“Ground-breakingly gruesome, the first erotic film for necrophiles.” – John Waters

SYNOPSIS

The controversial horror film that shocked the world in 1987, when it was banned in Germany, censored in Japan and simultaneously became a huge underground hit in the US (now long out of print.)

Nekromantik tells the story of Rob (Daktari Lorenz) who works at a street-cleaning Agency, and visits roadside accidents to clean up the scene. Incidentally Rob collects the body parts and shares them with his girlfriend Betty (Beatrice M.) When Rob presents a complete corpse taken out of a swamp, their undying love reaches its peak, but soon after Betty gets a more liking towards the corpse and leaves Rob, which takes him to the sick end of his destruction.

Cult Epics is proud to release Jorg Buttgereit’s underground horror classic in High Definition and with new extras, including Nekromantik’s predecessor short film Hot Love.
