale.
