One hour of Dutch psychological horror.
2 October 2000 | by teljiladSee all my reviews

Those with a more than average knowledge of horror cinema, will undoubtedly recognize the fact that this genre is almost non-existent in the Netherlands. Only a few movies ever saw the light, let alone full-length movies. Perhaps one hour doesn't really count as full... but hey... give this small country a break.

Necrophobia is a small gem of a Dutch psychological horror movie about a man whose wife passed away after an accident, and his confrontation with a beautiful but macabre woman after her burial.

Both collaborating directors have made this movie into a visual treat in every shot, and the music sounds really dated but adds to the sinister atmosphere. All in all, this movie is worth watching for all lovers of the genre. It certainly leaves behind movies like "De Johnsons" and "Intensive care", and can easily rival "De lift" or "Amsterdamned", even though its budget was far less.
