NECROMENTIA

DVD Review by David Blackwell

 

DETAILS:  85 minutes, audio commentary, Q&A fetaurtte

VIDEO:  1.78:1 (Anamorphic Widescreen)

AUDIO:  English 5.1 Dolby Digital

Subtitles:  English, Spanish

 

STUDIO:  Imagine Entertainment/ Compound B/ Eslinger Joyce Productions

RELEASE DATE:  9-14-2010

NECROMENTIA starts with Hagen who is caring for Elizabeth (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.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES:

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.
