John Dies At The End. Here's his Sundance poster
David Wong's "John Dies at the End" is a terrific book that's hard to describe. It's a hysterical, scary, and weird as hell story about a couple of dirt bags dealing with drug addiction, sex, the paranormal, monsters, and all kinds of trippy visions. So who better to adapt it for film than Don Coscarelli (PHANTASM, BUBBA HO-TEP)?
JOHN DIES AT THE END is just about to have its Sundance premiere and Ain't It Cool premiere the new poster for the film. Love it.
Don't think the bible bat had a name in the book but you can imagine the use.
The official synopsis, which spoilerphobes will surely love- "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."
The film stars newcomers Chase Williamson and Rob Mayes in the lead roles of Dave and John, but Paul Giamatti, Clancy Brown and Doug Jones lend it some cred. Check the teaser trailer out below for an idea of the insanity that Sundance audiences will soon be in store for. If there were any justice in this world the release of a new Coscarelli film would be considered a national holiday. Absolutely can't wait!
