Where can this film be found


Is there anyone who has seen this film.

All I have ever seen is two still images one in colour the other in black and white. Please can anyone tell me if this film is available anywhere in the world. I'm guessing very few people have ever seen it, but the two images I have in my collection remain in the mind once they have been seen. Is this the most bizarre imagery ever committed to celluloid.

I found it on the internets. It's recorded from German TV, however, and there aren't any English subs. Does that matter to you?

I don't know yet.

1981 German art-fantasy-sleaze flick, featuring a cast with many REAL freaks of nature, such as midgets, armless women, etc., as well as some that look fake, like a deformed woman with two heads, a bearded lady, etc. Full of bizarre avant-garde scenes of violence and madness, including leathermen, heads ripped off and put in cages, crazy singing numbers, transvestites, etc. Just TRY to figure THIS one out. Paul Naschy is a detective of sorts, exploring the transsexual world of niteclubs and weird clients, trying to find out what makes these people tick, etc. There's some fights, nudity, sleazy drag-queen shows, etc.

No english subs and the quality isn't very good as it was recorded off TV when it was ran on Germany television.

I saw this film today at the Walter Reade in NYC as part of an international science fiction series. I thought the film was terrible.
