Story


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.

Based on the novel by author David Wong, John Dies at the End was adapted and directed by horror auteur Don Coscarelli. The film premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival to great acclaim.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it's one of those films that might as well be announced with the words "cult classic" emblazoned on the marquee. It's an interesting failure that's almost worth seeing for that reason alone..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
“..horror-comedy from Phantasm director starts with a bang but quickly loses speed..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
“..a thoroughly unpredictable horror-comedy -- and an immensely entertaining one, too..”
by Rob Nelson [Variety]
