    drterror666 Too Much... for One Movie!

    Released on 02 November 2015

    Monika isn't like other young women. She shares her small flat with Rob, a recently disinterred corpse which serves the object of her affections. But then the good-natured Mark comes into her life, and she finds herself torn between the prospect of a 'normal' life with a living partner and her overwhelming love 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 death – that most mysterious aspect of the human condition.

    I expect this will be the same transfer as Cult Epics' version. Cult Epics recently released Der Todesking, so I'm expecting that in the near future. As for Schramm, well, who knows? I think Barrel were the last place to release that on DVD.

    Will definitely be getting this, though. Serious no-brainer!

    I don't think we'll get the same situation here as with the Hellraiser box. That was because of an artwork issue late in the day.

    Artwork issue ? Was not aware of that, pissed that I missed this box set (Hellraiser) but can't have everything. Checked my order status on Amazon for N2, release date has changed to 7th of December.

    Apparently, the place that does the boxes buggered up the colours.

    The N2 date change is because have another issue that they can't ignore and won't release the set until it's perfect. Better than having duff disks!
