Editorial Reviews

This dark, twisted tale of erotic tortures and shocking torment dares to open the gates of hell for three men desperate to transcend the boundaries of death. One harbors a lingering passion for his dead girlfriend, another is a professional sadist determined to save his troubled brother, and the third hungers for the most brutal kind of revenge. But to open the portals of hell, an ancient map of the occult must be carefully carved into one man's flesh. From the acclaimed director of The Gene Generation, NECROMENTIA is a disturbing nightmare that will haunt your dreams long after it's over.

    Necromentia is a noticeable step up from most Redbox fare, but doesn't live up to the hype that the DVD cover quotes offer.

    Pros: The visuals for the movie are better than most new horror films. While the directing and cinematography isn't anything special, the costumes and gore effects are fresh and original. The film is kept dark and unique with bizarre characters like Mr. Skinny, a pig-mask wearing butcher that pushes people to suicide. I was impressed most with the chain-wielding demon that wanders the underworld, one of the more disturbing creatures that I've seen in film. If you're a fan of gore and pain, this movie will be right up your alley.

    Shots that take place in the underworld are set in a cramped industrial basement corridor, lit with fluorescent lights a la Saw. While I originally considered it low-budget, the foreboding and claustrophobic feel of it lent to the dark vibe of the film.

    Cons: Most horror fans will notice that Necromentia takes a page straight from Hellraiser. While the film does offer some twists on Clive Barker themes, it's not entirely original. References to Saw on the cover are confusing; there are really no similarities beyond a few acts of masochism that don't serve the same purpose.

    Most of the cast had experience in straight-to-video film, and none of the performances stand out. Though I did enjoy film newbie Zelieann Rivera, the gorgeous Latina responsible for the connection that slowly unfolds between the major characters.

    My biggest gripe with the film is that the ending could have been better. By the conclusion, you get a sense of what happened, but I thought it was too abrupt and without adequate closure.

    While Necromentia wasn't quite movie-theater quality, it's still worth a rental. Give this one a watch before you decide on buying the DVD.

    The synopsis given by another viewer was accurate; however, this movie does require you to use your brain. You really do need to remember every little detail or you will think the movie has an abrupt ending. The ending is not abrupt but rather it proves a point that was said earlier in the film. If you remember what was said then the ending makes perfect sense and you do not need any further closure. This is a horror movie and there is no justice or happy endings. It may be a true depiction of what hell would give you...
    This movie is a must see for avid horror and gore fans. It does run along the same lines as Clive Barker but that is what is so horrifically hot about this kind of movie.
    Additionally, I think quite a few performances stand out but this is too dark for mainstream cinema; however, if there had been a huge producer behind it...it may not be the great movie it is today...mainstream cinema would have made so many changes...Thank goodness for indie films and/or films that are not willing to be compromised to go mainstream. I hope anyone who views this movie or buys this movie enjoys it as much as I did...~A~

    This is not an A-list horror movie, and you shouldn't be expecting Meryl Streep or Helen Mirren quality acting. I thought that the plot was interesting and in parts disturbing enough that I really enjoy this movie. I definitely recommend renting it online, and let the creepiness ooze out of your TV.

    <strong>Necromentia</strong> (Pearry Reginald Teo, 2009)

    Okay, so, yeah, let's get this out of the way first: it's pretty obvious that Pearry Reginald Teo is a big, big fan of Clive Barker's. That is not limited to this film; if you read the IMDB descriptions of his earlier shorts, there's a lot of this sort of thing going on. (In fact, it would seem to me based on the description that this may be a feature-length reworking of his first short, "Liberata Me".) And if you're going to look at this and say "oh, he's just ripping off 'The Book of Blood' and 'The Hellbound Heart'", this is not the movie for you. Think of it this way: there are only thirty-six plots. (Absurd reductionists can point to the fact that all thirty-six are outgrowths of the original three: man vs. self, man vs. man, man vs. nature.) Nothing is truly original. Think of this less as rip-off and more as homage.

    The story: Hagen (<em>The Last Man</em>'s Santiago Craig) is a little bit of a nutcase. He's obsessed with his dead girlfriend Elizabeth (Zelieann Rivera, who was the second assistant director on that same film), who promised that, if she ever died, she would come back to him. As such, he has kept her around, and tries to stave off putrefaction with regular bathings, keeping the place cold, you know the drill if you've ever tried to store a body, right? In any case, Hagen is approached by Travis (<em>Redemption</em>'s Chad Grimes), who offers him a deal: Travis knows how to get Hagen into the corridors of Hell, where Elizabeth's soul is held by a demon named Morbius (Teo regular Layton Matthews). What does Travis get out of the deal?
