First of all, kudos on the title of this one, not only is it clever yet it's accurate. If you like cheap and shocking then this is so most definitely the film for you! It's about a couple who just happen to be necrophiliacs. The husband lucked out as far as works goes, because he's a road sweeper who cleans up bodies after accidents. Did I mention he loves to take his work home with him? When he gets fired, will his wife be able to put up with the lack of fresh corpses? It's very gory and surprisingly well shot as far as gross imagery and such goes, also it's extremely serious tone put things in a different light (although there is definitely some dry dark humour). Definitely an unusual film that fans of "gross" will need to see, it's just hard to find a copy of I warn thee!
