Masters of Horror: John Carpenter: Cigarette Burns
Hired by a millionaire collector (Udo Kier) to retrieve the infamous Le Fin du Monde -- a violent movie that reportedly causes viewers to turn into homicidal maniacs after they watch it -- an unsuspecting theater owner (Norman Reedus) begins to fall under the film's spell. John Carpenter directs this unsettling installment of the "Masters of Horror" series, following one man's search for the holy grail of horror cinema.
This movie was difficult to follow at first. There was a creature chained up and an old movie collector requesting an old film for $2oo,ooo. It was good offer for the guy, but everything seemed mashed together & nothing made sense until the end. Then the ending was surprising and brutal. It was worth watching once.
