* ButtMonkey: Throughout the movie, Matthias has a rather unlucky streak. He has dental fillings without anesthesia, runs into a car on his bike when he sees his crush, has to wear a pink pair of shorts to his football game, where he gets kicked in the balls so hard he needs stitches. After ''that,'' he's in extreme pain for a good chunk of the movie, spilling yellow liquid on his lap, and finally [[spoiler:he gets the skin on his face pulled back by wires]].

But with all that said, it's a comedy.

''Premutos: Der Gefallene Engel'' is a 1997 BlackComedy/horror movie directed by Olaf Ittenbach.

The titular Premutos is the first fallen angel, prior even to Lucifer. Throughout history, wars have been fought in his name, while his son is reborn many times through the ages to prepare the way for his return. One day, on his birthday, a father finds the last surviving copy of Premutos' tome buried in his backyard. Blasphemy, {{gorn}}, and {{hilarity ensue|s}}.

!!Tropes featured in this movie:

* AbusiveParents: Walter is a terribly neglectful father who's trying to raise Matthias to become a soldier by being as hard on him as possible.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: The appropriately-named Rudolf is hated by the rest of his village, and perhaps rightfully so [[spoiler:when it turns out he's been killing people with the intent of bringing them back, though he does it with the intent of resurrecting his wife. Unfortunately, they all come back as mindless zombies]].
* AntiClimax: Both times he's featured, Premutos is made out to be a serious threat. Then he gets his ass handed to him with ease.
* TheAntichrist: The son of Premutos is something like this. His goal is to pave the way for his father, and he's reincarnated every time he dies until he fulfills his duty.
* ArtisticLicenseReligion: According to most interpretations, Jesus was a human incarnation of God, procreated by the Holy Spirit. Here though, he's just the human son of God, and he's brought back not as by ascending to Heaven, but by a follower of Premutos.
* BlackComedy: Oh, ''lots.''
-->'''Villager:''' (looks at photo of a crosseyed man) That's my dad! (cut to a rotting, crosseyed corpse)
* BodyHorror: Whenever the son of Premutos goes OneWingedAngel, the skin above his mouth is pushed up to fit his new teeth and any missing limbs regenerate themselves.
* DemonLordsAndArchdevils: Premutos is the first fallen angel and the lord of darkness.
* DroppedABridgeOnHer: [[spoiler:A random and completely plot-irrelevant woman is introduced and she manages to tear her way through a horde of zombies with just a metal rod and a scythe. She's unceremoniously killed off by Premutos' son shortly after]].
* EndearinglyDorky: Matthias seems like a nice enough fellow, though he's awkward and is a total ButtMonkey.
* {{Gorn}}: Duh. It's Olaf Ittenbach. What's especially notable is the total body count of ''139.''
* GroinAttack: An overly long subplot comes from Matthias being kicked in the balls in a soccer game and requiring stitches and being in pain for much of the movie until the middle of the movie.
* {{Jerkass}}: Edith. She constantly berates Hugo to his face in front of their friends, flirts with Christian, and shows she has a bit of a racist streak when he ignores her.
* {{Necromancer}}: It's Premutos' [[PlanetOfHats hat]], practically. Notably his followers don't initially ''intend'' to make zombies and just want to resurrect their dead.
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: They look and act like your run of the mill Romero zombies, but they're brought back through supernatural means and go down just like anyone else and don't appear to have an infectious bite.
* OverlyLongGag: Once the villagers confront Rudolf, the mayor is killed and they continue yelling at him for ''that'' and not for all the corpses in his shed.
* RevenantZombie: Jesus was apparently one of the only people successfully reanimated by Premutos' magic who didn't become a full blown FleshEatingZombie.
* SuddenDownerEnding: [[spoiler:Hugo and Tanja have defeated the army of zombies and blown up Premutos, and they embrace in the middle of the street ... only for a car to come out of nowhere and accidentally run over them offscreen]].
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Daughter is wearing a latex outfit? Oh, no big deal at all.
* VomitIndiscretionShot: Christian projectile vomits all over Edith's dress when she tries to wake him up.
* WouldHitAGirl: Hugo punches Edith in the face after being fed up with her constant berating of him.
* YourHeadAsplode: A random bum finds one of those glasses of yellow liquid and drinks it, and well, the results are what you'd expect.
