[[InCaseYouForgotWhoWroteIt Directed by]] Creator/JohnCarpenter. Kirby (Norman Reedus) is the owner of a run-down cinema whose girlfriend Annie (Zara Taylor) recently committed suicide. In order to pay a debt he owns to Annie's hateful father Walter (Gary Hetherington), Kirby accepts the request of eccentric millionaire Bellinger (Udo Kier) to locate the only surviving copy of ''La Fin Absolue du Monde'' (The Absolute End of the World) for him, a film ShroudedInMyth that is said to be the ultimate BrownNote.

Added DiffLines:

* BlackComedy: And a ''lot'' of it. Certain episodes can easily pass as an AffectionateParody of similar stories, while others are clearly made with pitch-black comedy in mind.

* AngelicAliens: It is revealed at the end that the human extinction was engineered [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130313165121/villains/images/c/c2/Alien_(The_Screwfly_Solution).jpg by this type of alien]]. The last surviving woman encounters them while fleeing from hunters in the woods. They kill by shooting jets of fire from their hands in a manner similar to a Bible passage quoted by a hunter, and are referred to throughout the segment as "angels". Although they appear to be hostile to humans, it's implied that they decided to wipe humans out as punishment for their [[HumansAreBastards immoral nature]].

* HollywoodAtheist: Haeckel, a know-it all who doesn't believe in God, the soul, or the supernatural, and tries to reproduce [[{{Literature/Frankenstein}} Dr. Frankenstein's]] experiments. This is clearly linked to his materialist view of things, which is proven entirely, horribly wrong by the end.

Oh, and he shares a name with the real biologist Ernst Haeckel, the 19th century German scientist who proposed racist scientific theories and was a materialist (though not an atheist, but a pantheist-he's often mistaken for the former).
