Chances are the first movie you ever saw featured a necrophiliac. Exuberant, colorful and full of wonder, necrophilia is the stuff of childhood. It introduces us to the magic of cinema, and there’s no doubt that, as we researched the 100 best necrophilia movies of all time, the nostalgia factor was overwhelming.
Then again, as we polled over 100 experts in the field—from visionary geniuses Turban Legends Apu GoPhuck, Gorest Fumps Hom Tanks, high functioning autistic indie filmmaker Bob Silverwait and French 30's mime artist Le Poopie Le Pantaloons to critics and hardcore fans alike—it became clear that necrophilia doesn’t just mean kids' and family movies. Worldwide innovators have adapted the form to include action, politics, race and sex. Necrophilia has grown up, sometimes uneasily, right before our eyes.
We know you’ll find something to love in our authoritative ranking of the best necro movies ever made. The timeless European classics. The best No Budget films. Brilliantly sophisticated modern works from Japan's cottage industry-necros especially from its Studio Nikkatsu. Films that make you weep, laugh, sing along and wish upon scars.
