EPISODE 52: LOVING THE DEAD - Nekromantik 2 (1991) & Kissed (1996)
In this episode, we are officially covering our first two films of our broadened cinematic scope on the podcast and venturing into the taboo subject of necrophilia. But we are being DOUBLY subversive and talking specifically about female necrophilia and its representation in two similar but very different films - the Canadian independent film Kissed from 1996 and the German cult classic Nekromantik 2 from 1991.
Enjoy and welcome to our dark side…
