Inspector Black (Mark Berger), a rather hopeless investigator, is investigating a rather hopeless killing spree, in which the killer first drugs his victims, then cuts them apart, and finally leaves them with a picture of Elvis dressed up as a Saint - but other than that, the killer leaves no clues at all.

In a seemingly unrelated story, heroin-addicted musician Max (Jakob Rudelstorfer) and his manager Tom (Frens Mike) are on their way to their recording studio when their car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. After hours and hours of walking, they reach a lonely farmhouse, and its owner Frankie Payne (Francis Lane)  is nice enough to offer them coffee and to call the local mechanic ... but unfortunately, the coffee was drugged, and when Tom and Max wake up again they are all tied up and Payne turns out to be an Elvis impersonator (and a bad one at that) gone bonkers who believes when he kills enough people and cuts them up, he can resurrect Elvis himself - and before you know it, he has killed and cut up Max.

Tom tries to keep a cool head and tries to calm Payne down, but to no avail - Payne is already picking up his axe to land the fatal blow when ... he's shot in the back. Inspector Black is not quite as hopeless as he has always seemed, and he has in fact tracked the killer down after all - but unfortunately he hasn't checked if Payne is really dead, and while Black is beginning untying Tom, Payne hits him over the head from behind and ... I'll leave the rest to your imagination.

Two weeks later: Max' girlfriend Dana has since started to go looking for him and has finally tracked him down to Payne's farmhouse. Payne once again is all hospitability and invites her in - ouch !

 

A film featuring a killer who is also an Elvis impersonator and is in fact played by an Elvis-impersonator ... a recipe for desaster actually - and I leave it open if desaster signifies a good thing or a bad thing. And actually I can't really decide if Flesh for the King is a good or a bad film. On one hand it's well crafted, on the other hand, most of the actors (except for Francis Lane) suck, on one hand its story sucks, on the other hand it doesn't take itself seriously at all, on one hand it's silly trash, on the other hand, well, yeah, it's silly trash.

Being fairI I have to admit this film is pretty amusing - just too bad it doesn't always live up to its promises.
