Urgence #

Released 6/29/1985

Description: When a neo-Nazi group of terrorists is set to blow a pop concert off the face of the world because it is an anti-racist benefit, they are faced with the intrepid Jean-Pierre Mougin (Richard Berry), a macho sports reporter with zero tolerance for Nazi hate crimes. Going along with Mougin to stop the bombing is Lyza (Fanny Bastien), whose brother was killed by this group of fascists, and so she is ardently seeking revenge. After Mougin gets his hands on a videotape that reveals the plot to blow up the concert and its audience, he and Lyza join forces. As the fuse gets shorter and shorter, Mougin is also joined by sympathetic road gangs. Thus reinforced, he faces his opposition (including crooked cops) in increasingly more desperate attempts to stop Murmeau (Jean Francoise Balmer), the leader of the Nazi gang, from carrying out his terrorist objective.

Cigarette Burns Reviews:

Wow. I was not ready for what this compact hour contained. So much more imaginatively written and better directed and acted than any crap that has passed for horror in the past 30 years.I have seen most of J. Carpenter's films, some I like, some I don't. But with this piece he has surpassed not only himself but most horror movies made either for theaters or TV.It is difficult to write about and describe because it is greatest to not give away too much, another than the premise involves a rare movie that was shown only once, and it caused a riot to erupt in the theater, with deaths involved. The protagonist is hired to search the only known remaining print of the film, and finds himself drawn into something that was much more than he bargained for. Is there something supernatural involved? Does the movie drive folks insane? How can this be? In some respects, there are more questions at the the end that remain unanswered. But, as with the greatest films, that's the method it could be; it stays with you, haunts you, and nags at your brain -- just like the legendary movie within the film, "Le Fin Absolue du Monde." Fully stunning, horrifying and awe-inspiring. A day later, I still can't shake it from my mind.


Cigarette Burns is one of the more entertainingly shocking tiny horror movies I've seen in a while. It's only an hour long, but it still type of sits well in that zone between a short movie and a 'real' feature-length film. If anything a storyline like this should be made into a slightly longer movie (whether it would be better or give more possibilities for fright I don't know). But for TV it's cute nice stuff, mostly as it builds and builds in the climax. What was interesting too was watching the DVD extras and seeing Carpenter's own view on some of the film's clichéd sayings about how 'film can change you', which even he admits is BS. To him, the entire Le Fin Absolue du Monde part of the storyline should be anything supernatural (and its practically a retread of related material from In the Mouth of Madness) or anything that keeps the plot moving along. It's a MacGuffin that does have a need to now be seen by the audience- if not the audience's in the movie then us watching at home- but when it is it's genuinely constructive in an ironic way.Norman Reedus proves he can act with a nice script and defined hero as a theater owner and rare-film buff who meets up with a spooky collector (Udo Kier as usual quite creepy and darkly funny in equal measure) who wants him to track down the obscure French movie titled The Absolute End of the World, which only screened once to a violent crowd. But right off the bat things don't seem right as Kier's hero keeps a living 'Angel' from the film's production with its wings clipped off. As Reedus goes deeper into the search, he then begins to realize its result as it stirs up old rotten memories into his consciousness. Carpenter deals with the dialog scenes really quite well, and it's refreshing to see him direct more realistic scenes here and there as opposed to his newest movies where style and flash trumps the words. And there really can't be enough told about Gregory Nicotero's make-up, which is there at greatest to fully supply Carpenter with what he needs to work off his visual scares.And towards the end, as Kier finally gets a print of the movie in his possession, it really is some of the more freaky, bloody, and unexpected scenes in a Carpenter work I've seen since the Thing just for sheer visceral impact. Without giving away too much, it does type of border on the obvious of what might occur with some of the characters. But the method the actors pull it off corresponds well with how the 'MacGuffin' is finally shown, as a rip-off on pretentious violent art-film tripe that had me grinning as I cringed. Cigarette Burns is a successful tiny pot-boiler that probably might work better for Carpenter fanatics and those who search 'cult films' fascinating as the topics matter.


"Cigarette Burns" is a unbelievable tale from John Carpenter that was a delight to watch.This "Masters of Horror" episode is dark and grim. It's both surreal and frighteningly real, like a terrible nightmare. There are photos contained in this hour of tv that are original and shocking.Carpenter's touches are filled with a wicked sense of humour. For those cynics who state that this master has lost his earlier powers of film-making, watch this episode! Udo Kier is creepy as hell in this tale and Norman Reedus is gripping as the lead character.Surprisingly violent and challenging, "Cigarette Burns" is a very powerful entry in the "Masters of Horror" series.
