Shocked. Astounded. Flabbergasted. These are all words that could be used to describe your reaction when we announced last week that we would be bringing Jörg Buttgereit's grimy 1987 underground classic Nekromantik to UK home video for the very first time later this year - fully uncut. Many were asking, "How on Earth did you get it past the BBFC?!" Others simply declared: "You'll never get this past the BBFC uncut!"
Well, ye of little faith, this morning we officially accepted the '18' category for Nekromantik and the title is now searchable on the BBFC website: http://www.bbfc.co.uk/releases/nekromantik-1987. Go ahead, take a look - as they say, seeing is believing!
Here follows some words of caution offered up by the BBFC regarding the film's contents:
"There are a number of scenes in which the principal characters have sex with heavily decayed corpses. These scenes include simulated penetration and oral sex. There is also a scene in which a man ejaculates a mixture of blood and semen, although this is clearly and obviously fake.
