On the podcast this week, Necromantik.

This is a German film from the 80s, which is as transgressive as horror cinema gets. And it proves that neither budget nor characterization is required to produce something of long-lasting impact.

On the show:

  • Canadian cinema and Heimatsfilm, traditional German genre cinema
  • Jorg Buttgereit
  • Internalized horror, as in the Bill Lustig film, Maniac
  • Transgressive horror and desensitization
