This notorious, underground feature is exactly what the title implies...a film about necrophilia. Mind you, we're not talking about the freshly dead either. A sick young couple collects human body parts, but when the husband brings home an entire corpse, he finds his wife more attracted to the stiff than to him. This German gross-out film has some defenders, but (in case you   More...
