A new trailer for the dark comedy horror film ‘John Dies at the End’ has just been released and it’s as wacky and mind-bending and frightening as you would expect from the man who brought you ‘Bubba Ho-Tep,’ Don Coscarelli.
Written and directed by Coscarelli, the film is based on the novel from David Wong and centers on two guys who come across a new drug with the street name “Soy Sauce,” which allows users to drift across time and space. Only problem is, when you come back down from your high, there are consequences.
Here’s a brief summary of the film:
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 trailer gives enough of the story without spoiling the movie, although the title may give a few things away. It does, however, make me think twice about asking someone to pass the soy sauce the next time I’m eating sushi.
