Storyline

Graphic, low-budget gore-shocker about Rob and Betty, a couple of ordinary necrophiles who apparently don't mind if their dead sexual partners are not so fresh. Rob's job affords him the opportunity to bring home corpses and the odd body part; when he loses his job, he loses Betty, and Rob's life gets REALLY bizarre. Written by Jeff Hole <jeffhole@aol.com>

LOVE MEANS NEVER HAVING TO SAY YOU'RE DEAD.
18 July 2001 | by (Cardiff,Wales) – See all my reviews

I look upon the incredibly gory and perverse NEKROMANTIK as a black comedy which it undoubtedly is.This is a movie where a wife leaves her husband and also leaves him a note telling him that she does want to waste the best years of her life with him;bearing in mind that she has just run away with a rotting corpse to take as a lover then this must rank as the ultimate putdown.The movie is not a masterpiece of production expertise but it does serve up gore by the bucketload,much of it exceeding anything that most of us have ever seen before.The end in particular is incredibly sick but also comedic at the same time.If you are not easily offended and are able to get in on the joke then NEKROMANTIK is worth 75 minutes of your time.
