Audiences at Austin's Fantastic Fest last night were lucky enough to catch a peek at Don Coscarelli's latest, John Dies at the End — based on the novel of the same name by David Wong (AKA Jason Pargin). The Phantasm and Bubba Ho-Tep director hasn't delivered anything new since a 2005 Masters of Horror episode, so the premiere has been highly anticipated to say the least. Fans of the book — which began as a web series in 2001 — have also wondered what would come of the online phenomenon, which combines horror and sci-fi tropes, with dark humor.
Paul Giamatti, Clancy Brown, and Doug Jones star alongside newbies Chase Williamson and Rob Mayes who are the two slacker buddies that are charged with saving all of humanity. Paranormal creatures and a wicked time-traveling drug known as Soy Sauce create a living hell for the two friends and the residents of their midwestern town.
