  • When a powerful new drug opens the gateway for an inter-dimensional invasion, the only two people on the planet capable of saving mankind are a pair of dubious amateur exorcists. Adapted from author David Wong's cult novel of the same name, Don Coscarelli's JOHN DIES AT THE END opens to find a revolutionary drug called "Soy Sauce" allowing users to transcend time and space. But it can also have one very disturbing side effect; some people who take Soy Sauce experience a shocking physical transformation. When the world faces a threat that seems beyond human comprehension, only college dropouts John (Rob Mayes) and David (Chase Williamson) have the power to drive the mysterious invaders back. But there's no guarantee that they'll succeed. Paul Giamatti, Clancy Brown, and Doug Jones co-star in this outlandish horror comedy from the director of BUBBA HO-TEP.

  • Critic Reviews
    "[T]his stoner GHOSTBUSTERS, an altered state disguised as a movie, may also add up to a hot cult item....Go for the freaky fun of it..."
    Rolling Stone

    "Flaked with offbeat witticisms, cheese ball effects and fanboy splatter gore, the surreal JOHN DIES AT THE END has the vibe of a shaggy dog story."
    Los Angeles Times

    "Its a ridiculous, preposterous, sometimes maddening experience, but also kind of a blast."
    New York Times

    "[With] some deliciously deadpan performances, especially that of Chase Williamson....What he's actually doing, however, is metering out emotion with a precision that belies his lack of experience; remarkably, this is his first feature film."
    Wall Street Journal

    "[I]ts not every B-horror picture that combines demonic creatures and ultra-violence with musings about what it means to be alive in a world thats getting more unreal by the day."
    A.V. Club

    "[T]he comic horror extends in many directions....At its finest, JOHN glides on this charming fusion of ideas and goofy fun..."
    Chicago Sun-Times
