Cigarette burns- 2006, director John Carpenter
Self mutilation, angel torture, snuff films, a movie about a movie so horrifying it drives you to murderous insanity....what more could you want.
Thanks to Starzmedia we have this trailer of one of my favorite indie flicks.
Written by Drew McWeeny and Scott Swan, Directed by John Carpenter ("Halloween," "The Thing")
Jimmy Sweetman (Norman Reedus) knows how to find rare film prints. However, nothing could prepare him for the daunting search for "Le Fin du Monde," a film allegedly shown only once and rumored to have driven its audience into a murderous frenzy before the theater mysteriously erupted in flames. Working for a shadowy patron, Jimmy's increasingly obsessive investigation becomes nightmarish and deadly. Finally he discovers "Le Fin du Monde"'s infamy is well deserved. This supernatural "Chinatown" is a chilling look at the power of cinema and the lengths to which we will go to satiate our private demons.
