HIDDEN HORROR – Necrophobia

necrophobiaNow if your looking for a horror film that is so damn obscure or as we like to call it “Hidden” that most horror fans havent even heard of it and so damn “hidden” that there is hardly any talk or reviews of it on the internet! then Ive got one for you dear Horrorfiends, a very dark, depressing and damn macabre piece of 90s horror cinema that comes from the Netherlands, a 60 minute horror film called “Necrophobia”

Necrophobia is about a simple man named Mark who sadly loses his beautiful loving wife in a heartbraking and particularly nasty roadside accident. At the funeral he notices two women arguing and ends up meeting one of the mysterious women named Colette who happens to be a widow herself and like Mark traumatized and deeply hurt by her loss. They soon try to begin a new love with each other but it is filled with more death, and a “love of the dead”.

necrophobia6Now despite Necrophobia’s short running time it still packs quite a wallop for Horror fans and those wanting something depressing. The characters, story and photography are all engaging and the scenes of horror are both macabre as hell but also quite fun with eerie blue lighting, hanging rattling chains, rotting corpses strewn about, a mysterious woman having sex with those corpses! and a few gory murders including some good chainsaw scenes in there, you can tell that they made the film with a passion for horror cinema.

And finally the ending to this rare gem is one hell of a grim and and depressing ending.
