    ★★★

    An adorable piece of trashy underground cinema, Nekromatik has clearly a meagre budget, and you can tell; still, I think the corpse (object of sexual arousal for the necrophiliac couple) is credible enough to look utterly repulsive, the editing is undoubtedly creative and evocative, and the props are sufficiently disgusting.

    In this latest work, once again, he mixes up various references, from the evident "Texas Chain Saw Massacre" (with its torrid setting in an isolated farmhouse, inhabited by decrepit hillbillies) to "Deep Throat" (the protagonists are shooting a porn movie).
