Arrow Video to Release ‘Nekromantik 2’ Director-Approved (UK) Blu-Ray

Director Jörg Buttgereit’s sequel to the horror shocker flick Nekromantik is receiving a director-approved special edition Blu-Ray from Arrow Video in the UK on July 3, 2017.

Nekromantik 2 is a film for those who can handle watching shocking scenes of extreme horror violence, but this might not be everyone’s cup of tea.

THE RETURN OF THE LOVING DEAD.

Monika isn’t like other young women. She shares her small flat with Rob, a recently disinterred corpse which serves as the object of her affections. But then she meets good-natured Mark, and soon finds herself torn between the prospect of a normal life with a living, breathing partner and her overwhelming desire for her rotting bed-fellow.

Once prosecuted in its native Germany for glorifying violence, Jörg Buttgereit’s follow-up to his ground-breaking Nekromantik is just as shocking as its reputation would suggest. But it’s also a profoundly moving (if decidedly twisted) love story, and a thought provoking meditation on the nature of life and death.
