“"What do you think of in the dark, Dr Wehner? I sit there, in the blackness, and dream of wounds and carnage..."”

Serum Productions

SUMMARY

1930. The Düsseldorf Ripper, Peter Kurten, awaits his trial. His new lawyer, Justus Wehner, wants to prove him insane, but Kurten has other ideas. He wants to entrap Wehner, he wants to suffocate him in fear and destruction.

The two grow uncomfortably close as Wehner is drawn into his client's imagination: he latches on to Kurten's charm, Kurten's brutality and even Kurten's wife. The two become merged in the same violent fantasy of sex and murder.

An immersive and provocative mix of farce and amorality.
