The return of the loving dead will be available once more on the format that first made it notorious, as Jörg Buttgereit’s NEKROMANTIK 2 is being issued in multiple VHS sets by Cult Epics.

The company has three different ways to pre-order NEKROMANTIK 2, which will be released on March 15. The movie’s synopsis: “A beautiful necrophiliac, who works by day as a nurse and prowls cemeteries by night in search for fresh corpses, finds the grave of NEKROMANTIK’s Rob and brings him home. When her real-life relationship begins to falter, she has to make a final choice between the living and the dead, with gruesome consequences.”

The NEKROMANTIK 2 VHS is available in a numbered limited-edition (only 25 copies) in a clamshell case with art by Parker Richardson (first cover below) for $29.95, and in two different box sets (regular and “Blood Variant”) signed by artist Martin Trafford (25 available of each), each containing unique cover art, an exclusive T-shirt, an exclusive set of seven lobby cards and the NEKROMANTIK 3: SON OF NEKROMANTIK comic book, priced at $99.95 each. A new NEKROMANTIK 2 enamel pin is also available on its own or as an add-on to the VHS editions for $12. Head over to the Cult Epics website to pre-order any of these.
