27. John Carpenter’s Cigarette Burns (2005)

A movie about people saying “La Fin Absolue Du Monde” as many times as possible in 59 minutes while a baby-faced Norman Reedus has a Eurotrash adventure across beautiful Vancouver, Canada, at the behest of Udo Keir’s poorly-decorated ambitions! Meta-commentary about the film business abounds in this gory movie-about-a-movie-that’s-more-than-a-movie. And for our Star Trek fans, there a special appearance from none other than B'Etor/Chief Examiner Nimira’s own Gwynyth Walsh. Join us as we review this episode of Masters of Horror in the latest installment of Loathsome Things: A Horror Movie Podcast!
