Cult Epics presents the third release in the series Corpse Fucking Art; Jorg Buttgereit’s powerful masterpiece Der Todesking (aka The Death King), made in-between Nekromantik (1987) and Nekromantik 2 (1991). Seven stories on Death and Suicide, each taking place on a different day of the week, enframed by the decomposition of a human body. Warning: extremely graphic.
Der Todesking, available for the first time on Blu-Ray, is presented Uncut and Uncensored in a new High Definition transfer, including the bonus Shockumentary Corpse Fucking Art; an in-depth look behind the scenes of Nekromantik, Nekromantik 2 and Der Todesking.
