Independent U.S. distributors Cult Epics will have a special 35mm screening of German director Jörg Buttgereit's controversial horror film Nekromantik (1987) at the American Cinematheque in Los Angeles on October 24th in anticipation of their new transfer of the film, which will be used for a brand new Blu-ray release set to arrive on the U.S. market in 2014.
Director Buttgereit will appear at the October 24th screening of Nekromantik, bringing other short films along with him, during BeyondFest at the Egyptian Theatre, as well as at the Saturday, October 26th screening at the Housecore Horror Film Festival in Austin, TX, to promote a fundraising program for German Angst, an extreme horror film collaboration of director Buttgereit (Nekromantik, Der Todesking) with Andreas Marschall (Tears of Kali, Masks), and Michael Kosakowski (Zero Killed).
In addition to Nekromantik, in 2014 Cult Epics will also bring to Blu-ray Rene Daalder's Hysteria (February), George Barry's Death Bed (March), and Michal Kosakowski's Zero Killed (April).
