Super Bloody Anti-Piracy Ad For ‘John Dies at the End’

image31

Typically anti-piracy videos annoy the living shit out of me, but I got a kick out of Magnet Releasing’s plea for you to rent John Dies at the End (review), the sci-fi/horror movie from horror icon Don Coscarelli (Phantasm, Bubba Ho-Tep) that’s now on all VOD platforms. Also in theaters February 3, 2013, you can now write your reviews here!

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.

The movie premiered as a work in progress at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, played at SXSW and, as a finished version, and closed out the Midnight Madness sidebar at TIFF where Magnet acquired the adaptation. Get more at the film’s Facebook.

        Se_7_eN, i just watched the movie last night (my friend & i watched it on his VOD deal) and it was pretty good! it was refreshing and original, VERY quirky, fun and had some silly/fun gore.

        it’s definitely a comedy/MAJOR horror/minor but it works. it’s also all over the place and not trying to be a deep character study type movie but it’s 100% worth watching. i give it a 7.5 out of 10.

    I’ll endure that happily if it means I can finally see this movie.

    David Wong wrote a very good article about how making media available in a timely manner, at an appropriate price, would go a long way towards reducing piracy. He used the VOD release of John Dies At The End as a primary example of how to go about this, which is great until I went to try and rent it in iTunes and realised I couldn’t because I’m one of the around 84% of Internet users who don’t reside in the United States.
