John Dies at the End (2012) – Trailer

Don Coscarelli (Beastmaster, Phantasm I – IV, Bubba Ho-Tep, Incident on and Off a Mountain Road, yes I’m a fan) returns from over a half-decade hiatus to helm John Dies at the End, based on the David Wong novel of the same name. This is a perfect match for Coscarelli, who’s work is often very strange and much of it takes place in other worlds. I would best compare this trailer to a Richard Kelly or Terry Gilliam film- strange, stranger and ever more strange. If you were a fan of Donnie Darko chances are this trailer will excite you.

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.
