A female nurse desperately tries to hide her feelings of necrophilia from her new boyfriend, but still has pieces of the corpse of the first movie's hero in her possession.
Didn't like this one as much as the first but it was ok. The first was funny and even somewhat sensual, this was a bit dull, though still had some nice corpse-y scenes.
Jörg Buttgereit has created a sequel to his schlock fest Nekromantik. With this one, he explores the same tasteless ideas that have made the first one such a controversial film. Pushing the boundaries of good taste yet again, Buttgereit recycles idea from his first shameful movie and tries to create something new. The only problem is, is that this is still a dreadful piece of reprehensible trash that never should have existed in the first place. The sequel is nothing new, and doesn't add anything more to the "story" of the first. This is still the same thing, and pushes the envelope just for the sake of disturbing the audience. If you've seen the first one, then you've seen this…
i get the idea here, much like the first, was to make just a love from a woman's point of view that just happens to about loving dead people but this one itself is a little dead.
while 2 has some moments, it is a lot less "WHOA" & a lot less fun then the previous NEKROMANTIK film. while this one is still worth a watch, most of the whoa moments find the sequel riffing off things that have already been done & done more wildly in the first. there's an absurd musical interlude that livens things up, the effects are great but at 98 minutes it feels way too long.
On a random Valentine's Day sometime back, I watched NEKROMANTIK for the 1st time in an "alternate love story" marathon along with BREAKING POINT: A PORNOGRAPHIC THRILLER and NAKED VENGEANCE. The joke was on me because NEKTROMANTIK is, icky bits aside, a tragic and engrossing love story.
So this Valentine's Day I, along with my roommate, sat down with some pizza and watched the sequel. NEKROMANTIK 2 ups the ante on love-dovey dating/sexy times and necrophilia-based grossness while maintaing a strong vision, a so-dark-no-light-can-escape streak of humor and some really great music. It's more experimental than the first (a movie-within-the-movie involving two naked people sitting outside eating eggs and talking about birds feels not at all out of place) and runs a little long. Still, it's a movie far better movie than one would imagine, especially when frequently tarnished by a wholly inaccurate reputation based on ignorance.
