Max Schreck-inspired necrophiliac and dancing zombies.
17 January 2015 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

"Le Necrophile" tells the story of eccentric loner with necrophiliac tendencies.He lives in a darkened apartment and eats cockroaches with his long chameleon-like tongue.One day his relatives died and he is forced to take care of a little girl.So begins strange relationship between aging necrophiliac and lovely blonde girl.Bizarre and a little bit twisted French horror short which surprisingly lacks graphic gore.The film is obviously inspired by silent cinema and Tim Burton fairy movies.The only controversial aspect of it is an obviously very young Ilona Szabo lying semi-naked and waiting for her necrophiliac guardian.All the scenes of necrophilia are off-screen.6 cockroaches out of 10.
