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

the movie is great
7 November 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

this is a very interesting thriller. i strongly recommend to everybody to see it. there is tension and action so just go and watch it!!!!!!!!!!! when i rented the movie i thought: well just another boring thriller. but soon i got captivated by the action. the girls playing are gorgeous and the actors are really talented. also not to forget its sound and the modern techniques used to shoot the movies. the action is very vivid and you hardly wait to see the next scene. so no kidding, i do believe is a very good movie and is worth seeing it. at the same time the time of the action is very interesting: the mid 80, Romania, an eastern European country, the atmosphere is very natural and creepy.
