The surreal German horror Der Samurai premiered last year at the Tribeca Film Festival and was generally agreed to be “bizarre”, but also good.

Now, on June 9th, it’s finally getting released in the US on DVD and Blu-ray by Artsploitation. Below are the synopsis and trailer.

A samurai-wielding figure wearing a white dress lurks menacingly in the forest, waiting to descend upon an unsuspecting village in the muddy backwaters of rural East Germany. As heads roll with each stroke of his sword. Dutiful, straight-laced cop Jakob becomes increasingly powerless to resist the draw of the Samurai’s feral otherness. The two enter into a bizarre folie à deux as Jakob is forced to confront his own carnal impulses that he has long sought to repress.
