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

...thank goodness the time wasted is not to long maybe an hour. This work is another example of old ideas rehashed yet again, it's nothing new.
This plot has been done before and to greater effect. It's like the writers didn't want to take the time to come up with anything original so they combined three films and made this one from those ideas: 'Popcorn' (A grade-B horror film from the early 90s), 'The Ninth Gate' (watch that instead of this garbage), and Carpenter's own 'In the 'Mouth of Madness' (also much better than this).
Even the so called "original music" by Cody Carpenter (John's Son) is a rip off of the music his father wrote for 'Halloween'. Listen and you'll know right away what I mean.
Do yourself a favor and don't waste your time on this piece of garbage.
