I don’t know a whole lot about this movie, there was a trailer released a month or so ago, but it kind of fell off my radar. It seems like a cool premise and Don Coscarelli hit homeruns with Phantasm and Bubba Ho-Tep so I’m confident this one will be entertaining. The poster is reminiscent of the “Inglorious Basterds” bat poster with more brutality, if it’s possibly to be more brutal than the Bear Jew. Check it out and check out the synopsis and the trailer, I think this could be a surprisingly good flick.
On the street, they call it “soy sauce.” It’s a paranormal, psychoactive drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. Its users drift across time and dimensions, but some who come back are devoid of all humanity. While most of Earth’s inhabitants remain blissfully oblivious to its threat. Make no mistake, an otherworldly invasion is under way, and mankind needs to be saved. Enter John and David, a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs. How can these guys possibly be expected to rescue mankind from certain destruction?
Originally erupting from the devilishly ingenious mind of David Wong, alter ego of Cracked.com’s senior editor Jason Pargin, JOHN DIES AT THE END began as a Web serial that became an Internet phenomenon. In the highly capable hands of legendary cult horror director Don Coscarelli (Phantasm, Bubba Ho-Tep), Pargin’s wildly trippy vision is forged into big-screen eye candy. The end result will take you to places in your subconscious that you shouldn’t be allowed to visit.
