Long-running horror journalism site Arrow in the Head has teamed up with German filmmakers Nicolas Huck and Robin Huck to launch its first narrative webseries on its new YouTube Channel, JoBlo Horror Videos.
Titled "Conrad the Bavarian," the series is an original episodic "overkill" grindhouse-style affair shot in professional high-gloss while never losing that grainy, drive-in aesthetic. It's totally bonkers and I highly recommend it to fans of splattery films like Hobo with a Shotgun and Turbo Kid.
The series follows "Madman Heinrich (Robin Huck), the leader of the terror group “Heil Five” is studying the occult to revive his grandfather Adolph Hitler using the “Book of the Dead” and his grandpapa’s mustache. Alas, the first of the 5 required artifacts for said ritual are hidden below the property of pint abusing Conrad aka “The Bavarian” (Nicolas Huck) in the small town of Sasbach. And this bearded son-of-a-gun knows how to handle the scumbags of the world all too well – the old fashioned way: lock, slash and load! Revenge is a dish best served with BEER!"
"Think Machete meets Inglorious Basterds on Planet Terror developed by nerds for nerds," says the Huck brothers.
The series is produced by Arrow in the Head founder John Fallon and executive produced by JoBlo.com founder Berge Garabedian.
"Conrad the Bavarian" is now streaming exclusively on the JoBlo Horror Videos YouTube channel. There are currently 3 episodes up on the channel, with 8 episodes set to premiere in total.
