This politically-incorrect saga meshes sex, violence and humor in its tale of a husband-and-wife detective team sent to a German refugee camp to find a Polish family and a social worker. During the search, the sleuths are kidnapped by neo-Nazis, and it's soon learned that their interests are as strange as the people around them. Udo Kier never been better playing a gun toting Priest, who loves putting his gun in his mouth and others. Gore and violence are just over the top in this German cult classic.
SECOND REVIEW (IMDb):
Schlingensief, love him or hate him. I love him. He's something like the skin cancer on a body named society. So are his films.
Terror 2000 is this kind of film where you haven't the chance to relax, because you are confronted the whole time with loudness, chaos, violence, sex, dirty language and Nazis! But in such a grotesque, humoristic way that you can't do something other than look and laugh! See Udo Kier as maniac preacher, see Schlingensief himself as a gay Nazi, see all the other strange characters and be inspired!
Schlingensiefs real intentions what he wants to tell us by this film I can't interpretate, because it's always difficult to understand him. I think like in most cases of his work it's only a story about the weirdness of our society. That's it.
(Christoph, if you read this, please take me for your next film project, I would be for example a fantastic Hitler parody!)
It's clearly 9 points, because this film is highly entertaining, and that's what a film has to do in my opinion!
Christoph Schlingensief died of Lung Cancer Aug 2010 aged 50.
