SCREAMBOX has acquired North American rights to Lukas Rinker‘s black comedy Holy Shit! and it’s headed to the Bloody Disgusting-powered streaming service on March 21.
Living up to its title, the single-location German splatterfest explores the horrors of being trapped inside a portable toilet. Speaking of which, check out a brand new clip down below!
Scriptwriter and director Lukas Rinker has created an ultimate worst-case scenario that feels relatable yet unimaginable at the same time when Architect Frank awakens bloodily trapped inside a portable toilet standing on a construction site…
“Architect Frank (Thomas Niehaus) regains consciousness in a locked portable toilet on a construction site where a detonation is being prepared. As he desperately tries to find ways of escaping this prison before potentially being blown to smithereens, he realizes who has put him into this predicament: none other than the corrupt and lecherous mayor Horst (Gedeon Burkhard) who also has designs on Frank‘s pregnant girlfriend Marie (Olga von Luckwald). Now Frank has to do everything in his power to get out alive, save his Marie and expose Horst‘s delusional crimes.”
Holy Shit! won the Audience Award at its world premiere at last year’s Hard:Line Film Festival and was shown at several prestigious genre festivals such as Night Visions Film Festival in Helsinki, FrightFest London, Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival. At the Fantaspoa 2022 the black comedy received an Honorable Mention for the Best Blood (and shit) Bath.
Holy Shit! is a German production by Neopol Film in co-production with Studio Hamburg Enterprises. The production was supported and funded by the HessenFilm und Medien GmbH.
