Many people have always wanted to have the ability to travel across time, putting themselves into the future or past, and seeing where it all leads them. In the upcoming horror thriller, John Dies at the End, a powerful new street drug can do just that. Only, when some people go on their trip, they never come back the same.
In the movie, based on David Wong’s 2010 novel of the same name, two slacker friends are introduced to the mind-bending new drug called Soy-Sauce. Eventually, the twosome discover that the drug is actually all a part of an alien invasion when they notice people beginning to act differently. Quickly, the world becomes overrun with aliens and it’s up to the college-dropouts to save the world.
The film stars Paul Giamatti as well as Rob Mayes and Chase Williamson as the two friends. The movie was written and directed by the B-Movie legend himself, Don Coscarelli, who is responsible for classics like “Phantasm” and the Bruce Campbell romp, “Bubba Ho-Tep”.
The film will screen as a part of the Sundance Film Festival, beginning January 19 in Park City, Utah, and will play at their midnight showings.
The recently released trailer below makes the movie look pretty awesome and unlike things we have seen before. I had originally seen the cover of Wong’s novel a few months ago and wanted to eventually read the book but, I may just see the movie instead. I’m excited about this one; what do you guys think?
