Monika isn't like other young women, she shares her flat with Rob, A corpse which serves as the object of her affections, one day she meets Mark a good natured man and finds herself torn between the living and the dead, can she have a normal relationship with a living breathing man when her rotting true desire is home in her bed!
This movie truly is as messed up as it sounds, like the original don't watch on a full stomach or you may loose it, the sequel may not be as original as the first movie but its just as well made and just as disturbing, the two main actors are great and carry the story well, Monika M has to do some disgusting things, the effects once again are simple but good, nice soundtrack score, this certainly will not be everyone's cup of tea but horror it certainly is none the less, for a low budget movie it has quite an impact and you just want to keep watching to see how much further it can go, if you like weird messed up things then the nekromantik movies are way up there, creepy and disturbing and probably one of the best messed up crazy gory end sequences to a movie ever! be sure to check it out.
The Arrow Blu-ray is amazing, picture looks really good.
Tons of features, commentaries, lots of documentaries on the making, behind the scenes, outtakes, plus tons more, if you get the limited edition you get a sweet 100 page book and a 24-track soundtrack score CD.
Limited edition region B only, 1991, running time 103-mins.
Necrophilia, or the urge to crack open a cold one, has generally been something of a taboo subject in cinema. Certain horror films such as Riccardo Freda's "The Horrible Dr. Hichcock" have touched upon the subject but Jorg Buttgereit's "Nekromantik" films tackle it full-on and in graphic detail.
Monika is a bit of a strange girl who is fascinated with dead things. She has a "normal" boyfriend called Mark, who has a job dubbing hardcore porn films (if you can call that normal) but Monika fancies a bit a necro-nookie as well so she digs up the corpse of a guy called Rob, who committed suicide at the end of the first movie, and takes it home. Mark becomes at bit suspicious of Monika's strange fetishes when she keeps asking him to remain still when they make love. She also likes to invite her friends around and watch stuff like a seal autopsy on the television. It can all only end in tragedy as events move towards a bizarre and shocking climax.
As you've probably guessed, "Nekromantik 2" is a rather unusual film that certainly is not for all tastes. In fact, I'm sure that most people will find this film extremely offensive.Read more ›
This seems like a half hearted cash in of the first movie, rather than a follow up, even though the story does take off from the last scene of the original.
Whereas the first film was full of beautiful and haunting imagery and was short enough to carry you along, this sequel feels forever lethargic.
LONG, drawn out scenes of talking and copy-cat imagery from the original do very little to help this from constantly getting up to make another drink ect...
It's saving grace ( for gorehounds and suchlike ) are it's quite repugnant and startling special effects, that you'd come to expect from a Buttgereit piece.
The bathroom section, played out like a tender love scene, is something to behold, considering what is going on. And the film's final moments are jaw dropping, both in it's shock value and grotesque imagery. Credit to the effects people who worked on this movie because, considering it's rather low budget, the qulaity of the make up and trickery is astounding.
Be Warned, animal lovers, there is a drawn out scene of a seal being skinned for it's fur, in this movie.
However, ARROW DID IT, and seriously, in an unimaginable and deluxe way...for one of the most disturbing and disgusting films ever made.
The whole film was in, I presume, 2K scan , which made it in HD format on blu-ray and dvd, and seem less "scary" and "gorelick".
