“Der Struwwelpeter” (“Shockheaded Peter”), German Film, 1955, Subtitles by Art of Bleeding

More holiday cheer, this time from our friends over at The Art of Bleeding, who have just posted excerpts from the rarely seen 1955 German film “Der Struwwelpeter” (“Shockheaded Peter”) embellished with their own, as they put it, "somewhat creative subtitles." The film is based on Heinrich Hoffmann's infamous, circa 1845 Gorey- and Oompa Loompa-inspiring cautionary children's book in which ill-behaved kinder receive graphic comeuppances for a variety of misbehaviors.
