Just like Rob in Nekromantik (1987), the young and beautiful Berliner, Monika, is leading a double life. By day, she is a solicitous hospital nurse; however, at nights, she roams the city's graveyards in search of fresh cadavers. Then, unexpectedly, Monika stumbles upon an unfortunate stranger's sad suicide in the obituaries, and, as death is not always the end, she exhumes the cold and pale corpse of the recently deceased man, and does the unthinkable: she brings it home under the nose of her new sweetheart, Mark. Under those circumstances--as Monika's unappeased necrophilic obsession threatens to surface--sooner or later, she will have to make a difficult decision: choose between the affection for the living or the romantic love for what was once alive.

Slow and ultimately pointless
11 September 2002 | by DocEmmettBrownSee all my reviews

The first Nekromatik was an original concept and was executed in a darkly original way (as has become Buttgereit's style). Sadly the sequel seems merely to rehash the original's ideas and does so without the flair and inventiveness of the original. Admittedly the ending truly must be seen to be believed and easily equals if not tops the originals ending, but the rest of the film (a gruesome dismemberment and a pointless seal autopsy aside) is extremely slow paced, especially the 'art' cinema scene. With a film as original and shocking as Nekromantik a sequel was never going to pack the same punch. If you're a fan of the first film I strongly suggest you check out Schramm or the excellent Der Todes King instead.
