“Unlike any other horror film you’ll see this year, Der Samurai is a surreal mix of dark comedy and eerie creep-out that recalls David Lynch. Set in a small village, a bloody game of cat-and-mouse ensues between a repressed young police officer and a cross-dressing villain with a large sword and a predilection for beheadings. Completely bizarre yet wildly entertaining, it is a horror must-see.”
