Absolute Vow

In One Thousand BC, a virgin and her friends venture into the hills, to grieve and ponder the grim fate that awaits her.


Starring Parker Love Bowling, Rodney Bingenheimer and Lloyd Kaufman

Written and directed by Jared Masters







From the visionary mind of the man that brought us Slink and After School Massacre, comes a new kind of cinematic experience, an adaptation from Judges 11, in the Old Testament. Biblical scholars have called it the strangest story in the Holy canon, the unsettling tale of Jephthah, who was faced with a very difficult decision; sacrifice his only daughter, or break the vow he made to God Almighty.



The film is Jared Masters’ most profound, intricate and complicated production thus far. The bizarre story has been on Masters’ heart for some time, and finally, his Bible epic will be made and will give new meaning to the faith-based film, which also has elements of horror, fantasy and sensationalism.



Absolute Vow stars the sensational teen scream queen Parker Love Bowling as the Virgin without a name, with Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger), Kansas Bowling (B.C. Butcher), Aki Aleong (Pound of Flesh), Art Roberts (Interstellar Wars), Rodney Bingenheimer (Mayor of the Sunset Strip), Dallas Chandler (Ballet of Blood), Kimberly Cohen (Ballet of Blood), Marley Uribe (Cupcake), Meg Dick (Roller Junkies), Kalvin Madsen (Now Here), Walter Hochbrueckner (Love Carries), Daphne Fischer (Triangles), Joan Apperson (White Slaves of K-Town), Sierra Renfro (Naxian Prime), Vera Taylor (Boonville Redemption), Geo Sargent (Slink) and Aaron Berjohn (The Cowboy Chronicles). Written and Directed by Jared Masters.



The movie is rumored to be shot on 16mm black and white film, with a cast of thousands. Hundreds of men have constructed the massive Biblical sets needed to bring this story to the silver screen. Working with and training exotic livestock (especially camels) have been one of the greatest challenges yet, and designing so many wonderful costumes has also been very trying on the wardrobe department. But it will all be worth it in the end, when men, women and children will see the picture, and be so deeply moved they will not be able to go on living the same shallow life they once knew.





“Ambitious … Biblical ode…. I have to admire the scope of which Jared Masters is reaching for…. There’s an offbeat charm to everything going on here…. If you’re interested in theatre of the weird, ABSOLUTE VOW definitely fits the bill.”

“Intelligent … Thoughtful…. This movie is very probably the most unusual entry into the rather unusual filmography of exploitation filmmaker Jared Masters….”
