This year’s Midnight Madness selections at TIFF provide us with another look at Phantasm and Bubba Ho-Tep director Don Coscarelli‘s John Dies At The End. In addition to some high-res stills (some new, some old) – we have a brand new exclusive poster for the film. It’s the third one to be released using gear/weapons featured in the movie. First there was the “Skull Mask”, then “The Bible Belter” and now we have “The Flame Thrower!”
In John Dies at the End, it’s all about the Soy Sauce, a drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. 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 (Rob Mayes) and David (Chase Williamson), 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. Adapted from David Wong’s audacious trans-genre horror novel, John Dies at the End is written and directed by Don Coscarelli (Bubba Ho-Tep) and also stars Clancy Brown and Paul Giamatti.
The Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 6th-16th. Head inside to check out the poster (and some pics)!
