Kirby is an unsuccesful owner of a theater.
He lost his wife when she committed suicide at the period they were drug addicts.
He also owns his father in law a big loan of money.
When the weird collector of films Bellinger (Udo Kier enjoyable as always) employing him to find the most extreme film ever made he will accept the deal.
But ''Le Fin Absolue du Monde" is a cursed film and everyone who saw that is condemned dying a horrifying death.
Carpenter is one of the best horror directors and he proves it again!
