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.
