We’re proud to announce the 25th Anniversary Edition U.S. DVD release of Jörg Buttgereit’s infamous horror film, Nekromantik.
When Rob, a roadside corpse removal technician at “Joe’s Cleaning Agency” brings home a little something special for his girlfriend, Betty, the relationship couldn’t be any more blissful. The thing is, Rob’s gift just so happens to be an oozing, putrefied human body – and it’s got the couple turned on. Like all good things, the relationship ends, and Betty leaves Rob heartbroken – even taking the rotting sex object with her. Alone and on a dangerous downward spiral, Rob eventually hits rock bottom in the only style a deranged necrophile could. In 1987 Jӧrg Buttgereit unleashed his monstrous film of love, death, and what happens when you mix them both together. Arguably one of the most disturbing and influential cult films of all time, this necrophiliac wet dream classic returns to American DVD. Titan Video is proud to present Nekromantik, the film that has shocked viewers for over 25 years, back for another onslaught in the states.
