Directed by Jorg Buttgereit

A twisted man brings home a corpse for him and his wife to use sexually in this controversial cult hit from German director Jörg Buttgereit. Rob and Betty are hardcore necrophiliacs. But when Betty runs away with the decaying corpse Rob's brought home, things get really, really messed up. Though NEKROMANTIK was banned in many countries thanks to its extreme subject matter, the film's perverse parodic edge made it a hit with horror and extreme cinema fans (including John Waters) in 1987. Even today, it's not for the faint of heart - or easily offended. (In German with English Subtitles) Contains strong language, sexual scenes, violence and gore.

A twisted couple practice necrophilia in this controversial cult hit.

Cast: Bernd Daktari Lorenz, Beatrice Manowski, Harald Lundt

It’s so dull. It’s an old school artsy German movie about necrophilia. I skipped through most of it because it’s just that boring. I’m not sure why I kept watching it. The movie doesn’t even make sense. It just feels messy,some things aren’t described to the audience (which personally annoys me),it overall just feels like it’s all over the place. I’ve seen better scenes of necrophilia in horror movies that aren’t about necrophilia. If you’re looking for some suggestions,here’s some. High tension is a good one and so is House of 1000 corpses. Keep in mind,the movies aren’t based on that they just have scenes of it.

Many wooow’s in this movie, and super gross but funny. Couldn’t watch it normal, really boring. I skipped through to see the wow factors. The hairy legs and pitties are scary enough for me. I think this was overall dumb.

Okay, this movie is lame af. No plot, mediocre acting, slow and drawn out like hell. I watched this not on Shudder but on Blu Ray and ive already sold that copy. Won't waste my time rewatching this. Not sure why this was deemed "disturbing" or a cult classic... Watched it just to say I've seen it. The rabbit scene didn't disturb me, and I love animals, it's just nothing really disturbs me so I search for extremely disturbing films, banned films, etc because I'm interested in where people draw their line, what's too much for them. As a result, I have watched many a mediocre film claiming to be disturbing. This is one of those films. Do yourself a favor and watch "Nekromentia" instead.
