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

Truly remarkable
20 February 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

The plot, apparently simple, in fact is not simple at all. Nekro is not only entertainment, it is way more than that. It is cinema, you can see it, you can feel it, beautiful opening scenes, dream-like landscapes accompanied by the movie theme music in order to enhance the dramatic narrative and the emotional impact of the scene. This is the kind of movie that you will have to watch several times yet to be able to understand the message. Furthermore, once you get the message, you will need to find the key and be able to understand and unfold the connections between the events and characters that are evolving in two parallels worlds. Now, regarding David, all those visions, fears, is it for real or all this is just happening in his mind? Apparently George Santa has a telepathic communication, some sort of mental induction state from his mind to David's mind. At that time you will soon realize that we have entered a new dimension and have found ourselves in oneiric film context. Finally, once you got all those elements you will need to find the path, but bear in mind, there will be no return. Here, the equation is not at all mathematics; we are talking about symbolism, imagination and paranormal activity. Subsequently, all the elements of fear, suspense and emotion are crossing over your mind. The final conclusion is that Nekro-The Movie should be considered a cult film. Truly remarkable.
