When a powerful new drug opens the gateway for an inter-dimensional invasion, the only two people on the planet capable of saving mankind are a pair of dubious amateur exorcists. Adapted from author David Wong's cult novel of the same name, Don Coscarelli's John Dies at the End opens to find a revolutionary drug called "Soy Sauce" allowing users to transcend time and space. But it can also have one very disturbing side effect; some people who take Soy Sauce experience a shocking physical transformation. When the world faces a threat that seems beyond human comprehension, only college dropouts John (Rob Mayes) and David (Chase Williamson) have the power to drive the mysterious invaders back. But there's no guarantee that they'll succeed. Paul Giamatti, Clancy Brown, and Doug Jones co-star in this outlandish horror comedy from the director of Bubba Ho-Tep. (allmovie.com)

Creative Mess by antman - April 5, 2013
Coscarelli could possibly be one of the most creative writer-directors in Hollywood -- or maybe David Wong should take credit, but this time around, he has failed to weave his collection of genius moments into a funny, or even interesting movie. John Dies... has some of the most original bits -- I found myself intrigued and impressed throughout the film -- but ultimately Coscarelli fails at crafting a tight, interesting story. It falls flat with an almost deadpan delivery. I kept thinking that this could've been such an amazing movie had it been shaped and handled by a master storyteller. But as far as B movies go, this one is filled with awesome ideas and some decent gore.
