Editorial Reviews

Nekromantik (Blu-ray) The controversial horror film that shocked the world in 1987, when it was banned in Germany, censored in Japan and simultaneously became a huge underground hit in the US (now long out of print.) Nekromantik tells the story of Rob (Daktari Lorenz) who works at a street-cleaning Agency, who visits roadside accidents to clean up the scene. Incidentally, Rob collects the body parts and shares them with his girlfriend Betty (Beatrice M.) When Rob presents a complete corpse taken out of a swamp, their undying love reaches its peak, but soon after Betty starts liking the corpse and leaves Rob, which takes him to the sick end of his destruction.

I actually watched this on DVD from Netflix last night. Why did I rate this film 4 stars? The acting isn't that good. The cinematography isn't that good. The plot isn't that good. The pacing isn't that good. In fact the film just isn't that good, but what it did do was what I wanted it to do and that was gross me out completely. It's been a long time since I was that disgusted watching something, and that's a good thing. I'm a huge fan of horror films so I like to be grossed out and scared. While this film didn't scare me it almost made me look away. This would rank right up there with watching The Thing and An American Werewolf in London when I was a child and then again watching Cannibal Ferox (Make Them Die Slowly) when I was a teenager. So I give this film 4 stars for the plain fact that is lived up to it's potential and made me sick to my stomach. Excellent!

Never in the history of cinema has a director tackled such controversial subject matter, as that of necrophilia, and attempted to portray it in such a beautifully erotic way.
German cult director Jorg Buttgereit has done just that with his film Nekromantik. His film tells the story of two deeply depraved individuals, Rob and his girlfriend Betty, who are obsessed with collecting human body parts, which they keep on display in formaldehyde sealed jars throughout their apartment. Rob works for a roadside accident cleaning company and is responsible for bagging the dead bodies of car wreak victims, which gives him the perfect opportunity to add to his collection. Not content with body parts alone, Rob surprises Betty by bringing home a bloated corpse. Betty is overjoyed and the couple decide to introduce the corpse into their sex life. All is good, but as time goes on Betty becomes enamored with the corpse. She leaves Rob and takes the corpse for her own sexual pleasures. Unable to cope with his loss, Rob travels a twisted road of sickness and self-abuse before finally finding salvation in this one of a kind movie ending you have to see to believe.
This film is not for the faint-of-heart, and is extremely graphic in depicting scenes of gore and necrophilia. However, if you are a fan of exploitation films this is a must see. This is the definitive DVD release of this film and it's loaded with extras, you will not be disappointed.

A young man named Rob uses his job where he collects and disposes of corpses to help build his growing collection of body parts. Not satisfied with just collecting mere body parts, one day he brings home an intact corpse. Rob in not alone in his obsession for the dead, his girlfriend Betty is also a necrophiliac. Unfortunately there moment of bliss would be short lived and Rob’s world will be turned inside out when Betty decides to leave him for the corpse he recently brought home. Unable to cope with this great loss he seeks out new avenues in hope that he will be able to fill the void that now dominates his life.

Today’s audiences are constantly bombarded with violent imagery in films and in the news, which has led to a desensitization towards violence. And though it appears that each new film appears to be trying to outdo the last one when it comes to pushing the limits in regards to its depiction of violence. There are always going to be those films that are beyond the fringe that would shock even the most jaded cinema file. Case in point, Nekromantik a film that is just a potent today as the moment it was unleashed on audiences twenty six years ago.

On subject matter alone, there are very few films that are going to push buttons more than Nekromatik, a film that features a protagonist who obsession with necrophilia is bound to revolt the majority of perspective viewers. And if this were this film’s only objective, then it would have already faded away into obscurity.

Fortunately this film is not your run of mill shock and awe gore feast. And at the core of this film is story about love and death and how these two things are intertwined. Other subjects that this film explores include obsession and dealing with a loss of a loved one.

PLEASE DO NOT READ THIS REVIEW UNLESS YOU ARE OVER THE AGE OF 21, AND OR HAVE A LIGHT CONSTITUTION- I GET GRAPHIC...ALSO SPOILER ALERT, First I want to state that I have not watched this particular Blue-ray, but I have seen this movie on other formats (such as on DVD).
The overall purpose of this film was to show the life style of people who enjoy having physical relations with corpses. There was one scene in which a woman and a man had a corpse in their bed (the woman used a poll as a substitute for a man's....uh?....you know what). The scene involved sucking and loving the dead person up...and when I say dead, I mean dead. And it's not a, "just died" kinda dead. No, we're talking rotting in the earth for several years looking dead!. At first, I thought the corpse was real. This particular scene is what made this film so popular...and in fact, this film had been banned in several countries after its initial release.
What I had written above is why you would buy this film...and for no other reason. The overall story in un-interesting, bad acting, and other then the corpse, bad special effects. There is, however, a scene in which a man kills a real rabbit, and you actually watch the life drain from it. Personally, I don't have to watch this movie more then once. However, if YOU want to feel grossed out then buy this film. Don't buy it for the scare factor, because it's just not there. If you like movies with a lot of gore you should also try "Cannibal"- related to the real life incident of one man ki--ing and eat-ng his partner. The end of "Cannibal" is about 20 minutes of gross graphicness. Another gross film is "Nekromantik part two" (yes, they made a part two!). In the second one, it's pretty much the same story..
