Although I didn’t enjoy the book as much as some people I know — you know exactly who you are, Mr. Cohron — I’m still quite excited about director Don Coscarelli’s adaptation of “John Dies at the End”. The film, of course, is based on Cracked.com editor Jason Pargin’s cult novel, a book which once cost a pretty penny to bring home. Now it’s widely available and reasonably priced. Pick up a copy if you’re in the market for something a little different. Definitely worth the scratch.
Need a synopsis? Here you go:
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.
You passed the latest one-sheet for the film on your way in. Click the image if you want to see it all big-like. And if you missed the previously-released trailer, you should take a few moments out of your schedule this morning and have a look-see. It’s all sorts of cool.
