- Nekromantik 1987
Necrophilia is forbidden and morbid no-no’s in just about any society, and a very taboo subject to say the least. So a film that almost appears to glorify it is bound to get banned somewhere. Australia, New Zealand, U.K., Norway, Iceland, Singapore, Malaysia, Finland, and the Provinces of Nova Scotia and Ontario in Canada have all banned the film for outrageous and audacious content, offensive and abhorrent imagery. The flick tells the tale of a man, Rob Schmadtke, whose job it is to remove bodies from public areas, and who also happens to have a morbid obsession he shares with his girlfriend, evident in the various preserved human remains found in their apartment. At some point he brings home the body of a male, and both he and his girlfriend begin to carry on sexually with the corpse. As misfortune begins to befall Rob he loses his job, and his girlfriend decides to run off with the rotting cadaver. This film defied the censorship standards of West Germany and has managed to make a name for itself as a standout in exploitation horror. Disturbing and fascinating this one isn’t for everyone.
