    Juraz Herz's The Cremator (1968) - Second Run BD

    Presented from new HD materials, Second Run presents a special Blu-ray edition of one of its most enduringly popular titles Juraj Herz s The Cremator.

    The Cremator has been described in many ways as surrealist-inspired horror film, as an expressionistic political allegory, a pitch-black comic satire and as a dark and disturbing tale of terror.

    This brilliantly chilling film, a unique mix of Psycho, Dr Strangelove and Repulsion, is set in Prague during the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia. It tells the story of one Karl Kopfrkingl (Rudolf Hru ínský), a professional cremator, for whom the political climate allows free rein to his increasingly perverse and deranged impulses for the salvation of the world .

    Now more chillingly prescient than ever, The Cremator also contains another of master-composer Zden k Li ka s brilliantly inventive film scores.

    This film is marvellous. I urge anyone who hasn't seen it to check it out. I was blown away by it.
