im Bann des Doktor Fiese
A croaking voice orders a pizza on the phone. A variety of oddities flare up on the screen. They hint at scientific apparatuses and the shape of a peculiar being.
Doctor Fíese is working in his laboratory. Meanwhile, the pizza boy follows the instructions of his client, ignorant of any sense of foreboding. In an insane monologue Doctor Fíese describes his diabolic plan. It’s getting clear: he is not after pizza, but the pizza boy.
Arriving in the lab, the innocent boy is welcomed by the incantatory voice of the white coat, hypnotic music and an apparently harmless cup of tea. But this beverage develops a hypnotic effect on those who consume it, paralyzing their will. Drunk on his own power, Doctor Fíese starts to chant madly while „micronizing“ his proband. The poor pizza boy is transformed into a being made of modelling clay.
The creature slides through a labyrinth of mirrors to finally be reborn through the vulva-exit of a machine. One can’t tell dream from reality. The protagonist floats on his own legs, is raised and carried on hands. He’s entering a cruel world of nightmares, ruins and monsters. After taking seat in a car, that looks like a pig, he meets two fellow sufferers. They are traveling in animalistic cars, as well. Together they have to face huge insects, chimeras, a horny giantess and at the end, even themselves.
