John Dies at the End (23-Jan-2012)

Director: Don Coscarelli

Writers: Don Coscarelli; David Wong

Keywords: Horror/Comedy

Film adaptation of the 2007 novel of the same name follows two bumbling young adults as they attempt to save mankind from a uniquely bizarre threat.

Adapted from the cult horror novel and Internet phenomenon of the same name, John Dies at the End centers on the existence of a strange new street drug known as "Soy Sauce" that promises an out-of-body experience transporting its users across time and dimensions, with one catch: Some of its victims don't return from their otherworldly voyage as humans. When David and John, a pair of hopeless college dropouts, learn of the sheer threat posed to Earth by Soy Sauce, they embark on a fatalistic journey that stays true to the film's title.
