Jörg Buttgereit, Germany, 1991, Cult Epics, Horror - Germany

“An exceptionally quiet and observant display of transgression.” -- Eli Hayes, Letterboxd

Such is the corrosive power of transgressive art that movies like Jorg Buttgereit’s two NEKROMANTIKs could actually prompt the German government to declare them unfit for public consumption. Of course, when The Man sez “That’s too sick!”, that’s when the real-deal film fans start paying attention...

Monika is a beautiful necrophiliac who lives alone in Berlin (what a sentence!) By night, she prowls through cemeteries searching for fresh corpses. When she reads about the suicide of Rob (from the first NEKROMANTIK), she finds his grave to dig up his body and brings it home. Mark lives across town and makes his living dubbing sex films. After meeting Monika, romance blossoms -- but all is not well in Monika’s world, for she must make a final choice between loving the living or the dead.
