Synopsis

Savannah (Carolyn Neff) and Cooper (Rusty Joiner), madly in love with each other, share a traumatic experience from several years back when Savannah was still a child. But just as they seem to have conquered their inner demons, the past catches up on them. Pursued by enigmatic gang leader Raf (David Carradine) and his plans of retaliation and murder, Savannah finds herself caught between absolute passion and absolute evil...

Absolute Evil - Final Exit pits newcomers Carolyn Neff and Rusty Joiner against veteran actor Carradine and Fassbinder icon Ulli Lommel, who also wrote and directed. [1]

Premiere

The film was accepted to Berlin International Film Festival and saw its premiere in February 2009. The film was shown in the Panorama section. Director/writer Ulli Lommel has been nominated for Golden Berlin Bear in 1973 for his film The Tenderness of the Wolves.

The Hollywood Reporter published an online review[2] of Absolute Evil, in which Peter Brunette wrote: "At least once every festival, critics collectively scratch their heads and say "How did THAT get selected?" Absolute Evil is the tentative awardee for worst film at this year's Berlinale. Shot in an ugly digital format (not HD) that is often out of focus, the stock thriller structure also sports horribly cliched, repetitive dialogue, dramatic "gestures" that we've seen a thousand times, and very bad performances (with the exception of David Carradine, who seems to be having the time of his life). Commercial prospects, aside from a few DVD buyers who might be seeking campy entertainment, seem quite remote."

Trilogy

Absolute Evil - Final Exit is a first part of the trilogy that will continue with Absolute Evil - Life After Death and Absolute Evil - Back From The Dead [3].
