John Dies at the End was an awesomely fun movie, and I think a lot of you will like it when you finally get the opportunity to see it. It was made for the internet audience. I loved the odd craziness of it all! Another great trailer has been released giving you a little more insight into the madness of the film.
The movie was written and directed by Don Coscarelli (Bubba Ho-Tep) and was adapted from the novel written by Cracked.com's David Wong. It stars Paul Giamatti, Chase Williamson as David, Rob Meyers as John, Doug Jones, and Clancy Brown, who plays a badass Russian paranormal psychic named Dr. Albert Marconi.
Here's the synopsis:
It's a drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. On the street they call it Soy Sauce, and users drift across time and dimensions. But some who come back are no longer human. Suddenly a silent otherworldly invasion is underway, and mankind needs a hero. What it gets instead is John and David, a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs. Can these two stop the oncoming horror in time to save humanity? No. No, they can't.
Here's a little bit of what I said in my review,
I loved that they took the film where they did, and accepted it for what it was, embracing the bizarreness of it all. I probably would have loved it just as much had they held back a bit as well. Frankly, I enjoyed the characters. It was their personalities mixed in with the supernatural element and wackiness that made this movie so fun and entertaining for me. There are so many ways this movie could have sucked ass, but it was these characters that made it what it was and made it work so well.
John Dies at the End is sure to end up being a cult classic, and it's not to be missed when it eventually gets released. You need to experience this movie for yourself, nothing I or anyone else says can prepare you for the absurd hysteria!
Magnet will release the movie on January 25th, 2013. Watch the latest trailer and tell us if it looks good to you!
