Romance is dead!
Messed Up Puzzles and Cult Epics have partnered up to bring you the first ever series of jigsaw puzzles for necrophiles. Nekromantik and Nekromantik 2: The Return of the Loving Dead have joined the Messed Up family as Nos. 7 and 8, respectively. Each one features 1000 corpse-riding pieces cut from the original art by Andreas Marschall (Masks, Tears of Kali).
Banned in Germany upon their release, Jörg Buttgereit’s Nekromantik films can now be proudly assembled in your home without being in violation of German penal code section 131!
Much like this summer’s Maniac release, this line of puzzles is a treasure hunt. 1 in 50 of each title is signed by director Jörg Buttgereit (randomly distributed), only to be revealed once the puzzle has been assembled. And those who love the dead enough to order Nekromantik and Nekromantik 2 bundles will receive a limited edition exclusive: All bundled orders will ship with a never before seen glossy print of Buttgereit by photographer Jan Willem Steenmeijer, seen below.
Pre-orders are available now from the Messed Up Puzzles website, with puzzles shipping in time for the holidays. This is a limited run of only 300 of each title, only 50 of those available through Cult Epics website, so order now before they’re back in the grave!
For the uninitiated, Nekromantik concerns the ménage a trois between Rob, his girlfriend, and the corpse he brings home from his job cleaning up after grisly accidents. This doesn’t end as well as one might think. In Nekromantik 2, a beautiful, grave-digging nurse explores her necrophilia and has to choose between the living and the dead with regard to her love life.
