Nekromantik is back! Cult Epics is set to give the controversial film the (limited) blu-ray treatment

I'm sure fans are anxious to get the whole Titan Video masquerade wiped from their memory.  Cult Epics is planning on making that notion a real possibility.  This October fans will be able to retire the ol' Barrel Entertainment DVD and pick up a brand new limited edition set of the infamous film.  You read that right, this October you'll be able to curl up next to the one you love and watch Nekromantik in high definition.  That's romance right there.

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, who 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 horror classic in High Definition and with new extras, including Jorg's debut short film Hot Love.

  1. Hope this is a romantic and horror type movie. Though I have not watched yet. Now I am interested to watch this film. I want to take it in a DVD. For this I need a DVD duplication service. I want to keep it in my preservation for long days.
