A rotting love story - Nekromantik at the cinema

By midlandsmovies, Sep 10 2014 07:44PM

This Friday the Derby Quad will be giving the regions horror lovers a treat as they show the highly controversial, widely banned and taboo-breaking Nekromantik (1988). Never previously submitted to the BBFC, 2014 marks the first official release and certification of the film and is a must for all horror fans to see on the big screen.


Coming from the mind of infamous German director and SFX artist Jörg Buttgereit this demented tale of love follows a street sweeper who cleans up after grisly accidents bringing home a full corpse for him and his wife to enjoy sexually, but is dismayed to see that his wife prefers the corpse over him, bringing a whole new meaning to the term of having a stiff one in bed!


The film is being shown as part of Quad’s Fright Night and programmer Adam Marsh (writer of ‘Devils Tower’) stated “To be honest I never thought I would ever see Nekromantik on a cinema screen let alone be able to programme the film at my cinema. I think it is a great audience film and it is great that people we get to enjoy the film together. Cinema bringing people together, through gore and necrophilia."


As is customary at the fantastic Fright Night, the film will also be preceded by an introduction by horror historian Darrell Buxton.


The film is showing at 20:50 on Friday 12 September.
