Three Violent Shits in one convenient package.

"Prepare for the worst!"

Violent Shit is an ultra low-budget Slasher Movie directed by Andreas Schnaas in 1987, and released on video two years later. It was immediately banned in West Germany due to its graphic violence.

It follows the story of a young man named Karl "The Butcher Shitter" Berger who goes on a heinous killing spree. It was followed by three sequels featuring Karl's son, Karl Jr., entitled Mother Hold My Hand, Infantry of Doom and Karl the Butcher vs. Axe.


This series contains examples of the following tropes:

  • The '70s: When the events of the first film take place.
  • Angrish: "Fucking dammit shit! Shit! What am I doing here, anyway? Shit! This bullshitting job is fucking me to shits!"
  • Dolled-Up Installment: Nikos the Impaler, another Andrea Schnass project, is sometimes known as Violent Shit 4.
  • Gratuitous English: The title. For the record, the words "Violent Shit" would translate into German as "Gewalttätige Scheiße".

  • Groin Attack: A series trademark.
  • Guns Akimbo: Karl Jr. shooting up a theater in Mother Hold My Hand.
  • Hooks and Crooks: A fishing hook, to the balls, in Mother Hold My Hand. Ugh. And tons of mutilations via hooked chains in Infantry of Doom.
  • Hunting the Most Dangerous Game: Mother Hold My Hand:
    "My boy, the time has come for you to hunt humans instead of animals."
  • Mr. Seahorse: Karl Sr. gets pregnant... somehow.
  • Mooks: The Karls' followers in Infantry of Doom.
  • Sequel Escalation: After two films with a killer slicing up random people, the third film introduces an army of Malevolent Masked Men, zombies created by a Mad Scientist and ninjas.
  • Shovel Strike: A victim is partially decapitated with a shovel in Mother Hold My Hand.
  • Spiteful Spit: Leads to character getting run through with spears in Infantry of Doom.
  • Stock Wushu Weapons: In Infantry of Doom of all places, where the group of inexplicable ninja use martial arts and a set of traditional weapons such as dao, butterfly knives and hook swords.
  • Traumatic C-Section: A pregnant Karl Sr. lets his son out by ripping himself open.
  • Trilogy Creep: End credits for the third film tells that it's the end of the trilogy. Cue the fourth film in 2010.
  • You Don't Look Like You: Karl the Butcher Sr was a fairly normal looking person with normal attire (Though granted, his face started to decay as the film progressed), but in the third film, his appearance is so radically different (An undead looking guy clad in armor and a cape) that you have to read the films synopsis to know that its him.
