Storyline

Inspired by some actual, but never publicized facts, the NEKRO story is staged in settings and locations specific to the mid-eighties in Romania. Its basic building block is the eternal fight between God and Satan. "Securitatea", then the Communist State Security Service, spots out an illegal religious sect. David, a colonel serving with Securitatea, is assigned to eradicate the sect. He arrests the leader of the sect and subjects him to a series of sadistic interrogations. During the interrogations, David's mind blurs out. He gets revelations from the World of Darkness, and starts acting as a demon-possessed man. The leader of the sect vanishes. Diagnosed as a madman by a psychiatrist, David is dismissed from Securitatea. Eight years later, David senses the presence of his Master in the surroundings, but cannot locate him. Then, he sees on the news the former leader of the sect, who returned to Romania as a film producer. He's the Master, David has no doubt, the former leader of the ... Written by George. A

Brilliant!
16 January 2009 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

NEKRO, a suspense movie not to be missed, it is a great film, a deep thriller that thrills. You are taken on a voyage of discovery, the dark side of life. A forest, an isolated house, a hidden crimson room. Beautiful young women, murdered and violated wrapped in a red blanket, the signature of the killer? Who is the Beast? The Witch is that the scent of the Devil? Then there is the Colonel who pays the ultimate price, the life of his child, his own life, in the hope that in another place, another dimension, he can make Good conquer Evil. Is it real? Is it imagined? Often you think you know but then there is another twist, another turn in this complex plot and you wonder, what you should believe, what can you believe. Brilliant! This is a must have film, on one viewing you cannot absorb the mastery of the plot, the depth of the characters, the complexities of the paranormal, nor the depth of the questions it asks.
