Don Coscarelli‘s film John Dies at the End, which features humans and monsters drifting between dimensions thanks to a popular drug, has been earning fans at festivals for the past year, and it is finally available to be seen by everyone thanks to the miracle of VOD. Many films that are available digitally also end up being seen by a lot of people thanks to piracy, and the marketing folks working for John Dies at the End have put together a great little trailer that hopes to prevent that from happening this time.
Looks like some of the film’s fun, grisly moments ended up in this trailer, so be warned of that before going in, but with that disclaimer shared, have a look below.
John Dies at the End is based on David Wong’s “trans-genre horror novel” of the same title. Don Coscarelli (Phantasm, Bubba Ho-tep) wrote and directed. It stars Rob Mayes, Chase Williamson, Clancy Brown, Glynn Turman and Paul Giamatti. It is available now on VOD and digital platforms, and hits theaters on January 25.
In JOHN DIES AT THE END, it’s all about the Soy Sauce, a drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. 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 (Rob Mayes) and David (Chase Williamson), 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.
