NECROMENTIA starts with Hagen who is caring
(who is dead and he is tending to her corpse). He waits for her to come back
to him. Hagen gets drawn
into a plan hatched by Travis to get him to go through a portal to Hell. Hagen
wants to bring Elizabeth back from the dead while Travis wants his disabled brother
Thomas back. Meanwhile, Morbius is manipulating Travis to bring Hagen
to Hell. NECROMENTIA is a series of interconnecting stories about love
that end in tragedy. Revealing why Morbius is manipulating things and how
everyone is connected would ruin the experience of watching NECROMENTIA. Pearry
Teo’s vision of Hell is different and less dramatic. It is stark, endless,
and nihilistic. The guy playing Morbius gives a unique performance (and
one reviewer remarks he is the blue David Bowie). Pearry Teo has a unique cinematic style that makes the film stands out on visuals alone no matter
how one likes or hates the rest of the film. I
would be down for a sequel to NECROMENTIA if Pearry Teo ever thinks of making a sequel.
Feature audio commentary by Director Pearry
Teo, and Actors Shad Grimes (Travis) and Crow Garrett (Connor). It gives the
personal experiences they had in making the film including that one of the Red One cameras (used to shoot this film) was patched
back together to make it work again.
Q&A WITH PERRY TEO AND SHAD GRIMES
(Hosted by Wendy Carlson)- Pearry and Shad answer fan questions and Wendy’s questions about the film. It is interesting to know there are two deleted scenes that aren’t one on the DVD (including an abortion
scene that offended many people)
FINAL ANALYSIS: NECROMENTIA is an interesting take on love and tragedy in the form of a horror film. If you loved the GENE GENERATION, you will want to watch NECROMENTIA.
Also recommended for fans of HELLRAISER.
