Magnet Releasing will unleash John Dies at the End (review), the sci-fi/horror movie from horror icon Don Coscarelli (Phantasm, Bubba Ho-Tep) On-Demand tomorrow. To that end, I recently sat down with Coscarelli and star Paul Giamatti (Sideways, “John Adams”) to talk about what attracted them to such strange material. For Coscarelli, it was chance. For Giamatti, well, he connected with it immediately.
“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.”
John Dies At The End hits from Magnet On-Demand tomorrow December 27, 2012 and is in theaters February 3, 2013. You can find more on the film’s Facebook page Head inside for the interview!
