JOHN DIES AT THE END
Horror-comedy film by Don Coscarelli
In JOHN DIES AT THE END, it’s all about the Soy Sauce, a drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. 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 (Rob Mayes) and David (Chase Williamson), 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. Adapted from David Wong’s audacious trans-genre horror novel, JOHN DIES AT THE END is written and directed by Don Coscarelli (Bubba Ho-Tep, Phantasm and The Beastmaster) and also stars Clancy Brown, Glynn Turman and Paul Giamatti. The film premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival to great acclaim.
"Gory, weird and genuinely funny."-Film Equals
"A very FUNNY, very TRIPPY experience."-Fangoria
"A mindf**k of a movie that never compromises on its own insanity."-Toronto Film Scene
"A punk rock Ghostbusters by way of H.P. Lovecraft. Its best moments are exhilarating. The film has enough trippy and original ideas for ten movies.” - A.V. Club
“Immensely entertaining. A thoroughly unpredictable horror-comedy and gonzo gorefest.” –Variety
