Overview

From the twisted mind of Don Coscarelli, director of Phantasm and Bubba Ho-Tep, comes another outrageous mind-bender destined for cult status. David and John, a pair of college dropouts, find themselves unwittingly caught up in a race to save humankind courtesy of a new psychotropic drug referred to as ‘soy sauce’. With the potential to open up the time/space continuum, this suspect narcotic launches our affable duo into an alternative world of conspiracies, monsters and a whole host of metaphysical mayhem.

Inventively adapted from the much-loved book of the same name, John Dies at the End comes with a plot so outlandish, the resulting experience is almost impossible to summarise. The only thing that is certain in this avalanche of wild ideas and crazy humour is that a frenetic trip lies ahead, whether you can keep up or not.
