“Africa: Land of the infinite sun, of curly hair and the smell of diesel oil. German soldiers on a UN mission. For General Werner Brenner (Udo Kier), a dream has come true: a new crematorium, a multicultural children’s playground and, above all, the Führer’s old V2-Rocket! Here, where people are still “crude and simple”, every German can display his abilities! But after a couple of days, Brenner’s unbreakable optimism starts to crumble... Somewhere between John Waters, Herschell Gordon Lewis, and the Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker films and eerily foreshadowing the events of Germany’s involvement in the Kosovo war just 4 years later, albeit acted out in Africa, UNITED TRASH is perhaps the only politically explosive gross-out film.” (Frieder Schlaich)
“A grotesquely erotic, blasphemous, ultraviolent, incestuous, scatological, certifiable splatter comedy about a Messiah in Africa with a very messy cranial orifice. Mind-bending drugs would seem to be required to make sense of this repugnant jumble, and probably only the most adventurous of fest programmers will find an opening for THE SLIT [the international title of UNITED TRASH].” (David Rooney, Variety 1995)
