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>

A beautiful film.
24 September 2003 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Jorg Buttgereit's "Nekromantik" is one of the most taboo-breaking horror films ever made.Very few movies talk openly about necrophilia("Aftermath","Kissed","Buio Omega","Lucker","Love Me Deadly","Nekro","Mosquito the Rapist"),however this subject is quite fascinating because it draws links between sex and death.Rob(Daktari Lorenz)cleans different places and removes the corpses whenever there was a murder,or an accident.One day,Rob's girlfriend(Beatrice M.)has an idea to steal a corpse and to play with it.The corpse is treated like the third person and all of them make a perverted threesome.But one day Rob is fired from his work and his girlfriend dumps him,and leaves with the dead lover.For Rob it's a beginning of complete madness... "Nekromantik" is pretty gross-there is plenty of yucky gore on display.The ending is truly sick and memorable.So if you like extreme cinema give this one a look.8 out of 10.
