John Dies at the End

Poster for John Dies at the End

Premiering at Sundance and playing in both TIFF and SXSW, this fantasy-comedy-horror from the director of Bubba Ho-Tep brings David Wong’s far-out book to the screen, complete with dimension-shifting drugs, zombies, a red meat monster and Paul Giamatti. Oh, and spoiler alert: John dies at the end. More

It's a drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit - on the street they call it Soy Sauce. Its 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.

A thoroughly unpredictable horror-comedy -- and an immensely entertaining one, too.

The "wackiness" (scare quotes included) is mostly ceaseless and tiresome, from the ravenous zombie neo-Nazi that leads things off to the Galaxy Quest rejects that figure in the movie's annoyingly anticlimactic finale.

It's a ridiculous, preposterous, sometimes maddening experience, but also kind of a blast.

Starts with a bang but quickly loses speed.

Gonzo freakiness in such doses that cult status is practically ensured.
