This film has a great title, idea, sick and twisted original cover art (which almost reminded me of an old Cannibal Corpse or goregrind bands cover art) from Austrian director Tom Heidenberg. This opus in Necrophilia and torment of the human psyche, is a depressing assault to the senses. Clocking in at around the 52-minute-mark, it actually goes on for too long without building up to much in the end. In an interview, director Heidenberg admits to being influenced by Nekromantik, so for one to say he's unoriginal is a bit harsh; the man liked the movie and felt he had his own point to make in the genre and was inspired by the film. Necrophile Passion and Nekromantik are different entities of film, except for the Necrophilia of course. The production and musical score is above average, it is filmed well, and I especially liked the black and white intro where the blood on the female corpse is the only original color.

Necrophile Passion has a lot of great things going for it; the slow moving pace just kills it at times. The movie’s plot is indeed twisted and sinister and a great setup. One day, our lead actor played by Gunther Brandl (who remains an unnamed character as all the characters in the movie do) is out for a walk in the woods and he discovers a freshly blood-covered corpse of a beautiful woman. His first reaction is to call for help on his cellphone. That idea quickly dissipates and instead something inside him snaps. He ends up dragging the dead naked girl to his car and eventually into his apartment. He violates the corpse by turning her over on her stomach and taking it from behind in a soft core porn style manner. Great intro for sure, the movie is broken down into different chapters, which is another idea I liked.

Much of
Necrophile Passion rests on the shoulders of actor Gunther Brandl who director Heidenberg is grateful for, as he mentions in an interview. Necrophile Passion was a work in progress since the early 2000's and Heidenberg admits he faced numerous challenges with actors bailing on him, or not giving him the serious performance he wanted. The movie is indeed a one man in a room movie for most of the duration with a lot of flashbacks spliced in. It’s not fast paced, it’s meant to be a slow deteriorating look into the abyss of the psyche of a broken and mentally distraught man. Brandl's character sits and contemplates how his mother verbally and emotionally abused him. Some of these scenes are not quite as effective as one would hope. We also get numerous segways into different females having soft-core sex with corpses -- shocking for sure as they are smearing the blood and riding the corpses furiously, but it does get a bit tiresome and the shock value is not quite there.

Brandl does a great job as the depressive laden lead character, whose personal relationship with his girlfriend has all but failed. He sits on his couch, cracks open a beer and tries to figure out how it all went wrong. Things were good between them in the beginning but she drifts away from him and the routine becomes too painful and predictable for her. Brandl's character, obviously an already mentally disturbed individual, turns to lifeless corpses to ease his pain, because he can no longer relate to the living. He cuts himself in grotesque close up fashion to feel the emotion of pain which lets him know he is still alive. Necrophile Passion features a small cast and minimal dialogue. It’s atmospheric and torturous. I have definitely not laid my eyes on a film with such a depressing feel to it, as this, in a long time. The ending has a painful blast of irony. The violence is not terribly graphic, but more of what it implies, especially the major taboo, the act of engaging in a sexual act with a corpse.

I would love to see what Heidenberg's twisted mind comes up with next, if he makes another movie. He seems to be a director who believes in doing what he wants to do with his movies, without bowing down or compromising and this is what independent filmmaking is all about. He admits to being fascinated with extreme music and art earlier in life and is not one who likes to be featured in the spotlight. If you’re into the Necrophilia genre of films such as Nekromantik, Lucker the Necrophagous and Aftermath etcetera, then
Necrophile Passion will whet your appetite. Please be in a good frame of mind and don't watch it if your girlfriend left you and you just lost your job!
