This week we discuss Mondo Macabro’s stunning blu-ray of Eckhart Schmidt’s DER FAN with Mondo Macabro co-founder Pete Tombs. Also, some Nazisploitation lands on Sean’s doorstep, while some musical comedies and mediocre action movies arrive on Brad’s doorstep.

 

The Flick:

Der-Fan

Der Fan (1982)

Directors: Eckhart Schmidt

Written By: Eckhart Schmidt

Starring: Désirée NosbuschBodo Steiger,Simone Brahmann

 

Teenager Simone appears to be like any other young pop fan. But soon her fixation on the band’s lead singer “R” takes over her life. She walks out of her school, breaks off from her friends and parents and somehow finds herself waiting for her idol as he appears on a TV show.

 

Simone wants nothing more than to love and be loved by “R”, but he uses her with machine-like coldness. When he walks out on her to join his friends, she plots her revenge. She plans the ultimate sacrifice of her god on the altar of her madness, a ceremony as exalted and romantic as it is horribly wonderful.

 

The Fan is a shocking and controversial film which has never been previously released in the US. This is the full and uncut original version. [Mondo Macabro]

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
