The real-time thriller straight outta Offenbach is not for the faint of heart! Somewhere between splatter and thriller, with black humour and heaps of stage blood, Lukas Rinkers’ genre film was made. His directorial debut is the result of close collaboration between experienced filmmakers and young up-and-coming talent. The central location is the interior of the infamous Dixi toilet. Architect Frank wakes up covered in blood and locked in one of the blue construction site toilets. The countdown has begun. Frank has 90 minutes to free himself from his prison and – as if that weren’t enough – to free the love of his life, Marie, from the clutches of Mayor Horst. Because then the entire site is to be blown up. Resourceful as MacGyver, Frank leaves no stone unturned to escape the shithouse in time. A film as iconic as the Dixie toilet itself!

In an old warehouse in Offenbach, the cult splatter film was made using a remarkable amount of stage blood.
