Fritz Haarmann, aka the Butcher of Hanover and the Vampire of Hanover, was a German serial killer responsible for the murders of two dozen boys and young men during the so-called 'years of crisis' between the wars. His case would partly inspire Fritz Lang's M, and its central character portrayed by Peter Lorre, as well as this forgotten gem from 1973. Tenderness of the Wolves treats the viewer to a few weeks in the company of a killer. Baby-faced and shaven-headed, in a manner that recalls both M and F.W. Murnau's Nosferatu, Haarmann is a fascinating, repulsive figure. Using his status as a police informant to procure his victims, he dismembers their bodies after death and sells the flesh to restaurants, dumping the remainder out of sight. This isn't an easy film to watch, but it certainly gets under the skin... Produced by Rainer Werner Fassbinder (who also supplies a shifty cameo), Tenderness of the Wolves provided two of his regular actors with a means of expanding their careers. Ulli Lommel - later responsible for the infamous video nasty The Boogeyman - made his directorial debut, while Kurt Raab wrote the screenplay as well as delivering an astonishing performance as Haarmann.

Press Quotes

Demands that Ulle Lommel be regarded one of the great artists of horror cinema

     —Weird Wild Realm

Beautifully and enthusiastically performed

     —The New York Times

Lommel's film remains as disturbing a look at a serial killer as you're likely to see

     —Film4

Arrow Video's top-shelf Blu-ray presentation of this haunting, if tasteless, curio is among the year's most complete home-video packages for a standalone film.

     —Slant

Arrow's disc looks and sounds great, and they've stacked the deck with some new extras that are just as interesting as the feature itself.

     —Dread Central
