Nekromantik.

Not for the squeamish, Director Jörg Buttgereit’s cult horror films delve deep into one of society's few remaining taboos: necromancy. Nekromantik follows a couple with similar beyond-the-grave fetishes with the feel of a disturbing home movie. And the '90s Schramm looks back on the life of real-life "Lipstick Killer," which includes sex with corpses, a crush on a prostitute and nailing his own penis to a table. Needless to say, the movies are teeming with graphic violence, so no one under 18 will be let in. Buttgereit himself will be on hand to discuss his movies between the screenings.
