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.

A new level of screwed up

Found myself saying 'oh no no no...god no....' constantly throughout. Watched it straight after the first and let me just say that this film is horrifying. Worse than martyrs...worse than salo...worse than a serbian film. Weirdly has a very beautiful soundtrack though. The front cover art is incredible. Really gross but you know exactly what you're walking into.
