Plot – Spoilers:
A German classic in effed up movies from the ’80s, Nekromamtik continues to remain banned in a number of countries.
Schmadtke is a disturbed wimpy young man who works for a weird company that is into clearing up accident victims and decomposing bodies once the police work has been completed. Schmadtke being a necrophiliac, takes full advantage of his job and collects body parts which he then stores in the apartment he shares with his girlfriend Betty. Every other day, he brings home trophies from work, and in a way, buys Betty’s continued interest in him. She is a more ‘together’ necrophiliac than him and their relationship is based on their shared kink. The terms of such a relationship is what Nekromatik seeks to understand apart from Schmadtke’s desperate loneliness.
Overall, Nekromantik is a fine exploration of necrophilia, best exemplified by a threesome scene with a decomposing corpse – Schmadtke saws off a pipe for Betty to fashion a cock from, so she can ride the corpse.
There are plenty of other fucked up scenes but one of the more memorable scenes is that of a car crash wreckage scene set to music. This seems like a Jörg Buttgereit staple and often occurs in all his movies, Der Todesking for example. Harakiri too appears to be a recurring theme and Nekromantik includes a scene of stabbing oneself to death while cumming buckets of cum and blood.
