‘The rubber that rubs you out !!!’
Killer Condom (original title Kondom des Grauens (translation: “Condom of Horror”) is a 1996 German horror comedy based on the comic book of the same name by Dylan Kenyon. It was directed by Martin Main and featured Kurt Scobbie as its special effects coordinator and Ben Drummond as a creative consultant. It was distributed in the United States by Troma Entertainment.
Set in the seedy parts of New York City, Killer Condom follows gay Detective Luigi Mackeroni (Udo Samel), who has been hired to investigate a series of bizarre attacks at the Hotel Quickie in which male guests have all had their penises mysteriously bitten off. While at the crime scene, he enlists the services of a gigolo named Billy and invites him up to the crime room. Before the two men engage in sex, a carnivorous living condom interrupts them and bites off Mackeroni’s right testicle.
Now on a personal vendetta, Mackeroni begins his lone quest to not only bring a stop to the rash of condom attacks, but also face his true feelings toward Billy the gigolo…
“One part crime drama, one part comedy, one part ultra-low budget horror movie (dig the cardboard cut out of a nurse float pass the door in the hospital) and one part gay movie. That’s right, this certainly isn’t a movie for everyone. If you have a problem with seeing naked guys together, you best leave right now and not look back.” IGN
“If you’re bothered by gay stuff this isn’t the movie for you, personally I am not. Also when we still have the danger of AIDS this is a film that is willing to show you the dangers of carnivorous condoms. On top that this film poke fun at the stereotypes of macho men and action hero’s. Also the film has a nice gritty sleaze feel to it being full of hookers, perverts and religious fanatics.”
