With a torrid past that haunts him, a movie theatre owner is hired to search for the only existing print of a film so notorious that its single screening caused the viewers to become homicidally insane.
The bankrupted owner of the movie theater 'Vogue', Kirby Sweetman, is hired by the eccentric private collector Mr. Bellinger to search and find the only existing print of the legendary horror film "La Fin Absolue du Monde" by Hans Backovic. This lost film is considered magic and cursed, and has been presented only once to an audience at the Sitges Festival, driving the people insane and causing bloodshed in the theater. The director, the crew and everybody involved in its production seemingly have died since. Kirby owes 200.000 dollars to his father-in-law, who blames Kirby for the death of his daughter Annie, and accepts the assignment to pay his debt. Bellinger shows him a souvenir from the film in his basement, a chained angel that had his wings torn off in the movie. Kirby travels to France to meet a contact and has glimpses of his beloved Annie, initiating his journey to hell. Written by

When Kirby is confronted by Walter about the money he owes, Walter tells Kirby he's got one week to come up with it. Kirby towards the end of the movie gets the money and finds the theater chained up. When on the phone with one of the employees from the theater he says that he was given *two* weeks to get the money. See more »

What an awesome way for Mr. Carpenter to get back into the swing of things. This 1 hour of brilliance will FREAK YOU THE HECK OUT!!!!!!!!
Filled with surprises, twists and turns that don't stoop to the pathetic level of modern movies. However, its a signature Carpenter flick, thus it takes a few minutes for the movie to take off.
I will not sit here and tell you what the movie is about, thats your job to go and witness that for yourself. However, I will say that it is worth your time and money to pursue the entertainment of this flick.
I haven't seen any of the other MAH movies, and I really have no desire to. There isn't anyone who can give me the thrill that John Carpenter does. There isn't a modern horror movie worth watching I might add. Nobody does it like John
