My Beautiful Wickedness

What a world, what a world - I can't believe we live in a world where Jörg Buttgereit's 1988 cinematic love-letter to necrophilia called Nekromantik has been released on blu-ray. And with a ton of special features! That's nuts, you guys. I have my favorite college professor to thank for latching me on the Nekromantik train - he showed the sequel, Nekromantik 2, in no fewer than three classes I took with him. Nekromantik 2, which I actually think is a slightly more interesting movie (from an educational perspective, obviously) than the original, isn't really available on disc though (you can get an Import DVD for 45 bucks); I was hoping this just-released fancy-pants edition of the first one would just include the sequel but it doesn't seem to be the case. But still. This is really far out there stuff, you guys. I wouldn't be the sicko you've come to know and fear and maybe just a widdle-bit wink wink nudge nudge love without it!
