Premiere[edit]

The film was accepted to Berlin International Film Festival and saw its premiere in February 2009. The film was shown in the Panorama section.

The Hollywood Reporter published an online review[1] 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[edit]

Absolute Evil – Final Exit is the first part of the trilogy that will continue with Absolute Evil – Life After Death and Absolute Evil – Back from the Dead.[2]
